Love love loved this. Robert Farrar Capon is the foodie Frederick Beuchner. His writing is as delicious as the recipes he endorses and he spurs me on to look at entertaining as a sacrament of the New Jerusalem. Hospitality embodies faith, hope, and love.

If you can track down this older gem, it is worth it. His chapter on "Plain Fancies" is worth it alone.

Prosit!

Such a great book, I enjoyed it very much. Looking forward to try many of the recipes in there.

This was a Christmas gift from my friend Wendy Sensing.
