:The Good Book Cookbook spans 3,000 years of Biblical and culinary history. The cuisine begins in the latter part of the Stone Age with the meal Abraham served the angels and concludes at the height of the Roman Empire with The Last Supper of Jesus. Many foods enjoyed today have their origins in the biblical period and others, while not standard American fare, are made from ingredients readily available in our markets.
“Wholesome, natural dishes were part of the Biblical diet. Honey and fruit syrups were traditional sweeteners (sugar wasn't available). Meals included whole grains, beans and vegetables, making them naturally high in fiber and low in saturated fat.
“Chapters are divided into traditional categories such as meat, fish, poultry, diary, fruits, vegetables and desserts. Biblical passages accompany recipes.”
