An engaging introduction to major world religions
through their associations with food!


Food has always been central to religious practice. From fasting at Ramadan to feasting at Diwali, from the laws of kashrut to the taking of Holy Communion, a great deal can be learned about a religion through an understanding of its link with food.

Six children from six religions tell their stories through words and photographs. The text is in the first person with each child speaking directly to the reader, making an engaging and visually appealing introduction to this important aspect of religion. Vivid photohraphs bring to life stories of individual children.

The book covers six major religions—Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Buddhism — and looks at celebrations, rules, food and drink in rituals, fasting and recipes. All the children featured are from the respective religions and cultural background.
