  • Robert Farrar Capon is well known as the author of the modern classic The Supper of the Lamb and other acclaimed books such as Genesis, the Movie. In Light Theology & Heavy Cream: The Culinary Adventures of Pietro & Madeleine, Capon returns to the kitchen to present a spirited collection of pieces he describes as "culinary and theological snack food." The protagonists of this endeavor are Pietro and Madeleine, a husband and wife with clear resemblances to the author and his wife, Valerie. With Capon's signature wit and precision, Pietro and Madeleine explore such diverse topics as creativity, addiction, televangelism, spirituality, the correct way to slice a leg of lamb, and the virtues of diners. "Given the irony of a God who saves the world by foolishness and weakness," Capon writes, "and the hilarity by which he gives us corn, wine, and oil--not to mention his wonderfully two-faced creatures such as butter, salt, tobacco, and pork fat--this is no world in which to land on one side of a paradox."
