Seasons of Plenty: Amana Communal Cooking
The recipes in the book Seasons of Plenty: Amana Communal Cooking were collected and compiled by Emilie Hoppe with illustrations by Rachel Ehrman. We are pleased to share some of the recipes from this collection with permission of Emilie Hoppe. As you read through this wonderful cookbook, you come to appreciate how many talented cooks there were – and still are – in the Amana Colonies.
Seasons of Plenty is also a type of history book. Layered between recipes used in communal kitchens are stories about and history of the development of life in the Amana Colonies.
If readers are interested in purchasing this cookbook it is available for purchase online or in the gift shop of the Amana Heritage Society Museum and in the Amana Arts Guild gift area.
