Episode 29 - Kendall Vanderslice


Today we get the chance to hear from a pastry chef. I want you to enjoy the idea of that right now because EVERY DAY should include some wisdom from a pastry chef. Kendall Vanderslice is a baker, a writer, the owner of a beagle named Strudel (I mean, come on), and she is the author of a new book: By Bread Alone: A Baker’s Reflections on Hunger, Longing, and the Goodness of God. I so enjoyed hearing from Kendall, both in her lovely book and in this conversation. She is a woman who has a lot to teach us about the beauty of community, persistence in a broken world, and the many good things that happens when we share our tables.

Kendall Vanderslice is a baker, writer, and speaker, as well as the founder of the Edible Theology Project, a ministry that connects the Communion table to the kitchen table. She is a graduate of Wheaton College (BA Anthropology), Boston University (MLA Gastronomy), and Duke Divinity School (Master of Theological Studies). Her bylines include Christianity Today, Bitter Southerner, Christian Century, Religion News Service, and Faith & Leadership, as well as her book We Will Feast (Eerdmans 2019). Kendall lives in Durham, North Carolina, with her big-eared beagle named Strudel, where she teaches workshops on bread baking as a spiritual practice. Visit her online at kendallvanderslice.com.
