Simply Delicious Amish Cooking Booksneeze Book Review


Book Description 
Unbeknownst to many folks outside the Amish Mennonite population in America, Pinecraft, Florida - a village tucked away in the heart of Sarasota - is the vacation paradise of the Plain People. Unlike any other Plain community in the world, this village is a virtual melting pot of Amish and Mennonites from around the world, intermingled with people, like author Sherry Gore’s family, who live there year-round. Gore has put together a cookbook that represents the people who make Pinecraft unique. With hundreds of easy-to-prepare recipes, 16 full-color photographs and black-and-white photographs throughout, this cookbook includes traditional favorites such as Sweet Potato Sweet Mash and Mrs. Byler’s Glazed Donuts, as well as Florida favorites including Fried Alligator Nuggets, Grilled Lime Fish Fillets, and Strawberry Mango Smoothies. Interspersed with the recipes are true-life stories about births, engagements, weddings, deaths, funerals, celebrations, wildlife encounters, and accidents told through years of Sherry’s Letters from Home column published in The Budget, the Amish newspaper. This delightful cookbook offers readers a faith-based, family-focused perspective of the simple way of life of the Plain People. It is truly a breath of fresh air from Sarasota, Florida! 

My Thoughts:  
There's an Amish community just outside the small town in Kentucky where I was born. Oftentimes, when I was older during visits home to see my grandma, I would visit the local Amish markets for samplings of homemade jams and jellies. Simply good food, nothing complicated here.

The recipes contained in Gore's Simply Delicious Amish Cooking are simple, yet speak to years of tradition and international flavors.  I love to cook and enjoy collecting cookbooks.  Many of the cookbooks in my collection feature recipes which call for a trip to the grocery store.  However, that's not the case with this cookbook.  Tons of easy to make recipes straight out your pantry.  


Check out this easy to bake corn bread recipe.  I've tried it and it's easy breezy and delicious too. 




Buy It:   Simply Delicious Amish Cooking may be purchased at your local bookstore or online at Amazon or Zondervan
