Amish Cooking Class Cookbook Over 200 practical Recipes for Use in any Kitchen by Wanda E. Brunstetter, an authority and one of the founder of Amish novels and literature, will be published on February 1 2018.
This book wants to be the sum of The Amish Cooking Class series of novels written by ms Brunstetter.
There is a lot to learn about Amish baking and cooking.
Personally I focused my attention on some recipes discovering for example an interesting novelty: for what I can see Amish people love to bake and cook differently from traditional American recipes adding oil and not butter in most recipes I know where butter is used the most.
The Amish don't live with our commodities and they decided to continue to breath the atmosphere we lived before the arrival of newest tools for simplifying our life, but not only: they refuse the use of cars, tractors, of every kind of novelty and their clock is interrupted in a timeless moment.
These women work hardly and a lot of chores wait them outside and inside the house because these families of Amish have all a farm.
They love to cook and bake with joy and dedication. Robust breakfasts, good cakes, delicious treats, at the beginning of the book some tips and advice for every cook.
Each section will be a great discovery I can tell you that.
I found delicious in the Bread section the famous Amish Friendship Bread and the Amish Cinnamon Rolls. The first recipe can be the base for more dishes.
In the cake section a great Strawberry Shortcake, but if you want to make happy your children why not to try the candy caramel?
Bars and Cookies will reveal a wonderful recipe for sweet chocolate cookies, a bit different from the most common one we know.
I noticed that Amish recipes are more "abundant" in terms of quantity of ingredients for a richest result and more available food.
A lot of pies for all tastes, Puddings section starts introducing us banana pudding. Latest sections are about Icing, Creams, and Sweet Sauces and Amish Canning.
I highly suggest you this yummy cookbook!
