While the Chicken Soup franchise of books never quite satisfied me, this collection of essays serves up something truly rich—the hearty reflections, reminiscences, and recipes of 34 writers offering earthy wisdom and soulful insights along with wonderful treats for the palate. The authors, including some acclaimed writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, have in common the ability to articulate with warmth and power the spiritual importance of a common human experience. Their words constitute a sumptuous feast—and we all have to eat. (Wipf & Stock)
