Summary New Recipes from Quilt Country celebrates Amish cooking today, with irresistible offerings from the school lunch bucket, the roadside stand, the harvest cellar, and more. The chapter Casseroles and Carry-Ins provides the perfect fare for casual get-togethers and potlucks, while Family Milestones suggests tempting treats for important occasions and celebrations, and Changing Times, Familiar Favorites illustrates some of the ways outside influences have found their way into the Amish kitchen
With her award-winning book Cooking from Quilt country, Marcia Adams took readers on a memorable culinary odyssey through the rural Amish and Mennonite communities near her Indiana home. Now, nearly ten years later, she heads back to Quilt Country, serving up a second helping of nostalgic recipes, as well as offering fascinating insights into the changes that are slowly making their way into the Amish way of life. Broadening her scope to include Amish communities across the United States and Canada, too, she has found that higher land prices have caused many Amish and Mennonites to look beyond their agrarian roots; some have moved to far-flung locales in search of cheaper farmland, while others have become entrepreneurs, working in closer proximity to their "English" neighbors. In both cases, outside influences have left indelible marks on the food they prepare - often with delicious results
