Extending the Table... ...A World Community Cookbook


Joetta Handrich Schlabach
Commissioned by Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), Akron, Pennsylvania, to promote global understanding and celebrate the variety of world cultures

A volume of A World Community Cookbook

Extending the Table follows in the tradition of Doris Janzen Longacre’s More-with-Less Cookbook, and especially her Living More with Less[...]. Both books challenged us to learn from the world community, to celebrate with joy, and to care for the earth. Extending the Table presents recipes and stories of people around the world. Many of them live with few material resources, yet they share gifts which point us toward a different and freer way of life. Extending the Table is much more than a cookbook. It will most often be found on the kitchen shelf, but it could just as well fit comfortably on the bedside stand or coffee table for inspirational reading. [...]For all of us, it provides repeated opportunities to take part in the lives of the people around the world and to delight in the wealth they have to offer. As we are able to treat other peoples with respect and tenderness, we too are changed.”
