STJgastroIt is somewhat curious that Saint Teresa is also patron of gourmets, of those who dedicate their lives to do in the rich viands stove. In fact on the day of Santa Teresa, 15 October, in many hotels and restaurants celebrate the feast of their patron ...
It is all due to the famous phrase teresiana: "Among the pots also walks the Lord". Or what is the same thing not only in the tabernacle but everywhere you can have a moment of intimacy or friendship with Jesus Christ. From this famous phrase many cooks have felt that Teresa was his patron.
Quote of the Holy is in his book entitled: Foundations 5, 8. And this is the literal phrase as we wrote: "Entended if in the kitchen (where obedience bring you employed), walks among the pots in the Lord helping inner and outer ".
And this is also the greatness of the mystic Teresa is a saint with his feet on the ground. This also speaks of sardines, bream, potatoes ... your letters besides spiritual advice and land problems ... show a little of the rich Spanish gastronomy. So in the letter 180, 4 says: "... And potatoes, who came to her while I have reluctantly sick eating, and very good they came "or" I received Hers, and with them the potatoes and pipote seven lemons. All very good wine ". Paper 222,1. Thanks to his brother Lorenzo Cepeda "sardines came good and candies in good time, but I would like your worship's stay with the best. God bless you "in the Charter 177,1.
We do not know for sure when appointed or if indeed it was. What we do know is that in Spain people who are dedicated to gastronomy have it for his patron.
