This book explores the spirituality of cooking. The simple yet profound task of baking bread has been a ritual in the life of Jesuit communities around the world for centuries. As Jesuit brother, actor, teacher, and master baker Rick Curry points out, the 80 recipes in this collection were passed on from one generation to the next. There is an art to breadmaking and an elegant rigor in the use of bowl, spoon, measuring cup, oven, and baking pan. Brother Rick kisses the ties of his apron as he slips it over his neck, dedicating his work in the kitchen to the Lord. You'll say a word of thanks yourself as you peruse these recipes for cornbread, muffins, rolls, sourdough bread, and much more.
