Present Pope Prizes Pizza.
The Vatican Cookbook is the LA Times’ “Cookbook of the Week.” Amy Scattergood says “it’s all kind of lovely, whether your devotion extends to God or to tiramisu, or maybe to both.” What I like about the cookbook is that it shows us that Popes are just like us! They love DeathbedFood.
I had only one wish, what would it be? The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza. ~ Pope Francis, 2015
DeathbedFood for Pope Francis is pizza. Pizza with mushrooms, onions and zucchini.
POPE BENEDICT XVI
Pope Benedict XVI would choose a dessert from his homeland Bavaria: Kirschmichel, a custard layered with bread slices and cherries. He would probably also go to his favorite restaurant in Rome, Cantina Tirolese.
POPE JOHN PAUL II
Pope John Paul II worships a classic dish from his homeland of Poland: Pierogi.
Though learning about the favorite foods of Popes is entertaining, this book’s biggest impact comes from its reference to Pope Francis’ support for the “One Human Family, Food For All” campaign to end world hunger by 2025. That this cookbook has the power to increase awareness about world hunger makes it an important one.
