March 15-16, 2013  55th Illinois Mennonite Relief Sale & Anabaptist Culinary Traditions - Bloomington, Illinois
Pennsylvania Dutch cooking originally developed as an accommodation of rural German traditions to the foods of the American frontier. It is a cuisine that has undergone remarkable changes. Yet over the years it has continued to find favor in the kitchens of Mennonite, Apostolic Christian, Amish and other Anabaptist communities. Our tour visits the Mennonite Heritage Center near Metamora to learn about Pennsylvania Dutch in Illinois and the foodways of the Anabaptists of West Central Illinois. We will continue on to Bloomington where we will enjoy the foods and appreciate the crafts items offered at the 55th Annual Illinois Mennonite Relief Sale, an event that in many ways amounts to a grand celebration of Pennsylvania Dutch for a very worthy cause.
