Reviews - What do customers think about Extending the Table: A World Community Cookbook?
Not just "Christian moralizing" May 18, 2008
All the recipes in this book are delicious, clear, and exciting, as the other reviews amply cover, but the anecdotes and essays and quotes are equal treasures. While the book is written from a missionary-Christian POV, I found it meaningful and touching as an agnostic sort-of-Jew, and never felt proselytized or talked down to, and it never seemed like the many different faiths and cultures of the people contributing the recipes were being disrespected. So don't let the fear of evangelizing put you off of it!

I LOVE THE INTERNATIONAL RECIPES. WHEN I CANNOT THINK OF ANYTHING TO PREPARE FOR DINNER, GUESS WHERE I LOOK. SO FAR, I HAVE NOT PREPARED ANYTHING THAT I DID NOT LIKE AND AM FINDING FAVORITES IN THE PROCESS.
interesting and reliable Jan 12, 2008
I have used this cookbook for a number of years and recommend it highly. I have never been disappointed by any of the recipes, and that's a pretty high accolade!
