Home cooks will be inspired to celebrate life Catholic-style through the recipes and wisdom about liturgical living in these books.

Since the beginning of Church history, when Christ turned water into wine and multiplied bread and fish to feed thousands, food has been an integral part of Christianity. 

Catholics know that feeding the body also feeds the soul. And Catholics love to enjoy God’s gifts, including mouthwatering meals!

Catholic writer Hilaire Belloc once wrote, “Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine, There’s always laughter and good red wine. At least I’ve always found it so. Benedicamus Domino!” 

This summer is the perfect time to appreciate laughter, good red wine, delicious food, and the “blessings without number” God sends. 

These 10 Catholic cookbooks are just the thing to inspire home cooks in liturgical living and celebrating like a Catholic.
