About the Book:
 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


My Thoughts about the Book
This book was a delight to read. It was the perfect combination of two of my favorite things; cooking and writing. Shauna writes about relationships and how food and eating around the table helps to strengthen and enhance these relationships. I love how Shauna is open and honest about her journey. I felt like I was there with her throughout the book whether it was when she was learning how to cook or when she talks about her struggles with infertility.  I love how she ties each chapter around a theme and ties in a recipe with the theme. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves family, friends and food!
