Food for Fellowship

We have observed the growth of a wonderful practice in many Mennonite congregations during the last several years-the church fellowship meal! Where we once invited "company" home for Sunday dinner, today we are more likely to share a carry-in lunch in the church fellowship hall after morning worship.

It's a custom worth fostering, we believe, especially when we see so little of each other apart from Sunday morning. Furthermore, it seems more appropriate to relax in the spirit of community rather than to be entertained by one starring (and probably tense and exhausted!) cook.

Familiar Favorites

Collected here are favorite recipes from Mennonite fellowship meals, offered by the cooks who prepare them. "People ask me to bring this," some explained with gentle pride. "I love watching people go for this dish," or "I take this because I never have any leftovers," admitted others!

A Multi-Cultural Event

Food fuels friendships and begins to undo prejudices. In that spirit, this book contains favorite dishes from the many food traditions which are now part of the Mennonite family of faith. In some places throughout North America, Mennonite fellowship meals are multi-cultural events, reflecting the make-up of their congregations. Experiment with the Lao, Chinese, Belizean, Mexican, Native-American and African-American dishes that are part of this collection.

For Eating at Home

Not only are all these recipes fellowship meal favorites, they also feed family and friends equally well at home. One note if you prepare these dishes for eating at home-the number of servings included with each recipe assumes the traditional bounty of a fellowship meal. Consequently, we have assumed more servings per recipe than is likely to be adequate for home use.

About Titling Recipes

While most Mennonite cooks take pride in the food they fix, they are also a modest lot. We took one liberty as editors that may challenge the humility of a few who submitted recipes to us: in some cases we included the name of the submitter in the title of the recipe, in an effort to distinguish it from similar surrounding recipes. (We figured that was in keeping with our tradition of crediting the maker of a favorite dish by the name we give it-"Aunt Anna May's Snickerdoodles," for example.) We do apologize if we have embarrassed anyone with this decision.

If You're in Charge

In the interest of easing your planning for a fellowship meal we have included a chapter about overcoming common hurdles-what to do when your oven space is limited; what if there are too few electrical outlets; how to overcome tight quarters for eating.

If You Don't Know What to Make

To give you inspiration when you've been asked to bring finger food, when you're looking for something children will enjoy or when you want to make an unusual dish, we offer special indexes at the back of the book to those categories, plus several others.
May you find this food delectable and nourishing, not only for your bodies, but for your friendships and families also. There is incomparable warmth in eating together. This is food for fellowship. Thank you, countless cooks, for offering your best dishes so bountifully!
