Wooden Spoon Wedding Sampler Cookbook

Amish weddings are intimate once-in-a-life time events. When it comes to wedding meals the Amish know how to put on a spread. For a traditional Amish wedding, though, it’s the place where the bride and groom and their four witnesses eat two meals-dinner and supper. These tables are carefully arranged and decorated by the bride.

In the Wooden Spoon Wedding Sampler, Miriam Miller an Amish bride from Holmes County Ohio, shares her entire wedding spread along with many personal memories of their wedding day. You’re invited to enjoy the recipes for her wedding chicken (page 40), dressing (page 37) and all the other fixings of a typical Amish wedding main course. Then for dessert you can pick between apple pie (page 80), peanut butter pie (page 81), date pudding (page 165), or jelly roll (page 101). Here’s your invitation to the food at an Amish wedding.

The Wooden Spoon Sampler includes a wide variety of recipes served in traditional Amish weddings.
