Table of Plenty invites readers into experiencing meals as a sacred time. Author Susan Muto grew up in an Italian family, with a stay-at-home mother whose love for cooking permeates this book. Her prose is highly descriptive and evocative; one feels as if one is right there in the kitchen with Muto and her mother as they go about preparing a meal. Rich marinara sauce, zesty eggplant, a simple loaf of bread and a spinach salad: each becomes an opportunity for reflection on experiencing the goodness of God through the food we eat and the company we share.The audio edition of this book can be downloaded via Audible.   Stock #: B36687

Table of Plenty: Food for Body and Spirit (Stories, Reflections, Recipes

Excellent read. Family stories. Wisdom. Recipes unique & outstanding.

A Disappointment

The reflections are fine, but the recipes are too rich for the health of most of us very ordinary people. They called for ingredients we never have in our plain-cooking sisters.

Food for thought

Food tastes better when it goes together with a story. This is that kind of book. Along with every delicious recipe is a life well lived.

Very pleased

Good reading and good recipes!
