Sharing the love of Pennsylvania Dutch cookbooks

Today’s letter comes in response to this February post on a cookbook I borrowed from friend and local 4-H helper extraordinaire Mary Jo Kraft, who is as Dutch as they come.

The letter is from Polly Meisenhelder, who has the same cookbook!

She writes, “My husband gifted me ‘The Art of Pa. Dutch Cooking’ on Nov. 5, 1977. The paper cover is gone except for the title and picture glued on. The spine is broken, lots of pages loose but/and it is still used almost every day. Friends think I’m a good cook!!”

I’m going to have to get my own copy of this book, it sure sounds like!

Just for fun, here’s a recipe from the aforementioned book that I’m going to try soon with the cornmeal in my pantry.

If you try it – let me know what you think!

About Joan Concilio

My name is Joan and I’m a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let’s share what makes life in York County great. I’m here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!
