About this Book
In A BIBLICAL FEAST, Morse presents a fascinating overview of what the people of Scripture ate and why. She includes descriptions of the 84 primary foods mentioned in the Bible. Many of these ancient ingredients, such as lentils, leeks, garlic, almonds, figs, olives and honey remain staples of contemporary Mediterranean kitchens. Wholesome dishes include Lentil Salad with Watercress & Goat Cheese, Sesame-Almond-Nigella Mix, Ezekiel’s Bread, Saffroned Millet with Walnuts and Poached Apricots with Pomegranates in Honey Syrup.
This is a beautiful book! I loved looking at the pictures that the author used as well as reading about the different recipes. The author includes passages of scripture that reference the particular food. Although, I never had the opportunity to try out any of the recipes (sorry, I wish I had time to cook such fun things) the author gives clear direction and even suggestions on where to find some of the ingredients.
This is a unique cookbook that would be fun for cooks that like to new and different items as well as those who have an interest in Biblical history.
Disclaimer: I did receive this book from the author but I was under no obligation to give anything but my honest opinion.
