Heavenly delights: foods with religious meanings
These foods are both holy and delicious!
In just about any religion, food is one of the most important parts of ceremonies and traditions. From Christianity to Judaism, Islam to Taoism, all these religious groups have foods that symbolize an aspect of their faith.
Many such foods are also closely associated with a particular date or season, such as Easter or Rosh Hashanah. And as with all religious traditions, some foods have passed into widespread secular use, so you'll definitely recognize some of them outside a religious context.
