'What underlies this entertaining, informative account of monastic diet is the unexplored issue of food consumption as a means exercising individual and social control... this is a book that does more than it says on the tin.'(Times Higher Education Supplement)
Andrew Jotischky's book is a valuable addition to the literature on the monastic life and deserves more than a specialist readership. And it has many appetising monastic recipes. (BBC History Magazine)
