Mix of sociology, psychology, theology and recipes to boot!
Author Simon Carey Holt takes us from the kitchen table of his childhood, down the café-lined alleyways of Melbourne, into a suburban backyard in Footscray, back to the white-linen tables of Jacques Reymond, through the working kitchens of a chef, around our tables that celebrate life and death, to the tables that express our culture and history and finally to the communion table. The book is part anecdote, part interview, part history lesson and part academic analysis of sociology, psychology and theology. Plus it gives you a great recipe at the end of each chapter. What more could you want in a book?
The book is so personal, so Melbourne, so full of interesting information and so thoughtful in the conclusions drawn. It is great and well worth the investment of your time to read it.
