Review: 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.

Review: 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.

It drew me to it hoping for some great recipes

Phenomenal Cookbook

Review: 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.

Review: Beautiful book with pictures of each dish. Love that it has favorite recipes of Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict and Pope Frances and stories of the Swiss Guards. Have not tried any of the recipes yet. Some looks complicated and some have ingredients that the average grocery store may not carry. However, it is a keepsake book!!

A Perfect Gift

Review: This is a beautiful book, full of great recipes, art, and the color photographs are spectacular. You will learn a lot about the wonderful Swiss Guard (the book is published by the Pontifical Swiss Guard). And yes, at the end of all the delicious and elaborate recipes, it concludes with some prayers and a opportunity to provide food for the less fortunate. It is the world's most Catholic cookbook. I can think of about 20 people on my Christmas shopping list who would love this book for Christmas.
