5.0 out of 5 stars Christian Cooking Inspiration! Feb. 7 2003
Format:Hardcover
Cooking with the Saints, by Ernst Schuegraf, is a magnificent volume of cooking inspiration for Catholics. This full-color hard-cover book is so elegant, I hated to drop batter on the beautifully designed pages! At 330 pages, this heavy volume covers recipes for saints from Agnes to Wilfrid. The recipes have been meticulously culled from many nations, traditions, and time periods, to arrive to us in one complete book.
The recipes have conversions for United States and European cooks. Each recipe features a short biography of it's namesake saint, as well as full-color photograph. The recipes are diverse and include: Stuffed Peppers in Walnut Sauce, Soup for Saint Francis Xavier's Day, Melachrino Cake, Saint Margaret's Lebkuchen, Saint Martin's Day Duck, Saint Roch's Fingers, and Saint Theresa's Bread.
The 3-page Introduction by Schuegraf tells us the story of his inspiration. He discusses some of the differences cooking and baking has undergone, and tells us that he has done his best to retain the recipes as they were found. Some of the recipes are pulled from antique cookbooks, and many others were carefully researched at St. Francis Xavier Library.
Saint Barbara, pages 33 - 36, is a prime example of the quality of work put into this book. The biography of Saint Barbara encompasses what is known of her life from the third century, a thirteenth-century book about her, and even legends about her father. Page 33 features a beautiful fifteenth century painting of her by Jan Van Eyck. The author attributes three recipes to Saint Barbara's name: Saint Barbara Cake, Pork Tenderloin Saint Barbara, and Dessert for Saint Barbara's Day.
I prepared the Saint Barbara Cake in my kitchen at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired to Cook! Aug. 15 2001
Format:Hardcover
This is truly a most unique cookbook! For centuries -indeed throughout the millennium -saints have inspired our beliefs, nurtured our faith, and now in this book promise to nourish us as well. Journey with Ernst Schuegraf into the very heart and soul of an emerging western culture as he delivers the culmination of his research and travels in "far away places with strange-sounding names". Ernst masterfully leads you through historic archives, medieval cathedrals, ancient monasteries, rare private collections, news-clippings and books that were yellowed and brittle with age. Who was the saint who inspired Ernst to dedicate so much commitment and passion to seeking out the recipes that you will enjoy this tremendous book? Cooking With the Saints features over one hundred seventy recipes and seventy-three mini-biographies of the saints, and are accompanied by beautiful color photographs. Each recipe has been prepared by Ernst himself, then tested and tasted by family and appreciative friends. Whether you plan for a simple but delicious home meal, a tasty dessert, or an exotic banquet, this is the book that will truly bless your cooking experience! Consider a feast of delicious St. Fortunatus Suckling Pig while enjoying an evening with the camaraderie of good friends and fine wine. Or perhaps Hildegard von Bingen may beckon you to the dining table? Enjoy Cooking With the Saints!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Catholic "Martha Stewart" Cookbook! Sept. 27 2001
Format:Hardcover
This book by Ernst Scheugraf is such a fabulous presentation! The book is large and heavy -- the glossy pages are chock full of mouthwatering recipes with matching colorful photos of the dishes and beautiful graphics of the saints with small biographies of each saint. All the dishes are related to saints--with the criteria that each dish must contain the saint's name.
The presentation is just beautiful. The book rivals Martha Stewart's books!
All the recipes are written with regular and metric measurements, with easy to follow directions. The recipes range from appetizers to main dishes to dessert -- and all levels of experience can find useful recipes.
I study and probably own all the books on the Catholic liturgical year in the domestic church (home) and this book I can really say is unique and worthwhile addition to my collection.
