Praise

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.
Jo Luck, former president and CEO, Heifer International, 2010 World Food Prize Laureate
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.
Ron Sider, author of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger
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.
Jim Cornelius, executive director, Canadian Foodgrains Bank
By linking friendship and international foodways to global economics, Joetta Handrich Schlabach and contributors have prepared a feast made from the firstfruits of justice!’

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 mygrandchildren.
