Recipes for the Soul



Recipes for the Soul, a book of funeral food, tips and stories is a compendium of tantalizing recipes assembled by Vicki Hamel and Raenel Schertz, two delightful Texans with deep ties to their local heritage. The book was commissioned by the New Braunfels Cemetery Committee as a fundraiser for cemetery preservation. Inside you will find recipes including easy to transport dishes, libations for reminiscing (and loosening the tongue), hearty meals to feed the mourning, and plenty of advice, comfort and good fun! The photographs and artwork set the mood and invite you into our cemeteries to relax in the beauty where quiet memories abound.  

Recipes for the Soul, is available for purchase for $35. Cookbooks can be purchased online and shipped for an additional fee. Cookbooks can also be purchased and picked up at Parks and Recreation Administration Office at 110 Golf Course Road, Monday - Friday from 8am-5pm.
