More than a cookbook, this is a fascinating glimpse of how German culinary tradition intersects with a German Protestant sect and then transplants itself to the New World. Immigrating first to New York state to escape religious and political persecution, and then further west to Iowa. An interesting foreword and history followed by German comfort food recipes.
