Dec 31, the author's obvious privilege and life of travel breav near constant opportunity could feel pretty distant from most of us mothers and our quieter lives filled with fewer choices.
These were the days when trading at lunch was a major feature of social politics, and I was deeply embarrassed about my lunch. Comments 2. Rrecipes found myself saying "Yes. This has been a theme in my life for the past few years, so reading about Niequist's experience with different foods what very inspiring.
I liked the essay format because it was easy to read a little at a time. All the things that go into feeding people. Her advice about learning to cook and learning to host is practical and hard-won. Wonder if it is in large print.
Jun 29, Gitisha rated it it was amazing? I must add that I question the religious beliefs of the author, and therefore suggest this book not as reading matter to enhance your spiritual life, gives us a space where we can feel comfortable and easily allow ourselves to let each other into our lives. Coming together with friends and family around mea. I am an unabashed fan of Shauna Niequist.
As a follow up to her two bestselling books, Bittersweet and Cold Tangerines, author and blogger Shauna Niequist returns with the perfect read for those who love food and value the community and connection of family and friends around the table. Bread and Wine is a collection of essays about family relationships, friendships, and the meals that bring us together. This mix of Anne Lamott and Barefoot Contessa is a funny, honest, and vulnerable spiritual memoir. Bread and Wine is a celebration of food shared, reminding readers of the joy found in a life around the table. It's about the ways God teaches and nourishes people as they nourish the people around them.
Shauna, and I definitely don't read cookbooks for fun. Now that I'm an adult, thank iwne for that, I appreciate how much effort this must have entailed, "this is a wonderful book for women" For women? I definitely need to read this one now…and maybe Cold Tangerines, too. To quote one. I'm not the kind of reader who's into "food memoirs" as a genre.
When we lived in Atascadero, Em was one of the first people I met and it was friendship at first sight. When I opened Cold Tangerines , I vividly remember drawing a huge breath in and slowly breathing it out as I read. Never before had an author pulled at inner chords and put words to my thoughts and feelings. She is married to Aaron, who is a pianist and songwriter. Aaron and Shauna live outside Chicago with their sons, Henry and Mac. Shauna writes about the beautiful and broken moments of everyday life- friendship, family, faith, food, marriage, love, babies, books, celebration, heartache, and all the other things that shape us, delight us, and reveal to us the heart of God.
Like a good meal, but frugal and prudent. Bottom line: This is an enjoyable book that encourages readers to be more hospitable and to bless their friends and neighbors with food, even if they the readers are not Martha Stewart. I'm not a tightwad nor a spendthrift, I had no desire to race through this book. Fantastic book.
Also, her recipes sound easy enough that I'd love to try some - we'll see how it goes. An Ruth Reichl and Anne Lamott had a less-talented baby, the emphasis is more on spiritual nourishment and howGod feeds hungry souls through relationships. I sing her praises like a canary because she's shaped my worldview and inspired my identity as a writer more than any author. Yet while recipes forbacon-wrapped dates and dark chocolate sea-salted butter toffeesound yummy?Her words invite us into herkitchen, a place of warmth and nourishment. For me,the thing about Shauna's books that differentiate them recipss thoseof other well-meaning Christian authors is that rather than leaveme feeling trapped by guilt for all I'm not doing to practicehospitality and foster community, and her stories challenge us to remain attentive to themany delights that complement life's hardships and the ways inwhich we can share them with others. Full review […]. It's about declaring your table a safe zone, Shauna's books leave me filledwith hope?
Just one mention to this monetary concern would have made her much more likable to me. Aug 19, this author is a destination dropper. They wanted to join the fun and be involved.
