Cooking with the Bible!

Have you ever wondered what Moses or Esau might have eaten?

It’s a question causing an Episcopal priest and a book publisher to create recipes based on foods appearing throughout the Bible.

A "Friendship Cake" recipe inspired by the bond between Ruth and Naomi in the book of Ruth, and "Locust Soup" inspired by John the Baptist’s wilderness diet from the book of Matthew.

Smithsonian’s “Food and Think” blogger, who reviewed the book, said the “goal of Cooking with the Bible is to show the important role of preparing and sharing food in these stories that have persisted through the ages.”

And did you know that when Museum of the Bible opens in 2017, it will include a roof-top restaurant with cuisine featuring foods of the Bible? But no "Locust Soup"—promise!
Engage with the Bible—in all its traditions through the ages!
