Feast Day Cookbook
Two well-known writers here join forces to describe the special and traditional Catholic feast day dishes of many lands. Whereas the the variety in Christmas, New Year, and Easter observances is known, less familiar are the special foods for "Mothering Sunday," "Maundy Thursday," "Lamas Day." Few know that the origin of the veal cutlet is attributed to St. Ambrose, who thus prepared the meat he gave to the poor; that the favorite sweetmeat of St. Francis of Assisi was Frangipane; or that in Italy a cake called "Sphinx" is traditionally served on St. Joseph's Day. We learn the forgotten origin of many well-known dishes, and the family is provided with numerous recipes to restore these wonderful traditional customs. With a table of movable feasts.
