Back in Print! Ten years ago, aspiring newspaper editor Kevin Williams convinced Elizabeth Coblentz, an Old Order Amish wife and mother, to write a weekly cooking column called "The Amish Cook." Each week Elizabeth shares a family recipe and discusses daily life on her Indiana farm, spent with husband, Ben, and their eight children and 32 grandchildren.
This full-color volume is based on Elizabeth's columns, compiling more than 75 traditional Amish recipes, photographs of the Coblentz farm, practical gardening tips, cherished family tales, and firsthand accounts of traditional Amish events like husking bees and barn raisings. A truly unique collaboration between a simple Amish grandmother and a modern-day newspaperman, this is a poignant and authentic look at a disappearing way of life.
