Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The follow-up to Adams's popular Cooking from Quilt Country (1989) offers more stories and simple recipes from Amish and conservative Mennonite communities across the country, providing a sometimes surprisingly intimate look into the lives of these private people. The recipes are grouped by time of day, with "Good Morning" chapters, for example, titled "Baking Day" and "The School Lunch Bucket"; some of the readable instructions focus on a particular family or activity, others on customs or topics like "Growing Up Amish." Most of the recipes are for hearty, homey fare, from frugal cooks used to feeding lots of people. Because both the Amish and the Mennonites are known for their baked goods, there are lots of delicious cookies, pies, and breads here. The companion volume to Adams's new PBS series, this is recommended for most collections.

A Recipe from New Recipes From Quilt Country

Sour Cream Raisin Pie (Makes one 10-inch pie)
This two-layer golden vanilla custard pie is subtly sweetened with maple syrup, and boasts a layer of raisins on the bottom.  It is a lighter version of the raisin pie served at Amish funerals, a tradition that dates back to the times when raisin pies were offered to mourners as a sign of respect to the deceased.

Pastry for a 1-crust 10-inch pie
1 cup golden raisins
3 extra-large egg yolks
1 extra-large egg
2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Roll out the pie dough and line a 10-inch pie pan.  Evenly sprinkle the raisins over the pie crust, and set aside.  In a mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks, egg, sour cream, syrup, sugar, nutmeg, vanilla, and flour.  Mix just until blendedyou don't want too many bubbles to form.  Pour over the raisins and sprinkle with nutmeg.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Remove to a rack to cool, then refrigerate.

I discovered this book over a year ago, at the public library. I read through it, and after I returned it I would find myself thinking: "I wonder about <insert recipe here>", and either my wife or I would have to go back to the library to check the book back out!
When I realized I was getting the book almost monthly, AND it stayed at the local branch because that's where I last returned it, I realized it was time to buy it!
With that little story, the rest of this review is simple: This is an excellent cook book. This is not a 'healthy' cookbook. There's no focus on lean, loosing weight, or heart-happy cooking here! This is good, rich, smother-it-in-gravy country cooking.
If you know the Amish, and you have visions of the men coming in at dusk from working the fields all day to a kitchen table stacked with fresh, home-cooked *American* food, this is your cookbook. It simply doesn't get better than this.

This is a gorgeous coffee-table book that probably won't spendmuch time there because it should be kept handy in the kitchen, orwherever your cookbook collection is! I read the book from cover to cover the first night because so many of the recipes sounded soooooo good. And easy, too. Anyone who has spent any time at all in a kitchen should find these understandable and easy to prepare. And for those who might not be as adept, there are plenty of instructions to make it that way. You'll be inspired to cook more and more! I can't believe it, but Marcia Adams topped the original Cooking from Quilt Country with this sequel. The only thing I don't understand is how the Amish and Mennonites are allowed to eat some of the dishes. The Chocolate Fudge Pie is positively decadent!

This book is awesome. Not only does it have wonderful recipes, especially desserts, which the Amish are famous for, but also has so much wonderful info. on the Amish people and their culture. I own several books about the Amish, and this is better than those other books even though this is a "cookbook." And the pictures are marvelous. Other than general info. on the Amish, my favorite part of this book is the fact that she divides the food into many different chapters and has a little story about each. An example is Baking Day, Lady Food, and the lunch bucket, as well as many other. This has info scattered throughout it about gardening by the signs of the moon, how to bake perfect cookies, and how to bake an angel food cake. I would highly recommend it.

This is not only a great cookbook, but also provides an insiders look at the interesting life of the Amish and Mennonites. The pictures are beautiful, and make one long for the simple life they live. I have all of Ms. Adam's cookbooks, and cherish them like old friends!

I cannot remember the last time I went through a cookbook and listed dozens of recipes I want to try. This kind of homey cooking is so appealing. The photos are superlative. We are planning a trip to northern Indiana as a result of reading this book. The resources in the back of the book for places to eat, stay, and see will be most helpful.

For cooks who like to read the background of their recipes as well as the interesting history of the Amish and Mennonite communities, this is an excellent title. The recipes are clearly written and easy to follow. My family has enjoyed many of those that we have made. I found that Adams' insight to the these groups made my appreciation of the Amish and Mennonites as well as their work ethic and cooking skills even greater. Excellent gift for the cook on everyone's gift list.

This Marcia Adams cookbook is my 2nd favorite cookbook, in over 40 years of cooking meals for my family. (My other favorite is "Joy of Cooking.") The recipes have become favorite foods for everyone I've cook for. I am often asked to bring along the spicey oven-fried chicken, and Grandmother Yoder's potato salad is the best I've ever tasted. The recipes are all delicious and don't use exotic ingredients, they call mostly for the spices and herbs everyone already has in their cupboard. You can't go wrong with this cookbook.
