Extending The Table: A World Community Cookbook
$15.00 – $25.00
Picture a vast table with room for everyone and laden with taste-tempting dishes from over 80 countries. Peach Chutney from Botswana, Ginger Cooler from Ivory Coast, Pork Vindaloo from India, Buyani’s Chicken Soup from Indonesia, Rice Noodles with Vegetables from the Philippines. Interspersed among the recipes are stories about how hospitality is practiced around the world. Extending the Table follows in the tradition of the More-with-Less Cookbook, written by Joetta Handrich Schlabach with recipe editor Kristina Mast Burnett.
This book is an inspiring and informative mix of easy recipies, and short anecdotes about the nature of food and community, and the political, social, environmental and spiritual aspects of them both. Instructions are easy to follow, well laid out, and many recipies offer time-saving options or “heat factor” adaptations.
This book will open your eyes to the role food plays in our lives on many different levels.
**Please note — this cookbook is produced by the Mennonite Central Committee, and does include many references to Christian beliefs. Even if you do not share those beliefs, don’t let that get in the way of enjoying this thoughtful and informative cookbook.**
Available in a sturdy paperback, or a deluxe hard cover with inner spiral binding so the book will lay flat while you’re cooking.
