A wonderful cookbook of tasty recipes from the plain communities. A wide variety of recipes from breakfast, beverage, breads, spreads, soups, salads, side dishes, and meats. When you get through enjoying those move on to the cakes, cookies, pies, candy, snacks and more. Lucy Leid is Old Order Mennonite. A must have cookbook for any cookbook collector. Love the fact that it doesn’t call for a bunch of things that I would have to go buy.

About the book:
Gather Around the Amish Table (MennoMedia, September 2015)
Straight from Amish kitchens to yours, this cookbook offers favorite family recipes and charming stories from Amish and Mennonite cooks.
Bake the pecan rolls that taste best after an ice-skating party, or try the hoagies that a community sold to help an Amish family with hospital bills. Discover the cocoa cupcakes with instructions to “stir by hand” that one young cook took literally, or whip up the whoopie pies that one Amish woman took to market in her horse and buggy.
These cherished recipes speak of comforting traditions, lively communities, and strong Christian faith. Gather your family around the table to sample the nourishing fare and trademark charm of the plain people. In the words of one cookbook contributor: “Bake someone happy!”
