Monastic food

Have any of you tried food or beverages (besides trappist beers)produced by monks/nuns? Was it any good?

    Monk bread tastes terrible. It's basically already stale by the time it gets to the grocery store.

    Redwoods Monastery makes some of the best creamed honeys I've ever had, and are really good cooks if you ever get a chance to visit, usually a lot of vegetarian dishes. There's another Trappist monastery in northern California, New Clairvaux, that makes some fantastic wines. One of the brothers there also makes a killer mutton stew and the guest kitchen always has fresh or pickled stuff from the gardens.

      I wish some of the American Buddhist monasteries cared as much about good food, every one I've been to has been pretty awful but local vegan covens always rave in their reviews anyways so it's hard to tell without showing up.

    So what's the deal with these guys and their beer? Do they drink it or do they just sell it?

      afaik benedictines monks drink beer either every other day or at least once a week. The reason for this is to help them abstain from food during fasts or periods of reduced rations since beer provides some calories they need to keep working on their daily monastic duties. They also sell most of their production to fund their abbeys and charity works. Not sure how the other monastic orders manage their beer/alcohol though because the rule of Saint Benedict specifically orders its monks to work for their living.

      Buddhist (Korean) breakfast that I had was great. Seasoned rice with a fried egg. Miso soup. Seaweed crisps. Some kind of pickled daikon and kimchi. It was all vegetarian and very good.

    There's this convent that bakes French bread and pastries and the nuns will just pop up at every farmers market or adjacent event in a 50 mile radius. They're kino

    Does jizz count as a food or a veg? Because Brother O'Malley worked me when I was younger. Aside from that I had some cheeses made by Trappist Abbey's when I was in Belgium and they were fantastic. I highly recommend the cheeses.

    I've had wine and rakija made at a small Orthodox monastery in KCMO before. Pretty good stuff.
    Also had dinner and breakfast there, all natural ingredients that taste good.
    Otherwise I get coffee and tea from another one in Maryland and on Vashon Island
