Saintly Feasts : Food for Saints and Scholars, Paperback / softback Book

Saintly Feasts : Food for Saints and Scholars Paperback / softback


A wonderful collection of delicious recipes, originally prepared as the main Sunday meal at the Jesuit house, 'Manresa', in Birmingham.

Each recipe is accompanied by a saint with a (sometimes tenuous) connection to the ingredients or the dish itself.

A brief life of each saint gives the book a very special dimension.

Two Irish women living in Birmingham wanted to give something back to the Jesuits.

They decided a way to do so was to cook Sunday dinner for them, and they continued to do this for twenty-two years.

Now in their 90s and 70s respectively, they have brought their years of Sunday cooking ideas together in this very special collection.
