By Francis Foucachon, with new foreward by Douglas Wilson
FOOD FOR THOUGHT represents a lifetime of reflection on the place of food in the Christian life. For pastor and chef Francis Foucachon, food is not just fuel for our bodies-it is about community and family relationships, it is about beauty and flavors, it is about God-given pleasure and art. In Food for Thought, Francis also shares a collection of delicious personal recipes and sage counsel for readers considering the restaurant business.
Francis has a trio of passions--his faith, his family, and his food. He was trained to become a chef in the elite world of gastronomy in Lyon, France before being trained as a minister of the Gospel at the Reformed Seminary in Aix-en-Provence. He worked as a chef in France and Switzerland, and later created his own high-end restaurant in the USA. He was ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America in 1987, and ministered as a church planter in France and in Quebec for 24 years. Francis now works with Huguenot Heritage in partnership with Third Millennium Ministries. He and his wife Donna have five children
