• Looks at the connections between our bodies and our spiritual lives and the importance of proper nurture of both 
• Reflects on our attitudes to the food we buy and eat 
• Offers thoughts on the place of fasting in one’s spiritual journey 
• Encourages us to be more alert to issues of welfare and climate change as part of our Lenten discipline 

As Lent approaches you may be wondering how best to mark it. Traditionally a period of abstinence, should we deny ourselves luxuries such as chocolate or alcohol? Or should we do something positive, and if so what? How best can we nurture our bodies and souls through this important period in the year? In this new and original book, Christina Rees takes us on a spiritual and culinary exploration of the Christian traditions around fasting and feasting in Lent and Easter. Divided into sections for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Christina examines the significance of each and includes recipes for quick but satisfying meals through the forty days of Lent, leading up to an Easter feast to savour, rich in symbolism and style. A cookery book with spiritual wisdom thrown in, Feast + Fast offers simple and delicious food for thought this Lent.
