The Catholic Foodie was mentioned in the National Catholic Register!
My friend Sarah A. Reinhard published this awesome article over the weekend in the National Catholic Register. Sarah is one of my favorite people. She ROCKS! I love everything that she had to say in the article, but the following brought a BIG smile to my face:
"When I was testing the book out (though not, ahem, by actually cooking anything out of it…yet), I found that, glory of glories, it would lay flat on my counter, on my bed, on my couch: I could actually USE it in the kitchen! It’s magazine-sized, too, so those of us in denial about the state of our vision have hope of using it and getting the measurements right.
"And if I know Jeff Young, that’s what he had in mind. He poured a lot of his heart and passion into this cookbook, and it shows. But the reason he did it, the driving force, is so that we would get off our couches and away from the takeout order line.”
THANK YOU, SARAH!

“The ‘Catholicity’ of the site is not explicit—there are no holy pictures or prayers on the homepage! Rather, Jeff Young has integrated the Catholic aspects into his posts and recipes. For example, a post about Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and the Memorare fits seamlessly between posts about hatch chile chicken tortilla soup and Lebanese hummus and home-made pita bread.” LOVE this review! See the whole enchilada here: http://catholicfoodie.com/the-catholic-foodie-integrates-catholic-aspects-into-posts-and-recipes

Neat article in the Times-Picayune about one of my co-hosts on the Around the Table Food Show... Msgr. Christopher Nalty. "Cooking, for us in Louisiana, surrounds the family..."

Sunday’s Mass readings were all about feeding and being fed. From Elisha’s multiplying food and feeding 100 people in the Second Book of Kings to Jesus feeding the 5000 in the Gospel of John, we are reminded – as the Responsorial Psalm tells us – that “the hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs.” Get the scoop here: http://catholicfoodie.com/feeding-the-multitude-or-just-your-neighbor-parts-1-and-2

Technical difficulties, Monday morning foggy-headedness, and simply having too many things on my plate, make this one of the most challenging shows that I have done. Still, I think that the love of God and the goodness of pizza still shine through.

The second half of the show contains excerpts from an interview I did a couple of years ago with my friend Andris Lagsdin, the founder and creator of the Baking Steel. Lots of good info – and good stories – here, folks, for those of you who love to eat good pizza, and for those who like to make good pizzas at home.

About a month ago, my wife and I had the opportunity for a date night. Those don’t come around too, too often. But it did that night. It was a Wednesday, and the kids had a youth group event. We were in the mood for Pho and decided tried a new Vietnamese restaurant in Covington called Pho V & V. It’s been around for a while, so it wasn’t really new… just new to us. Looking over the menu, something caught my eye... Salty Lemonade. I had never noticed it on any other menu. Intrigued, I ordered. Wow! This is an amazingly tasty and refreshing beverage. ‪#‎Recipe‬ here: http://catholicfoodie.com/vietnamese-preserved-lemons-chanh-muoi-and-salty-lemonade-garden-betty

The Catholic Foodie... Where food meets faith!
Introduction
The Catholic Foodie brings much more to the table than merely recipes and reviews. The show highlights how food - good food - can be a sign to us of God’s love and care for each of us and our families. The tagline, "where food meets faith," speaks volumes about the importance of family, which is so often developed around the kitchen table.
