CF89 – Happy Chefs

CF89 – Happy Chefs

Show notes for episode 89:

Welcome to the Catholic Foodie, where food meets faith. I am your host Jeff Young and today we’re talking faith, family, and fun! I am very excited because I get to bring you an interview today. And it’s a special interview… with the chefs of our favorite local restaurant, Ristorante Del Porto here in Covington. I also want to recap my experience as a guest blogger at last week. I want to thank Danielle Bean and her crew at Faith & Family for the invitation.

We go a little bit over today, but that’s OK. You’re going to love the interview!

Sarah Reinhard joins us with for Mary in the kitchen. This week Sarah talks about her time in the kitchen with dogs underfoot, and she reminds us to go Mary when we’re pushed to our limits. That’s a message that I need to hear.

I’m not giving you a recipe this week, and I’ll tell you why…

Right here at the Catholic Foodie, where food meets faith!



Lord Jesus, the readings from today’s Mass speak forcefully about the love you have for the poor. Help us, Lord to be more attentive to the poor and their plight. Grant us the grace to see you in the poor and to reach out to you in charity. Lord Jesus, may we also come to see very clearly the poor in our own family; those who are in want of love and attention, of encouragement and support. Bless us, Lord, and make us true disciples, eager to follow you wholeheartedly. Bless this food we are about to receive, and bless those who go without today. Amen.

Amos 8:4-7 / Psalm 113 / 1 Tim. 2: 1-8 / Luke 16: 1-13

Soup Kitchens / Cooking for the Poor / The Lord takes care of the poor

Reflections on the Prayer for Today:

  • Point of it all: That we may live lives of tranquility in all devotion and dignity.
  • Soup Kitchens – Often the Lord feeds the poor through us, and (guess what!) we are the poor being served a meal in God’s soup kitchen!
  • Tithing & the Poor Box – Our responsibility
  • If you have a story about God’s providence and how you have seen him take care of the poor (or your own family), please share it with me (985-635-4974)
  • Shout out to Jason Lopez!
