This book is great - cookbook and tour guide. The recipes I made have all been delicious (Chocolate Espresso Cake, OMG!) I enjoyed learning more about the monasteries and the work that goes into their products. The guide transports you to another place and allows you to try their food from your own home -amazing! Certainly more interesting than other standard cookbooks.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Part cookbook, part travel guide, this wonderful collection of recipies of food and drink products made by monks and nuns is my choice for the Christmas gift I'm giving to everyone on my list! Catholic culinary expert Madeline Scherb traveled the globe to visit monks and nuns in monastaries and abbeys in France, Germany, Belgium and ofcourse the US to track down these delicious recipies. She also offers fascinating histories of the monasteries and advice to those who plan to visit. Even if you're an armchair traveler, you're going to love the hevaenly decsriptions of the places she visits and the people she meets. This is a real treat for foodies and travel buffs! I hope there's a TASTE OF HEAVEN II in the works!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
