Simply Delicious Amish Cooking by Sherry Gore





Book Description

Unbeknownst to many folks outside the Amish Mennonite population in America, Pinecraft, Florida - a village tucked away in the heart of Sarasota - is the vacation paradise of the Plain People. Unlike any other Plain community in the world, this village is a virtual melting pot of Amish and Mennonites from around the world, intermingled with people, like author Sherry Gore’s family, who live there year-round.
Gore has put together a cookbook that represents the people who make Pinecraft unique. With hundreds of easy-to-prepare recipes, 16 full-color photographs and black-and-white photographs throughout, this cookbook includes traditional favorites such as Sweet Potato Sweet Mash and Mrs. Byler’s Glazed Donuts, as well as Florida favorites including Fried Alligator Nuggets, Grilled Lime Fish Fillets, and Strawberry Mango Smoothies. Interspersed with the recipes are true-life stories about births, engagements, weddings, deaths, funerals, celebrations, wildlife encounters, and accidents told through years of Sherry’s Letters from Home column published in The Budget, the Amish newspaper. This delightful cookbook offers readers a faith-based, family-focused perspective of the simple way of life of the Plain People. It is truly a breath of fresh air from Sarasota, Florida!

My Review of Book

Simply Delicious Amish Cooking is a collection of Amish Recipies and Stories from the Amish of Sarasota, Fl, complies by Sherry Gore. I really like this cookbook, the book itself is beautiful and very attractive looking. There are tons of great looking recipes with pictures of some of the recipes included. One thing I like is that a lot of the recipes are simple and easy to fix. And I also love the pictures and tidbits about the Sarasota Amish community. I always love reading anything about the Amish life and Amish communities, so this was especially interesting.

If you are a cookbook lover, or just want a cookbook with different recipes to try, I think you will really enjoy this one. And the beauty of the book makes it a very nice gift.

I received this book from the publisher Zondervan through their blogging program, Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze, to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
