Author and chef David Geisser teams up with author Thomas Kelly to combine their respected talents to produce not only a cookbook, but a work of “book art.” Thanks to the photography of Roy Matter, the book is a visual delight. The decided European flare makes this book a sophisticated blend of easy-to-read recipes, historic traditions (arranged in order from Advent to the Epiphany), Bible passages, and even a section about Christmas with the Popes.
The Christmas cookie recipes and cheese fondue section pleased me the most.
Christmas is the ultimate season of faith, family and food. The Vatican Christmas Cookbook helps celebrate the joyous season dedicated to the birth of Jesus.
