Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist is the perfect combination of uplifting stories, inspiring quotes, and delicious recipes, all with the backbone of dedication and faith. Niequist, who has a passion for food and entertaining devotedly tells the stories that most fondly remind her of childhood meals, traditional comfort foods, family celebrations, and other special moments.
With these stories (which honestly feel like conversations with a good friend), Niequist provides delicious recipes like Blueberry Crisp, Basic Vinaigrette, Basic Risotto, Green Well Salad and Breakfast Cookies which are sure to please. While there are a number of vegan recipes, this isn’t a cookbook as much as it is an uplifting collection of stories. There are some wonderful recipes, but so much of the fun of Bread and Wine is reading about Niequist’s unwavering faith, and the celebrations of food that remind her of those she loves. This is a great read, and would make a wonderful gift for the foodies in your life.
