About the Book
★★★★★
Straight from Amish kitchens to yours, this cookbook offers favorite family recipes and charming stories from Amish and Mennonite cooks.

Bake the pecan rolls that taste best after an ice-skating party, or try the hoagies that a community sold to help an Amish family with hospital bills. Discover the cocoa cupcakes with instructions to "stir by hand" that one young cook took literally, or whip up the whoopie pies that one Amish woman took to market in her horse and buggy.

These cherished recipes speak of comforting traditions, lively communities, and strong Christian faith. Gather your family around the table to sample the nourishing fare and trademark charm of the plain people. In the words of one cookbook contributor: "Bake someone happy!"


When reading Amish fiction novels, I’ve noticed how authors always include the mouth-watering descriptions of a variety of home-cooked dishes and delicious desserts and make me long for such meals. Now, with cookbook Gather Around the Amish Table, compiled by Old Order Mennonite Lucy Leid, I can finally try my hand at these typical Amish meals. Leid’s cookbook is filled with simple, delicious, authentic recipes - highlighted with colorful, enticing pictures and interesting accompanying stories - for any time of day and any occasion and offers a wonderful resource for anyone who enjoys cooking, baking and trying new recipes. I would certainly recommend it.

Thanks to LitFuse Publicity Group, I received a copy of Gather Around the Amish Table and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. To read other opinions, be sure to check out what other reviewers think here, and purchase a copy of the book here.
