I saw this photo on the website today.  They have an unfortunately-named category of posts called "food porn" where they post pictures of temptingly good looking eats.

But I thought that this cake ( looked like little Cathedrals.
I often add Holy Water and or oil to food.
Here's something I thought you'd enjoy, Satori: <-<-<-  they have roast beef and yorkshire pudding down for the feast of St. George. I thought you'd like that.

  :cake: I was thinking it would be fun to make St. Michael an angel food cake on his feast day, Sept 29.
If I may suggest a book called Food At the Time of the Bible which lists food found in the Bible and in Bible lands. It also has some recipes in there.
Not a lot of people know that trick-or-treating began with the begging of soul cakes where poor people would beg for cakes in exchange for praying for souls. You could honour the Korean saints by making Seoul cakes :laughing:. Making tteok ( might be difficult but some of those cakes are rather nice.
In France and Germany and parts of Britain, winter begins on "Martinmas" or Saint Martin's Day - November 11th - when those gifted with vision might catch the saint riding through the villages and countryside on his white horse, releasing from the folds of his cloak the first snow of the season.

Saint Martin's Day was one of feasting, when the first of the new wine was drunk. German children placed vessels of water on their doorsteps with the plea that the water be changed into wine. On the morning of Martinmas, the water would indeed be wine, and beside it a special cookie, shaped like a horse-shoe to show that the saint had ridden by in the night.

Cream butter and sugar. Add the other ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended. With fingers shape into horseshoes about 3 inches long and 1 inch thick. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake 35 minutes in a slow oven (300° F.). Cool. Roll in confectioners' sugar. And don't forget to raise a glass of wine in Martin's honor!
