Reading Group: The Supper of the Lamb by Robert Farrar Capon


From a passionate and talented chef who also happens to be an Episcopalian priest comes this surprising and thought-provoking treatise on everything from prayer to poetry to puff pastry. In The Supper of the Lamb, Capon talks about festal and ferial cooking, emerging as an inspirational voice extolling the benefits and wonders of old-fashioned home cooking in a world of fast food and prepackaged cuisine. The Supper of the Lamb offers a theology of food and cooking, and a reminder that the world where we find ourselves is itself a feast and a gift.

Jonathan Rogers will lead a read-through and discussion of The Supper of the Lamb, with additional “In the Kitchen” activities and cooking demos led by Hutchmoot chef John Cal. Live discussions will happen via Zoom at 7:00 p.m. CST on Thursday nights, beginning December 10 (with a break for Christmas Week). Here is the reading schedule for Zoom discussions:

  • Thursday, December 10: Prefaces — Chapter 4
  • Thursday, December 17: Chapters 5 — 8
  • Thursday, December 31: Chapters 9 — 12
  • Thursday, January 7: Chapters 13 — 16

You are welcome to join at any time, even after the live chats have ended. The discussions will be archived, and the online forum will be open indefinitely for new registrants to continue reading and discussing the book.
