I love that this book is seasonal, using very simple ingredients. Pick them up fresh at your local Farmer's Market or grow them in your back yard. This book is also quite prayerful. Loaded in recipes that celebrate saintly feast days through out the year. Even a recipe dedicated to a saint from our Orthodox cousins with a brief exerpt about his life.
Many of the recipes are geared towards cooking for a number of folks, be it a family or a community of monks or friars. I am a single person. So I have the option of sharing with my neighbor, or cutting the recipe in half. The soups freeze well.
If you like tasty vegetarian food, or nearly vegetarian food (he has a few recipes for fish) I am sure you will find something to enjoy in this book. Also we all need to eat more vegetables, and Brother Victor has plenty of them in just about everything. Getting your "five a day" will not be problem with "From a Monastery Kitchen."
