The Amish Cookbook: Recollections and Recipes from an Old Order Amish Family
The Amish Cookbook
Recollections and Recipes from an Old Order Amish Family
Hardcover      ISBN: 1580082149
The Amish Cook, a full-color cookbook based on Elizabeth Coblentz's columns of the same name, compiles more than 75 traditional Amish recipes, photographs of the Coblentz farm, practical gardening tips, cherished family tales, and firsthand accounts of traditional Amish events like corn-husking bees and barn raisings.
The column started when aspiring newspaper editor Kevin Williams convinced Elizabeth Coblentz, an Old Order Amish wife and mother, to write a weekly cooking column called "The Amish Cook." Each week Elizabeth shared a family recipe and discussed daily life on her Indiana farm, spent with her husband, Ben, and their eight children and 32 grandchildren.
A truly unique collaboration between a simple Amish grandmother and a modern-day newspaperman, The Amish Cook is a poignant and authentic look at a disappearing way of life."
