Gather Around the Amish Table Book Review

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:

What a gorgeous, practical, and fun cookbook. Everything from making your own Homemade Root Beer to Homemade Baby Wipes. Okay, I won’t forget about Applesauce Raisin Cake or Seven-Layer Dinner.

Some of the Chapters are:

Breads and spreads
Soups, sandwiches, and pizza
Salads & pickles
Vegetables & side dishes
Meats & main dishes
Cakes & pies
Desserts & candy
Snacks, Beverages, & extras

This is a full colored cookbook with pictures of the many recipes. Also, several pictures of the Amish and Mennonite community. There is a lot of practical tips in the kitchen and heartwarming stories from the community.

I love it when a cookbook uses simple ingredients that make putting together a new recipe not complicated. This cookbook has over 259 pages

I haven’t been able to make any of the recipes as we have been in the midst of moving~twice. I look forward to making several recipes. The hardest part is deciding which one to make first.

Litfuse Publicity Group has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. In no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
