Did you know that the Swiss Guard not only protects the pope, they also cook for him? So what’s the Pontiff’s favorite foods? The Guard’s cookbook reveals that like most Argentinians, Pope Francis enjoys a good steak, spicy empanadas and dulce de leche—a caramel milk pudding from his native country.
But most often the modest pontiff adheres to simple foods such as fruit, skinless chicken and salads with an occasional glass of wine. Though he recently revealed that one of the things he missed most was walking the streets of Rome and stopping for a slice of pizza.
His Holiness is scheduled to try a hoagie in Philadelphia.
