Bread & Wine is a literary feast about the moments and meals that bring us together.
New York Times bestselling author Shauna Niequist offers an enchanting mix of funny and vulnerable storytelling in this collection of recipes and essays about the surprising and sacred things that happen when people gather around the table.
With beautiful and evocative writing, Shauna explores the sweet and savory moments when family and friends sit down together. She invites us to see how God teaches and feeds us even as we nourish the people around us, and ponders how hunger, loneliness, and restlessness lead us back to the table again.
Part cookbook and part spiritual memoir, Bread & Wine illuminates how sharing food together mirrors the way we share our hearts with each other, and with God. And it explores what it means to follow a God who reveals His presence in breaking bread and passing a cup.
For anyone who has found themselves swapping stories over plates of pasta, sharing take-out on the couch, laughing over a burnt recipe, and lingering a little longer for one more bite ... this book is for you.
Recreate the meals that come to life in each essay with recipes for Goat Cheese Biscuits, Bacon-Wrapped Dates, Mango Chicken Curry, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Toffee, and many other wonderful dishes. A satisfying read for heart and body, this book is one you'll want to keep close at hand all year round.
