Prepare ye the way. And the Feast.

Advent CountdownAdvent calls us to a time of preparation and hope as we await the birth of the Christ Child. One tangible expression of this call is planning, cooking, and sharing a meal or special dish that brings sustenance and comfort to others and to ourselves. The importance of providing food for both body and soul is found throughout the Bible. Coming to the table – in whatever condition or station of life – is essential to many faith traditions.

Throughout Advent, we’ll highlight a recipe a day to help you in your preparation and sharing of the season. This blog will feature recipes offered by members and friends of The Episcopal Church from around the world – Turkey Gumbo and Chicken & Sausage Jambalaya from Louisiana, Roast Buffalo from First Nations’ Kitchen in Minnesota, Buckeye Candy from Ohio, Fried Pork and Plantains from Haiti, Coffee Cake and Leek & Potato Pie from New York, Pralines from Savannah, and many more. Prepare to cook and eat well this Advent season!

Once the holidays are over, we’ll add recipes and stories to the blog throughout the year, hoping to make it your go-to source for great food.

Taste and see that the Lord is good; happy are those who take refuge in him. ~ Psalm 34:8

Coming November 20: Stir up a traditional Christmas pudding
