To Buy This Book: Peace Meals
Peace Meals: A Book of Recipes for Cooking and Connecting
By: The Junior League of Houston, Inc.
I just received our copy of Peace Meals and my appetite is whetted from the pictures alone. Practical yet elegant, Peace Meals will be a wonderful addition to any cookbook collection; to be opened especially when preparing to entertain friends and family. As stated in the book’s jacket, “Peace Meals is a book for people who possess (or want to) a gift for cultivating those all too rare moments of human connection, and know that the table is a good place to start. It is a book about food that feeds spirits as well as bodies. In the largest sense, Peace Meals is a book about Life- in all of its color, variety and splendid chaos.”
Divided into Menus and Recipes, much is covered to include Breakfast and Brunch, Appetizers and Cocktails, Soups, Sandwiches and More, From the Garden, Pizzas and Pastas, From the Sea, Main Courses, Vegetables and Grains, Desserts and Treats, and an Appendix containing a variety of useful information. Sprinkled throughout the book are numerous cooking tips and entertaining ideas.
As we try out many of the recipes throughout this month, follow along or try out some of your choice, and let us know what you think!
