Bread And Wine By Shauna Niequist

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 and 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 and 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 and Wine.

Cooking and writing? Umm, yes please! The author writes about relationships we have and how conversations around the dinner table help to grow these relationships and also includes a recipe. It's not all happy go lucky, the author also writes about failures and loss as well as success and love. I read part of this book in the kitchen while rummaging through my pantry to see if I had all the ingredients to make a recipe! Haha. I this this is my first Niequist book, but it gave me such a warm fuzzy feeling, it won't be my last. It almost felt as if I was reading a diary of some sort.
