The English edition will be published in hardcover this spring:
In addition to being the mouthpiece of God, it’s no secret that Pope Francis is a lover of food. After all, he once said the only thing he misses about his pre-papal lifestyle is being able to order a pizza in peace. His doctor also reportedly told him to lay off the pasta for his own health.But now you can eat like His Holiness without taking a trip to Rome, because the Vaticanhas released The Vatican Cookbook: Presented by the Pontifical Swiss Guard, an official Vatican cookbook that was originally published in 2014, but has been released for the first time in English.
The book will be available in hardcover on April 5, and is described as “500 years of classic recipes, papal tributes, and exclusive art and images of life at The Vatican.” The book specifically pays tribute to the last three popes: Pope Benedict XVI and Holy Pope John Paul II and of course, Pope Francis, who currently holds the papal office, but there are also older recipes from popes of centuries-past.
