Product Description

An exquisite treasure (in small-size hardcover tradition of an Amish Portrait) that gathers recipes - and photographs of the people and places from which they come. The promise of bountiful food is offered here in two forms - lush recipes chosen from The Best of Amish Cooking (a Better Homes and Gardens Book Club main selection) - and jewel-like photographs of prepared dishes, gardens, farmland, and the cooks themselves. An Amish Table is the next best thing to making and eating the food itself! All recipes are complete and tested, and together offer a broad sampling of the Amish food tradition.

Publisher's Description

From the New York Times Bestselling author of the Fix-It and Forget-It cookbooks, comes an exquisite treasure which gathers Amish recipes, along with photographs of people, their homes, and their land.

The Amish have captured the interest of the modern world because of their plain quaint clothing, horses and buggies, their striking quilts, their scrumptious food. They, however, prefer to be regarded as a community of faith who deliberately seek to live in a way that honors God and the creation.

How did the Amish develop and retain a food tradition that is identifiable? With their sustained rural lifestyle, the Amish have maintained a productive relationship with their gardens and fields. With their large extended families they have not only been able to convey the love of certain dishes to their children, but they have also been able to show their daughters how to make those specialties, many of which are learned best by "feel" rather than by reading a cookbook.

In addition, their active community life supports the continuation of a food tradition -- at gathered times favorite dishes appear, undergirding the event, whether it be a school picnic, a funeral, or sister's day.

An Amish Table contains old recipes, but they are written to be understood and used by those without the benefit of these people's history or the presence of an experienced cook. Here, then, is the possibility of making good food -- not fancy, but substantial; more hearty than delicate; in tune with the seasons.
