Papal Cookbook

This April, a book chronicling the culinary adventures at the Vatican will be released. “The Vatican Cookbook” is “a tour of life and food in the world’s smallest country, as told by members of the Pontifical Swiss Guard.” Share this article with young adults and talk about the pope’s special dining experience.
