David Geisser, 24, who joined the elite Vatican security corps a month ago launched his cookbook "Bon Appetit, Swiss Guard" in Rome.

It includes recipes for dishes such as the "Dulche de Leche" a milk-based dessert created in Argentina a century ago which made its way to the Vatican's tables in 2013 with Pope Francis.

There is also the Polish pierogi, or dumplings of unleavened dough traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, meat, cheese or fruit -- a nod to the late pope John Paul II -- and Bavarian delicacies favoured by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

"A soldier can only fight and wage war when he has eaten well, and enough," said Daniel Anrig, the head of the Swiss Guards.
