  • Cookbook from the Pontifical Swiss Guard
  • Exceptional recipes from the simple to the sublime
  • Unique and beautiful
  • Perfect gift idea--especially for Mom!

The Pontifical Swiss Guard presents a book like no other. From the elite protectors of the Popes and Defenders of the Faith for more than five hundred years, a unique collection of exceptional recipes from simple to sublime, everyday staples to holiday feasts. Here are the classics served at Vatican tables for centuries and the finest of modern cuisine.

Best of all, we pay tribute to Pope Francis, Pope Benedict XVI and Holy Pope John Paul II with their personal favorite dishes from their homelands of Argentina, Bavaria, and Poland.

A marvelous cookbook and so much more: The Vatican Cookbook features superb photographs that take us behind the scenes to secret and special places of Vatican City. Walk the hallowed halls of St. Peter’s, the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel. Enjoy the stories and legends of the Swiss Guard handed down since the days of Michelangelo.

For all who love to cook and share meals with family and friends, and for all who are fascinated by the wonders and the grandeur of the Vatican, the Swiss Guard is pleased to offer you . . . The Vatican  Cookbook.

    The Vatican Cookbook

    I gave this as a birthday to my friend and she loves it! She carries it with her to show people. The photography is breathtaking. One of her friends said she felt she was there in the photo. Recipes are superb. My friend is a great Italian cook and she has already decided the first recipe she is going to try. She said they are simple recipes and look delicious.

    Vatican Cookbook

    I bought a copy for my best friend and one for myself. She loves her copy. I have enjoyed the recipes I have tried,(one of my new favorite dinners comes from there), but I also love just paging through and reading the notes and looking at the pictures. It offers an amazing peek into life at the Vatican.

    Vatican Cookbook

    This is a lovely book with rich histories and beautiful illustrations. The recipes are practical and not too difficult, some simpler than others. I bought two as gifts and then went back and bought one for myself and I just love it!

    Phenomenal Cookbook

    This is not only a great cookbook, it is also a treasure of information and history about the Swiss Guard at the Vatican. This cookbook is also perfect as a coffee table book. The recipes are extremely easy to follow and it is fun making dinners that our gracious Popes have also enjoyed. This is an excellent cookbook and would make an even greater gift to anyone interested in the Vatican and cooking great meals.
