    I read it already, and would highly recommend it both for it’s cultural history and it’s recipes.

    The book sounds fascinating, and is going on my to-be-read list. I vividly remember making homemade noodles with my mother and grandmother as a child, using the same ingredients and recipe that had been used for a century or so!

    I learned so much just from this Q and A. Can’t wait to read the book.

    Sounds great

    Traditional foods that can be grown locally and prepared on a budget? Sounds like my kind of book. With the added bonus of learning more about a culture I find so interesting. I look forward to reading it.

    “noodles, dumplings, pocket dumplings”…”Christmas dessert foods…”–sounds like the home fare I grew up with. Interesting about chow-chow’s origins (though it still doesn’t appeal to me).

    This book sounds like a treasure trove of little-known cultural gems that would also whet one’s appetite. The cover is certainly kitsch-y (if I spelled that right.) Intriguing!

    Sounds like a very interesting book ! Looking forward to reading it. My mom and grandmom were both excellent PA Dutch cooks. I learned so much from them and passed the recipies on to my two daughters as well. Another great PA Dutch cookbook from a woman in Berks County is ” Sweet Things And Such, From The Land Of The Pennsylvania Dutch” by Florence Shunk . This cookbook is my ” go to ” cookbook for all foods PA Dutch ! She used to cook on BCTV back in the day and I received an autographed copy of her cookbook at the Reading Fair in 1981. Although it doesn’t have much history, these recipies are delicious and authentic !
