God is everywhere—including the kitchen! Just ask Fr. Dominic Grassi, ardent gourmand, amateur chef, and full-time pastor on Chicago’s North Side. Fr. Grassi has long been stirred by the combination of good food and good stories, and Bumping into God in the Kitchen showcases his literary and culinary talents through 50 poignant, funny, inspiring, and at times educational stories.

Each of these personal stories in some fashion reminds us that God is everywhere that food can be found. And since Grassi knows that reading about food makes a person hungry, he has also served up his favorite recipes throughout the book. Fr. Grassi’s cuisine? Italian, of course!

Fr. Dominic Grassi 

Dominic Grassi is a pastor on the north side of Chicago.
