Food nourishes our souls and plays a vital role in both religious ceremonies and secular celebrations. Elisabeth Luard reveals why we bury eggs in bread loves at Easter, bob for apples at Halloween, eat sweet things while courting, and make circular breads and sugared skulls at times of death and mourning. She examines the culinary instincts that unite and divide cultures and studies those foods that have universal significance, such as seeds, eggs, and grain proclaiming new life and hope.

But Ms Luard doesn't claim that as her purpose. She states right up front that her book is a "far from comprehensive glance" at religious rituals and how they involve food. One person found this helpful.

Food nourishes our souls and is a vital part of our religious ceremonies and secular celebrations. Sacred Food explores the dishes that are traditionally served at significant moments in human life—birth, puberty, courtship, betrothal and marriage, death, burial, and remembrance—and explains why and how we celebrate with food. More than 40 recipes include pan de muertos, prepared for the Mexican Day of the Dead; piroshki from Slovakia, to celebrate the birth of a baby; cassava with chili and peanuts, to mark an African girl’s coming-of-age; and the honey cake, prepared for a Turkish wedding feast. One hundred stunning images bring to life a wealth of recipes and myriad cultures including those of Mexico, Japan, Spain, Italy, Indonesia, North America, the Middle East, Germany, Scandinavia, and Britain.

I thought this was a lovely book. Just be aware of what you are buying. It's not a cookbook, really. It's more like an anthropology book with recipes. And you aren't going to get a detailed look at every menu served at every ritual observed by every religion. But Ms Luard doesn't claim that as her purpose. She states right up front that her book is a "far from comprehensive glance" at religious rituals and how they involve food. I doubt that I will be using this as a cookbook but I didn't expect to. I will be keeping it and I recommend it.

I got this book as a requirment for my class. There are only 3 chapters in this book. I felt like it just dragged on and on. It really needed to have more breaks. It had very interesting topics about food and rituals, but it wasn't a very smooth read. It bored me. The pictures are great and I like how it includes some recipes, but this book won't be living on my shelf any longer.

Thank God I didn't purchase this book. Firstly, the concept for this book is a great one, which is why it is so unfortunate that this author did such bad job with it. I was interested in this book when, as I was preparing for the new year, I had the idea to prepare a spiritually nourishing new year's first meal. So I sought out this book for ideas. The organization of the book is flawed to begin with - grouping up wildly different cultures together under 4 categories. Although these are very important categories, the author betrays her cultural ignorance by this very approach. Her attitude and tone is typically patronizing, paternalistic and fetishizing of foreign cultures as if they all amount to these quaint folksy little traditions. She does this especially when she is referencing a culture from the so-called "third world". Her treatment of Africa is downright racist with its broad generalizations and crass, cursory, under-researched fair. I should have known that it would be from the very description listed on this site - amazon.com. In the amazon.com description, it references meals from Mexico, Slovakia and then refers to a meal used in an "African girl's" coming of age ceremony. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Africa is not one country with one tradition but a whole continent of 54 countries (and counting) with HUNDREDS of ethnic groups and THOUSANDS of traditions. Her inclusion of Africa seemed to be more or less out of obligation or perhaps pressure from her wanna-be politically-correct publisher. All in all, if you have any self-respect at all, avoid this book at all costs. Don't patronize ignorance!
