"Simply Delicious Amish Cooking" by Sherry Gore

Simply Delicious Amish Cooking: Recipes and Stories from the Amish of Sarasota, FloridaMy rating: 3 of 5 spoons

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. 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.i>

Simple, family and faith focused book of recipes from a village in Florida. Everything from bread to barbecue sauce, salads, homemade dressings, fried chicken, sunburst lemon cookies and even alligator stew!! I particularly enjoyed the "This 'n That" section in the back with recipes for soft pretzels, taffy, yogurt and strawberry jelly among other things. Nice little cookbook that I could see myself using fairly often.

I received a digital copy of this book from Zondervan through for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
