This book was a gift from my dear Mennonite, low-German-speaking grandmother, whose parents immigrated from Germany to Kansas via south Russia. The recipes I learned to love and enjoy on my visits to Kansas, and crave afterward (including such delicacies as varenika, cherry moos, and pfeffernusse), appear with heartwarming accuracy here, along with informative history, personal memoirs, and baking tips from real Mennonite cooks. I'm proud to have such a rich and colorful heritage!
