Potato Pie and Cherry Pickle

By Alexandra McDermott

Food & drink, Art & photography | Paperback


The heritage recipe books of Bucks County are full of unusual and delectable recipes: lamb terrapin, breaded carrots, cocoa-molasses fudge, and lemon-apple pie. However, their outdated terminology and vague measurements can make recreating these dishes a challenge for the cooks of today. In Potato Pie and Cherry Pickle: Vintage Recipes from Pennsylvania's Historic Bucks County, ninety of these recipes, carefully selected from old community cookbooks and recipe collections, have been updated and re-written for the use of the modern home cook. The area’s rich history and culture is also reflected in a series of “Bucks County spotlights” that appear throughout the book, featuring sites of historical and culinary interest. The book is divided into ten chapters, and every recipe is illustrated by a full-color photograph. The influence of the Pennsylvania German community is evident in a number of the recipes, including quaintly-named dishes such as Boova Shenkel, Tokey, and Boofers. English cuisine, brought over by the Quakers who originally founded the county, has also left its mark with Figgy Pudding, Graham Soda Bread, and Tomato Rarebit. If you have an interest in food history, are intrigued by vintage recipes, or merely enjoy good food, this book is for you!
