Food from Americas heartland is now chic--old-fashioned, yet suddenly very contemporary. This charming album includes nearly 200 family recipes, a culinary folk history of the Indiana Amish & Mennonites, & dozens of full-color photographs of the cuisine & the people who have created it. Marcia Adams affectionate portrait--slated for a 13-part PBS series that she will host--is sure to appeal to chefs, folk historians, & quilt lovers across America. The unpretentious folk cuisine of the Indiana Amish & Mennonites, with historical ties to Europe, Pennsylvania Dutch, & the rural Midwest, is linked to the land and the rhythm of the the seasons. This collection of hearty, wholesome dishes includes many recipes that Marcia Adams has rescued from obscurity--often handed down from mother to daughter or discovered in attic trunks. Each recipe has been updated, yet retains the simplicity & distinctive flavor of a country life-style that has survived for nearly 200 years. Each of COOKING FROM QUILT COUNTRYS 19 chapters explores a different aspect of farm life, such as the quilting bee, the barn raising, & the auction. Here are such nostalgic recipes as Moravian Sugar Cookies, Chicken Corn Soup with Noodles, Maple Syrup Dumplings, & Dandelion Greens with Hot Bacon Dressing. COOKING FROM QUILT COUNTRY is a journey home for anyone raised on country fare--& a delightful discovery for fans of American regional cooking.
