Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist is a love letter to life around the table with recipes. This book is to be an encouragement to the reader to invite those that you love into your home for a meal or celebration around the table. This book invites the reader to not just read about entertaining others or just cooking a family meal but to actually break out the cookbooks and the ingredients and cook the meal for the others. She encourages the reader to start simple or start difficult but just to start—your friends just want to be with you.
I liked this book ok but I thought it could have been so much more interesting. This is not the writer’s first book so I expected more from her. It seems to be a book of her life and a very few recipes that she commonly makes.
I was provided this book for this review from Handlebar.
