Food... From the Earthly to the Spiritual
by Valérie Deschênes

The ability to feed oneself was the first motivation for men to work. Since the beginning of time, nuns and abbots have cultivated the land, gathered fruits and vegetables, brewed beer, cooked soups and baked confections to feed the community and to assure economic independence, but also to conserve a connection with the outside world. A walk in the France of abbeys and monasteries given rhythm by work and meditation.
