Product description

From Amazon

Extending the Table calls itself "a world community cookbook," but it is far more than that. Yes, there are recipes here from all over the globe: Sesame Spinach Salad from Korea, Hunter's Stew from Poland, and Watermelon Jan from Botswana. There are myriad rice dishes, lots of recipes featuring beans and lentils, and an array of delicious beverages--from Philippine Punch to a Ginger Cooler from the Ivory Coast. But what makes this cookbook so special is its social conscience: following the lead of Doris Janzen Longacre, author of the More-with-Less Cookbook, Extending the Table invites readers to reduce their own levels of consumption and share resources with others around the world. Even more, it encourages us to learn from the global community. In addition to the recipes, there are stories about both individuals and whole cultures, explanations of the importance of certain types of food in different lands, and the rituals that surround particular meals. Extending the Table is the work of the Mennonite Central Committee, and many of the contributors are missionaries whose faith in the values of humility, community, and respect for others imbues the pages of this thought-provoking book. Extending the Table is truly food for the body and soul!

From Publishers Weekly

Cooks who don't object to dishes garnished with Christian moralizing (primarily on the virtues of sharing and the "sacred nature of food"141 ) will find an abundance of appetizing ideas for everyday cookery in this collection commissioned by the Mennonite Central Committee. Home economistp. 6 Schlabach's first cookbook brings together recipes from more than 80 different countries, from familiar Polish bigos or Chinese hot-and-sour soup to the more exotic--chicken with garlic and lime juice from Guadeloupe, and a recipe from Chad for meatballs that contain ground sesame and melon seeds as well as other seasonings. Some recipes have been adapted, mostly to reduce fat content or shorten preparation time. For example, Ugandan groundnut sauce can be prepared from scratch using raw peanuts, but a quick and very flavorful version can be whipped up by substituting chunky peanut butter. Some recipes, like Belizean potato salad and sayur manis (a sweet and spicy Indonesian dish made with butternut squash), include microwave instructions.
