Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist is a book in which the author shares so many of her favorite recipes in life. Along with each recipe, in fact before she shares each recipe, she shares a story related to the recipe. Maybe the recipe is one her grandmother has made for years. Maybe it's one that she's made for many, many friends. Maybe it's one that gives her comfort. Each story is heartwarming in its own way and gets you excited for the recipe to come. Shauna brilliantly shares the information in her book and it is fabulous.
I heard about this book several months ago when someone tweeted about it. When I saw it up for review at BookSneeze, I knew I had to review it. It took me a bit to get into it and I'm not sure why. But when I explored the book further, I read 3/4 of its pages in 2 hours. I love the recipes and I love the stories. For me, cooking is not just something I do for sustenance, it's something that brings me closer to my husband to those family members and friends that I have the blessing of cooking for. This book just spurred that on even more.
While reading, I realized just how long it has been since we have had loved ones into our house to prepare a meal for them. I also realized just how much I miss it. We are entering a new season in our lives but I hope soon to cook more for others. Thanks to Shauna for the inspiration!
I hope you'll check out this book! If you have any questions, please ask! :)
