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. (Aug.)
