Review by: Jo Luck, former president and CEO, Heifer International, 2010 World Food Prize Laureate - April 8, 2014

Extending the Table is a global journey for the palate and the heart into resource-poor areas that are rich in cultural heritage, diverse in exquisite foods, overflowing with hospitality, generous in spirit, and rooted in a sense of community.”

Review by: Ron Sider, author of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger - April 1, 2014

“An invitation to delightful cross-cultural exploration, delicious meals, and probing justice education all in one engaging book—a cookbook with wonderful recipes from all over the world. This new edition of a highly successful international cookbook will continue to delight, inspire, and transform. Highly recommended.”

Review by: Jim Cornelius, executive director, Canadian Foodgrains Bank - April 1, 2014

Extending the Table powerfully reminds us of families all over the world gathering around tables to share food. It also reminds us that we need to make room around the table so that everyone has enough to eat.”

Review by: Malinda Berry, assistant professor of theology and ethics, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary - April 1, 2014

“By linking friendship and international foodways to global economics, Joetta Handrich Schlabach and contributors have prepared a feast made from the firstfruits of justice!’

Review by: Nancy Heisey, past president, Mennonite World Conference - April 1, 2014

“My original edition of Extending the Table is marked throughout with pencil notations of dates I tried recipes and guests’ reactions. This new edition allows me to keep on receiving from and sharing flavorful gifts with others, and now, with delight, to pass this heritage on to my grandchildren.

Review by: Marshall King, food columnist, managing editor of the Elkhart Truth - April 1, 2014

“The world has gotten smaller since Extending the Table was published in 1991. But we still need tastes of how others live as we gather around our tables and break bread together. This book is an excellent resource to connect with other cultures and the flavors they offer.”

Review by: Lovella Schellenberg, founder, Mennonite Girls Can Cook - April 1, 2014

Extending the Table is a treasury of recipes from our global community that celebrates the diversity of traditions. It keeps us mindful that food is both a necessity and a way to gather families around the table.”

Review by: Rosalynn Carter, former First Lady of the United States - July 1, 1991

“This book should be in kitchens all over North America!”
