Product Description

Do you love food? Who doesn't really? Eating is a necessary activity, but in His overwhelming abundance, God has blessed us with thousands of ways to satisfy our hunger--ripe mangoes, chicken cacciatore, crusty bread and pungent cheese, a warm and smoky pinot noir--the world is filled with creative and delicious opportunities to enjoy. And one of the best ways to enjoy this abundance is with the people we love and cherish, gathered around the table, receiving nourishment from the food and from each other.
Author and speaker Shauna Niequist believes in the power of food and community as well, and in her latest collection of stories, Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table, she shares from her heart and her kitchen. With Shauna, you'll uncover why food is so important for our bodies and our souls, and how unbalance in one area of life can lead to unbalance in others. You'll explore the themes of feasting and fasting, celebration and mourning, brokenness and healing through stories and hand-picked recipes. Bread & Wine also includes a discussion guide for a four week book/cooking club, and tips from Shauna on entertaining with sample menus. As you read, you'll discover more of the sacred in your everyday, as you slow down and enjoy what happens around the table.

Publisher's Description

As a follow up to her two bestselling books, Bittersweet and Cold Tangerines, author and blogger Shauna Niequist returns with the perfect read for those who love food and value the community and connection of family and friends around the table.

Bread & Wine is a collection of essays about family relationships, friendships, and the meals that bring us together. This mix of Anne Lamott and Barefoot Contessa is a funny, honest, and vulnerable spiritual memoir. Bread & Wine is a celebration of food shared, reminding readers of the joy found in a life around the table. It’s about the ways God teaches and nourishes people as they nourish the people around them. It’s about hunger, both physical and otherwise, and the connections between the two.

With wonderful recipes included, from Bacon-Wrapped Dates to Mango Chicken Curry to Blueberry Crisp, readers will be able to recreate the comforting and satisfying meals that come to life in Bread & Wine.

Author Bio

 

Shauna Niequist is the author of Cold Tangerines, Bittersweet, Bread & Wine and Savor. She is married to Aaron, and they have two wild and silly and darling boys, Henry and Mac. They live outside Chicago, where Aaron leads The Practice and is recording a project called A New Liturgy. Shauna also writes for the Storyline Blog, and for IF:Table, she is a member of the Relevant podcast, and a guest teacher at her church. Shauna’s three great loves are her family, dinner parties, and books, and she believes that vulnerable storytelling, hard laughter, and cold pizza for breakfast can cure almost anything.

 

Editorial Reviews

Pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy the friendship and hospitality found around Niequist’s table. The author of Cold Tangerines and Bittersweet serves up portions of friendship, family, and faith, with sides of humor, insight, and favorite recipes, for a satisfying read that can double as a group study. (A discussion guide and recommended readings are tucked in the back of the book, with recipes and a sample menu for book/cooking clubs.) Niequist writes with vulnerability and honesty that make the reader hunger to be one of the friends and family members who grace her table. Struggles with getting pregnant, juggling family and career, and making time for deep friendships are among the life events discussed against the backdrop of meals. Cooking enthusiasts, whether they are experienced or are novices, will enjoy the talk about food and will want to try the recipes featured at the end of each chapter. Yet while recipes for bacon-wrapped dates and dark chocolate sea-salted butter toffee sound yummy, the emphasis is more on spiritual nourishment and how God feeds hungry souls through relationships.
