Item description for From a Monastery Kitchen by Victor D'Avila-Latourrette...

When first published over twenty years ago, FROM A MONASTERY KITCHEN became an instant classic of monastic cookery, admired over the centuries for its emphasis on simplicity, wholesomeness, good taste, and its use of Nature's seasons as a source for many ingredients.
Now newly revised and expanded, Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourrette, author of the best seller, Twelve Months of Monastery Soups, has developed more outstanding recipes that will appeal to all those who desire a healthy, all-natural, and always delicious diet.
Enhancing the pleasure of the recipes themselves are charming words and quotes that make this book a treasure for both palate and spirit.
"For this monk, preparing food is prayer."

Reviews - What do customers think about From a Monastery Kitchen?

Not for those who don't do dairy  Aug 8, 2007
Nearly all of the recipes in this book include milk in some form or another. As a person who cannot consume milk, this book is of little utility.
Easy and Healthy!  Sep 26, 2005
I really couldn't imagine what would be in this cookbook, but was delighted to find everything easy, delicious, and so healthful. The simple and seasonal recipies call for everything available to the city dweller, and are arranged by the seasons, with beautiful passages that make this cook book a joy to use.
Yum yum yum!  Feb 5, 2004
Variety, simplicity and the lovely stories that go with many of the recipies make this book a wonderful addition as well as a wonderful gift. These soups are great by themselves, and they are also easy to modify- add a little here, a little there to make them all time favorites! I highly recommend this book for the experienced and not so experienced cook.
Delicious recipes for a simple life  Aug 19, 2000
From a Monastery Kitchen is a cookbook of natural foods, "natural foods" in the sense of simple, vegetarian foods. The cookbook is divided into the four seasons with recipes assigned to the season their ingrediants are most available. Within each season, there are four sections: (1) Soups and appetizers (2) Main dishes (3) Salads and (4) Desserts. The volume is peppered with quotations, line drawings and other delightful tidbits.

To give you a flavor of the variety of recipes presented: for Autumn we have Escarole Soup, Vegetable Fritters, Saint Hubert Fish Stew, Risotto, Eggplant Omelette, Kasha Salad, Bessarian Avocado Salad, Saint Bruno's Coffee Cream, Cold Spring Rice Pudding, Quick Apple Cake. The recipes are simple to follow, simple to make, and simply wonderful to eat.

I am inspired by the monks' dedication to preserving the simple way of life, and challenged to find my own solitude within these recipies. My family is excited to sample new fare, and will be blessed by the healthy benefits from vegetarian monastic cooking.
