Publisher's Summary

As a follow up to her two best-selling books, Bittersweet and Cold Tangerines, author and blogger Shauna Niequist returns with the perfect listen for those who love food and value the community and connection of family and friends around the table.

Bread & Wine is a collection of essays about family relationships, friendships, and the meals that bring us together. This mix of Anne Lamott and Barefoot Contessa is a funny, honest, and vulnerable spiritual memoir. Bread & Wine is a celebration of food shared, reminding listeners of the joy found in a life around the table. It’s about the ways God teaches and nourishes people as they nourish the people around them. It’s about hunger, both physical and otherwise, and the connections between the two.

With wonderful recipes included, from Bacon-Wrapped Dates to Mango Chicken Curry to Blueberry Crisp, listeners will be able to recreate the comforting and satisfying meals that come to life in Bread & Wine.

Fantastic!

Hospitality and The table have never sounded so good. I love this book. It's a food and life adventure peppered with wisdom and important truths. We can love each other and savor life around the table.

LOVED IT!

I love her simple yet profound style of writing! I could personally relate to so many of her stories and struggles as if she was writing about me. The one huge difference being that i have been ashamed to cook for people becuase i dont feel good enough at it. So my husband cooks and I decorate and clean up. Shauna and this book have really inspired me to cook what I like, start simple as long as its done with Love, making our table a sacred space to gather- thats all that matters, and so im already inspired to host asap! Thank you!!

Life, Love, & Recipes

If you want to know what this book is about just read the title. It is exactly as it says. I have recommended this book to everyone I talk to. I am beyond grateful that a friend of mine recommended this to me. I love to cook, bake and be in the kitchen on a 24/7 basis. She was able to articulate the feelings that I get when I'm in my kitchen. She accurately expressed the importance of cooking and why life should be done around the table. Also, this audible comes with the pdf cookbook, so don't worry you will get every recipe she talks about. Enjoy!

Beautifully read

Shauna will make you feel like you’re right beside her in the kitchen and alongside her through pain and joy. Definitely will read this again.

Touching stories

I have enjoyed listening to Shauna's new podcast, and decided to "hear" her book. I caught myself smiling, laughing, and even shedding a tear at times. Her book is a wonderful compilation of short stories about normal, messy life...and food!

So. Very. Good.

Sometimes I had to stop between chapters to let the beautiful story sink in. I felt as if I was listening to a friend tell her life story.
