When it comes to entertaining dinner guests, hosting the parish monsignor might send one scampering for only the finest of recipes. But fuss isn’t necessary when Msgr. Christopher Nalty comes to call. The monsignor will do the cooking.
Pastor of Good Shepherd Parish, St. Stephen Church, and a New Orleans native, Nalty co-hosts the “Around the Table” radio program, 690-AM, WQNO New Orleans, with Jeff Young, founder and producer of The Catholic Foodie blog and podcast, and David Dawson, president and General Manager of Catholic Community Radio.
Nalty cooks when invited over and draws in family members to help with preparation. For Nalty, food means more than physical sustenance.
“Cooking, for us in Louisiana, surrounds the family,” Nalty said, describing home meals growing up where conversation centered on family. “The meal was not just about nourishment, but about bringing people together.”
