At Home in the Kitchen – Judy Walter

Mennonite, Hutterite and Amish-Style Cooking

About the Book:
This cookbook reflects Judy’s enjoyment of cooking and preparing wholesome meals. You will find a collection of recipes for those new to the kitchen as well as recipes that cater to the experienced cook. Each recipe comes with clear step-by-step instructions using ingredients that are mostly simple and affordable. A wide range of food categories offers choices that appeal to many tastes and preferences. ‘At Home in the Kitchen’ will be a welcome addition to any cook’s collection.

My Review:
 I don’t usually get excited about cookbooks, simply because cooking is not one of my favourite activities. But Judy has created a treasure, jam-packed with a rich variety of recipes: soups, salads, desserts, pastries, meat dishes, breads and lots more. Complimenting this book beautifully, are stunning photos of fabulous foods from recipes within these pages. So, just leafing through the pages is a mouth-watering experience!  Another reason this book is so special for me, is the fact that it holds many of my favourite traditional Hutterite dishes, such as Dumplings, Gerstlsoup and Zwiebach (buns), giving people the opportunity to try Hutterite meals. Besides the tried and true recipes, there are many others that I'll definately try soon. My sister recently made the White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Cheese Cakes. (The name says it all!) This is by far the best cheese cake I’ve ever had! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to spend time at home in the kitchen.
