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!”

My thoughts:

Gather Around The Amish Table is a lovely cookbook and a wonderful sampling of the food and fare shared in plain communities.  Brimming with recipes and stories from Amish and Mennonite families, this treasury of favorites is a great addition to any kitchen.  I really enjoy the easy-to-make recipes and the beautiful photographs that include food and glimpses of Amish life.  The stories shared by the various contributors are a pleasure to read and really make this cookbook special.  My family and I have enjoyed the recipes we’ve tried and look forward to enjoying many more!
