So tie on your apron for an experience that welcomes you into Vatican life while you feast on exceptional foods ranging from the simple to the sublime. 

From the Pope's table to yours: Buon Appetito!

The Vatican Cookbook (Recipes) and Apron.

Review: The Vatican Cookbook is full of marvelous recipes and I wanted to cook a beef recipe which I found in the first few pages. Unfortunately Walmart Canada did not have a tenderloin cut (1.2 Kilogram) of beef which I required for the recipe. Thank you very much for this collection of recipes from the Swiss Pontifical Guard.

Vatican Cookbook and Apron

Review: Fantastic! The recipes are easy to read and looks like they will be uncomplicated to make. The apron is neat. I got one for myself and one for my sister. She loved it. She really liked the apron. I especially liked the 3 sections devoted to the country of 2 former Popes and Pope Francis. It's filled with other things besides the recipes, fantastic pictures and some history.
