From the Pope’s
Table to Yours

From the elite protectors of the Popes and Defenders of the Faith for more than 500 years, a unique collection of exceptional recipes from simple to sublime, everyday staples to holiday feasts. Here are the classics served at Vatican tables for centuries and the best of modern Roman cuisine.

Best of all, we pay tribute to Pope Francis, Pope Benedict XVI and Holy Pope John Paul II with their personal favorite dishes from their homelands of Argentina, Bavaria and Poland.
