Typical recipes include an Amish-Mennonite Tapioca Pudding from Kalona; Czech Kolaches from the Czech Village, Cedar Rapids; a Danish Kringle from Elk Horn; Norwegian Rye Bread from Decorah; and Dutch Currant Bread from Pella.

Band night, church social, or just backyard ice cream recipes preserve a culture that still prevails in many Iowa communities. There are prize recipes for preserving the bounty of the backyard garden, including pickles, chutneys, jams, and jellies. And with an air of State Fair, recipes for meats and poultry abound, along with breads, pies, cakes, and cookies.

This revised edition of a Penfield favorite has an expanded “Sites and Events” section in handy to use, recipe-card-size, spiral-bound booklet.
