Perfect Mother’s Day Gift for a Catholic Mom

I received a truly beautiful book from Sophia Press last week and it brought Mother’s Day to mind right away. The imagery in the volume is gorgeous. And it promises to delight not only the eyes but also … the tastebuds.

The Vatican Cookbook is the perfect Mother’s Day gift for a Catholic mom, or any mom who not only enjoys wowing family or guests with a delightful dish but is also enchanted by beauty (and humans are made for beauty, so that’s all of us!)

Read what reviewer Sean Fitzpatrick has to say:

I suppose the only way to make this gift better for Mom would be for Dad to unwrap it first and set to work.

He could start with something simple, like a favorite of Pope Francis: Dulce de Leche.

Though only requiring five simple ingredients (to serve four)

there is a bit of preparation time to account for. But the final result sounds delicious:


A favorite recipe of Benedict’s provides a tasty way to use up old bread … appropriate for a pope who was concerned about ecological themes even before his successor brought such attention to them.

And Apple Kuchen, a favorite of the Polish pontiff-saint, looks like it could quickly become a family favorite.

The only downside to this book is … well, it’s a downside not to the book, but to my kitchen! It’s sure to get messy if I leave it on my counter, and for something so beautiful, that would be a shame.
