Gathering at the Table by Elizabeth Hoffman Reed
Paperback: 44 pages
Of cookbooks there are a multitude. Though this book has three recipes, it is no cookbook. It is an invitation-to-cook book - and more.
Elizabeth Hoffman Reed has written a simple praise of dining, a call to go to the market and to the stove and to the table . But this invitation is also a challenge: Do you love your food as you could? Her brief reflections are interspersed with wonderful and varied quotations. From all directions come insights and delight about food and dining.
If we know that we and our church live from bread and wine placed on our Sunday table, blessed and shared, what must we do about all the other tables of our lives?
