A very funny and very entertaining read!
"John and Denise, a long-time Catholic journalist and a trained Continental chef, have done it again. They've ransacked 20 centuries, 5 continents, and their own disturbed imaginations to uncover the fun in faith - and dozens of delicious recipes for dinner, cocktails, and party punch. It's educational - and intoxicating!"
- Angelo Matera, publisher/editor, Godspy.com, and former CEO, the National Catholic Register.
This book views Catholic life from a unique perspective: through a shot glass darkly. Ask anyone the question — “What is the difference between “whisky” and “whiskey’” And you will learn more about them than if you ask them about their favorite politician. Starting with the wines, beers, liquors and liqueurs made around the world by monks, the authors serve up a lot of facts, then add chasers of drinking games, food, and drinking songs, and cocktail recipes from past and present. This A-Z dictionary of alcohol serves at once as a bartender's guide, a party planner, and a screwball catechism.
