We’re so proud!  Final result the 21st October. Can’t wait for it!

A BIOGRAPHY UNDER A NEW PERSPECTIVE

“Enjoy your meal!” These are the words with which Pope Francis greets the worshippers in his speeches. Few knows the deeper meaning: before becoming Pope, he graduated in Food Chemistry and inherited the passion for food from his mother, grandmother and relatives who owned a restaurant in Piedmont, Italy.
In this book (208 pages, large format, with great photos) you’ll discover the milestones of the Pope’s life and the dishes related to this main events: you can replicate them at home following the original recipes in the book. A volume that gives a new perspective on the beloved, charismatic figure of Pope Francis, recounted by the Pope’s biographer, Roberto Alborghetti. The volume contains 36 special and illustrated recipes inspired to the life of Pope.
