About The Book

From the authors of the highly praised The Amish Cook at Home and The Amish Cook’s Baking Book comes a rare journey through twenty years in the life of an Old Order Amish family, full of memories, history, traditions, and some of the Amish Cook’s most popular recipes.

Part cookbook, part cultural education, part family memoir, The Amish Cook's Anniversary Book: 20 Years of Food, Family, and Faith celebrates two decades of home and hearth straight from the pens of the original Amish Cook, Elizabeth Coblentz, and her daughter and successor, Lovina Eicher.

Featured inside are classic recipes such as Cucumber Salad, Homemade Cheese Soup, Rhubarb Custard Pie, Poor Man's Steak, Asparagus Casserole, Frosty Strawberry Squares, and Yumasetti; a sampling of the best columns from "The Amish Cook" archives; reflections on Amish history and lore, including stories of old-order days; and glimpses into special events such as weddings, funerals, church services, butchering days, family reunions, and holidays.

More than 30 recipes are featured alongside evocative full-color photographs and descriptive monthly columns on topics ranging from cooking and gardening to family meals and celebrations--each offering insight on a culture rooted in food, family, friends, and faith.
