Amish Cooks Across America

Amish Cooks Across America by Lovina Eicher and Kevin Williams is exactly what you need if you are wanting to make simple, delicious meals that are truly comfort food. This book, which is packed with beautiful photos, features recipes from across the country that are traditionally Amish. Although this book is not a vegetarian cookbook, there are a number of recipes that are perfect for vegetarians or vegans, and many more which can easily be adapted (by substituting non-dairy milk for traditional milk, for example). With recipes like Potato Chowder, Rhubarb Bread, Wheat Bread, Snitz Half-Moon Pies, and Rhubarb Tapioca, there is no lack of delicious flavor. Plus, Amish Cooks Across America features profiles of various chefs and eateries across the nation, highlighting the Amish traditions and specialties. This book is as much of a historical gem as a culinary one, even going so far as to give a recipe for traditional Amish lye soap. This is definitely worth adding to your shelf if you are looking for some cooking inspiration.
