Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist



  Bread and Wine is a collection of vignettes from the author's, Shaunna Niequest, life experiences.  Each chapter shares her thoughts and stories and ends with a recipe.  The recipes connect you with the author's life.

Shauna Niequest has a way of gathering you around her table through her essays in Bread and Wine.  I felt like I was sitting down with her, sharing life as I read the book.  Her stories are uniquely personal to her life, but they had threads of my own life that drew me into the conversation.  She shares her struggles, her joys, and her unique view of life.

Each chapter ends with a recipe.  I am not much of a cook.  I am more of a "food arranger."  Even I was drawn into buying a bag of quinoa and some ground almond flower to try out the recipes in this book.  This is a great book to read and also a great book to give to someone you know who you enjoys food and sharing stories.  I highly recommend it.
