It was an absolute pleasure to read and review this book for the July 1-14, 2016 print edition of the National Catholic Reporter. After all, it’s about three of my favorite things, plus it’s authored by one of my favorite CTU professors, Antonio Sison, CPPS. It’s a trifecta of food, theology, and film that is sure to please your palate. Click the image below for the full review. Mangia!

Sounds like a great book, Susan. Thanks for all the movie recommendations mentioned in the post/article, too! I seldom get to watch ‘foreign’ movies here as they are all subtitled in Japanese (beyond my skills, alas!) . . . but I’ll look them up when I’m next in a non-Asian context. Thanks!

It’s such a rich book, and having enjoyed your picturesque word smithing, Kate, I think you would relish (pun intended) Sison’s writing style. Some of these films can be found on http://www.vudu.com, with English subtitles, maybe you can check it out.
Cheers! I’ll give that link a try. Good to know…nice timing, too, for the weekend!
