Contrary to popular opinion, all Mennonites can’t sing, but we can all learn to cook. In addition to the history and recipes of traditional foods like portzelky and paska, this fully illustrated hardcover offers Canadian and Mexican dishes, gluten-free alternatives, and devotionals and testimonies by each of the “girls.” Unlike my Oma’s Mennonite cookbooks that read “Prepare as usual, bake till done,” this gift book’s simple, step-by-step instructions will keep girls (and boys) of any background happily churning out kielke for years to come.
