Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking: Traditional Family Cuisine Secrets (Paperback)
Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine is the typical and traditional fare of the Pennsylvania Dutch.
According to one writer, "If you had to make a short list of regions in the United States where regional food is actually consumed on a daily basis, the land of the Pennsylvania Dutch-in and around Lancaster County, Pennsylvania-would be at or near the top of that list," mainly because the area is a cultural enclave of Pennsylvania Dutch culture.
Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine reflects influences of the Pennsylvania Dutch's German heritage, agrarian society, and rejection of rapid change.
It is common to find Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine throughout the Philadelphia/Delaware Valley region.
