My guest this Saturday is cookbook author Kitty Morse. We'll be discussing her new book,  A Biblical Feast: Ancient Mediterranea Flavors for Today's Table.

A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive and honey. DEUTERONOMY 8:8 Herb-coated goat cheese, pungent garlic and leeks, succulent lamb, fresh sardines, tender fava beans, honey sweet dates, crunchy pistachios and almonds...Although we usually think of the ancient Hebrews and early Christians eating only manna from heaven and the oft quoted loaves and fishes, the Bible tells us that a cornucopia of delicious foods sustained the inhabitants of the Jordan River Valley. Many ingredients like lentils, leeks, garlic, almonds, figs, olives, wine, barley, and honey remain staples of the contemporary Mediterranean kitchen, yet we know little about their rich legacy. A Biblical Feast: Ancient Mediterranean Flavors for Today s Table is inspired by the 84 primary foodstuffs mentioned in Scriptures.
