Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table (With Recipes) by Shauna Niequist

April 7, 2013 Leave a comment

Meal time is one of the most important, universal human experiences.

Ms Niequist gives us a peek into her family’s stories through the lens of food.

One of my favorite stories is of her family arriving in Paris, tired from long days of travel and sightseeing, and getting caught in a tiny hotel room with her mother-in-law. My own family has had similar adventures on the road.

This book is unique. After each story, the author shares a recipe inspired by her experiences.

After describing her antics in Paris, she shares a wonderful three-ingredient chocolate mousse recipe.

The recipes range from simple to moderately complex, and the ingredients sometimes require a trip to Trader Joe’s. If this doesn’t sound appealing, then go ahead and borrow the book to read the stories.

But if you’re intrigued, I recommend purchasing this book and keeping it on your kitchen counter. The recipes are flexible, not too scripted, and allow for individual creativity.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for this honest review.
