TABLE CONVERSATIONS: BUILDING COMMUNITY AS WE EAT
Kendall Vanderslice is a baker, writer, and the founder of the Edible Theology Project, an educational nonprofit connecting the Communion table to the kitchen table. She earned her master’s of theological studies from Duke Divinity School and master’s in gastronomy from Boston University. She has committed her life to the study of food and is a professionally trained baker.
Through her work in food studies and theology, Vanderslice explores the ways God uses the table to restore communities and creation. In her most recent book, By Bread Alone: A Baker’s Reflection on Hunger, Longing, and the Goodness of God, she discusses her faith journey, shares recipes, and dives into the role of bread in church history.
In 2018, Vanderslice was named a James Beard Foundation national scholar for her work bridging food and religion. She is the author of Will Feast: Rethinking Dinner, Worship, and the Community of God, and her writing appears in Christanity Today, Christian Century, Faith & Leadership, and Religion News Service.
