Keeping the Feast began as an occasional feature for The Monitor about eight years back. Now, I’m happy to say, Keeping the Feast is an ongoing work in progress in blog form.
The aim is to make it a showcase for beloved recipes from right here at home and far beyond all served up with stories about the rich banquet of customs and traditions they reflect.
Expect not only global but local with a focus on faith, family and food in the four counties of the Trenton Diocese – Monmouth, Mercer, Ocean and Burlington – and 111 parishes.
Look for information on regional ingredients — the diocese is, afterall, home to some of the finest produce and seafood on the East Coast.
Expect treasured family recipes from neighbors, friends and folks you meet at church and stories to go with them and occasional reviews on cookbooks and books on Catholic culture and traditions.
Links to other sites are in the works.
Comments are definitely welcome. So are favorite family recipes.
