Our Lady of the Resurrection Monastery: La Grangeville, New York

Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourrette and other monks established Our Lady of the Resurrection Monastery in 1977. The community is a spiritual family whose life is based on the Gospel and the Rule of Saint Benedict, and is particularly inspired by the early monastic tradition received both from the East and the West. Ecumenical dialogue, especially with the Eastern Orthodox tradition, is of special interest to the monastery. Both Gregorian chant and Russian monastic chant are employed in the monastic offices.

Brother Victor is the author of six cookbooks including the best-selling Twelve Months of Monastery Soups and From a Monastery Kitchen, and serves the monastery as cook and gardener, tending the two gardens and greenhouse that provide the produce and herbs for the monastery. The monastery is supported by sales of books and the consumable items made from organic ingredients grown there: dried herbs, herbal teas, pesto sauce, tapenade, chutney, jams, tomato sauce, apple sauce and apple butter, salsas, and relish. The monastery also sponsors a monastic land conservation program that attracts several students each year from the surrounding colleges and universities.

Enticing variety of soups and they have certainly increased the types and frequency in which I cook them. Most are very healthy and taste spectacularly delicious!

I made St. Lucy Soup Sicilian Style that has simple instructions and ingredients, and turned out hearty, savory, and delicious. We enjoyed it on a cold Decmber day. I will choose at least one recipe a month to prepare throughout the year. Love the monthly layout!

My husband and I have enjoyed every recipe we've tried from this cookbook. I have also used Brother Victor's methods on some other soups I've been making for years with improved results. Thank you for this cookbook!

I have gone through the book and marked the pages of the recipes that I plan to try. I have not tried any yet. There are many to choose from. It is an easy-to-read book.
