WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT OUR CAKES

Throughout the years we have received positive comments on our cakes from many well-known persons.

Narsai David, Ann Landers, The Chicago Tribune, and Carmel Magazine have all published glowing reviews.

""When you forwarded that article describing how the monks of the New Camaldoli Hermitage are coping with their financial crisis, you claimed that their fruitcake is the best fruitcake in the world. I thought you were exaggerating. Not now! This stuff is preternaturally delectable! It's not just the best fruitcake in the world, it's the best fruitcake in the known universe. I love the way it sticks to everything, leaving brandy prints on breadboards, plates, fingers, clothing, you name it. And surprisingly, the list of ingredients shows that this celestial cake made by meditative Christians is better nutritionally too, compared to the vast majority of desserts." " Vance Aandahl

"I shared it with my colleagues at a station meeting. At first they were hesitant but after they got a whiff of brandy, they were eating out of my hand :)" Becca

"I don't even like fruitcake, and avoid it at all costs. But I was given a free sample, and I'll probably stop only when the samples run out." E. B.

"Your gourmet fruitcake tastes just like my mother in England used to make - delicious!" L. H. UK

"Best I ever tasted." L.A.R. Port Huron, MI

"Delicious! A favorite! You are going to love it!" Narsai David, CBS food critic

"Last year I was given a fruitcake . . . most delicious our family ever tasted - far better than I've ever made (and I thought they were excellent)." Margaret H. , Palm Springs, CA

"Thank you for your product It's wonderful." Anatol B., CA

2015 Hermitage Calendar

2015 Hermitage Calendar

Special Limited Edition liturgical calendar with December 2014 thru December 2015 months. Each month has a unique and beautiful scene of the hermitage, along with a picture and quote from one of our monks (a different monk each month). We have only printed a limited supply of these, and there are very few left, so you should order now if you'd like a copy. Once they are sold out, we won't be printing any more for 2015. Get your copy today - some of our monks have been here over 50 years, and there won't be many more opportunities like this to come along. $32.00
