About The Book

  • Recipe book connecting the Bible with food
  • Contains vegetarian, kosher, Mediterranean, ketogenic, and other recipes
  • Includes Bible verses and commentary 

Eating the Bible is a new cookbook with recipes inspired by parts of the Bible. Author Rena Rossner was inspired to write it when one night, many years ago, someone served her a bowl of lentil soup. That week, she had heard the Bible story of Esau selling his birthright to his brother, Jacob, for a bowl of red lentil soup. Rossner wondered if she could bring others the connection to the Bible that she had felt through cooking. Every meal in Eating the Bible works towards that goal. 

Whether you are a beginner cook or an expert, Eating the Bible is for you. Jewish Bible stories are shared throughout the guide, especially in moments where any cook has to wait. Rossner uses the time spent waiting for water to boil to share Bible stories or commentary to make cooking a contemplative experience. These recipes create a tactile connection between the Bible and food. 

There are many biblically-based recipes in this cookbook, including: 
  • Cucumber and Melon Gazpacho
  • Babel Vegetable Towers
  • Pistachio Almond Chicken Parcels 
  • Technicolor Salad with Silky Avocado Dressing
  • Festive Golden Brisket
  • Fire and Ice Bruschetta 

From all of these dishes and more, each recipe is sure to taste delicious and make the chef think.
