Host of the PBS Cooking Show: "Breaking Bread with Father Dominic"

"The most admirable quality of this book is that it requires you to respond. Whether you are a Christian or not, the truths Father Dominic addresses will resonate.  You will ask yourself questions, and you will be inspired to find answers.

-Hsiao-Ching Chou, "Seattle Post-Intelligencer" Food Writer

"If bread is the staff of life, then Father Dominic Garramone is the Shepherd.  Using bread as both method and metaphor, his words bring us food for the body and the soul.  Now I know why the simple act of combining flour, water, salt and yeast is so satisfying.  Consume this book and be blessed.

-Pam Henderson, Food Editor for "Farm Journal", and frequent contributor to "Midwest Living"

"Even the last question of this genuinely unique book leads me to praise God for Father Dominic. O.S.B., the bread baker.  I'll be thankfully wondering every time the 'staff of life' satisfies my taste if I'm allowing the leaven of the gospel to ferment.  May we eat on to His glory!"

-Archabbot Lambert Reilly, O.S.B., Saint Meinrad Archabbey
