When From A Monastery Kitchen was first published over thirty years ago, it instantly became a classic guide to monastic cooking methods: using readily available natural ingredients and avoiding boredom and wastefulness by converting leftovers into seemingly different dishes.

Enhanced by insightful quotations and charming woodcut illustrations, From a Monastery Kitchen is a treasure for both palate and spirit that, like the "monastic ingenuity" it teaches, has stood the test of time.

Monastic cookery, as it has been practiced through the centuries, is cherished for its emphasis on simplicity, wholesome frugality, basic good taste, and the seasonal rhythms of the ingredients. Monastic kitchens strive for a healthy and balanced diet. The human body is the temple of God, and its dietary needs must be respected.

Brother Victor- Antoine is a resident monk at Our Lady of the Resurrection Monastery, which lives under the Rule of Saint Benedict. He is the author of several books from Liguori Publications, including best-seller From a Monastery Kitchen, Sacred Feasts, and The Gift of Simplicity.
