Ernst Schuegraf combines his unusual combination of skills in cooking, photography, fine arts and knowledge of saints' lives to present this unique cookbook that captures a wonderful variety of recipes and inspiring biographies of each saint.

This richly illustrated treasure of ancient and modern recipes from 21 countries celebrates the Catholic tradition of honoring saints with special meals and recipes on their feast days. Some 73 saints are depicted here with over 170 recipes that cover a broad spectrum of dishes that includes main courses, side dishes, soups, snacks, breads and desserts.

In addition to the wonderful recipes and stories of saints, this lavish cookbook is filled with color pictures of each dish, as well as each saint. It also offers a cooking glossary and four indices of recipes by name, saint, type and country.
