Publishers Text

Food nourishes our souls and is a vital part of our religious ceremonies and secular celebrations. Sacred Food explores the dishes that are traditionally served at significant moments in human life-birth, puberty, courtship, betrothal and marriage, death, burial, and remembrance-and unravels why and how we celebrate with food. More than 40 recipes include pan de muertos, prepared for the Mexican Day of the Dead; piroshki from Slovakia, to celebrate the birth of a baby; cassava with chili and peanuts, to mark an African girl's coming-of-age; and the honey cake, prepared for a Turkish wedding feast. One hundred stunning images bring to life a wealth of recipes and myriad cultures including those of Mexico, Japan, Spain, Italy, Indonesia, North America, the Middle East, Germany, Scandinavia, and Britain.
