The Amish Cook's Baking Book
by Lovina Eicher and Kevin Williams
For the Amish, baking is an art form, a pleasure, and a way of life. The emotion they bring to baking is at the heart of THE AMISH COOK'S BAKING BOOK. Together, celebrated Amish cook Lovina Eicher and her editor, Kevin Williams, introduce a new generation to Amish baking.
This baking book is filled with 80 beautiful photographs and over 100 classic Amish recipes for sweets that have been handcrafted in Lovina Eicher's Amish kitchen. 'The Amish Cook's Baking Book' includes the following chapters: Pies; Breads, Rolls, and Pastries; Cookies; Cakes; Bars 'n' Brownies; and Special-Occasion Baking. Home cooks get an extra treat with sidebars from Lovina's children as well as interesting insights into Amish life both inside and outside the kitchen.
"Baking is something my mother taught me, much like sewing and ironing, or gardening. Now, as a mother of eight children of my own, I am beginning to teach them how to bake. I have many cherished memories of baking throughout my life." --Lovina Eicher
~ I love to cook and bake and this book is full of good, regular recipes. Not fancy gourmet food that my family wouldn't like anyway. I have tried several recipes and all have turned out wonderfully. I completely enjoy the narratives about Amish life and culture. I highly recomend this book to anyone who likes to bake...you will not be disappointed!

~ I was very happy with the book. I especially liked the pictures of the children helping their Mom. I haven't tried the recipes yet but I have used some of the author's recipes that were in the newspaper. Very good.
