Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The authors of The Central Market Cookbook return with another collection of recipes representing the regional cuisine around Lancaster, Penn.-widely known as Amish country. The contributions of those who own and staff the 70 stands reflects the local German heritage. There are recipes for Fladelsppe, pancakes in soup and German cucumber salad. Many of the contributors' favorites seem neither original nor inspired, such as those for potato and chicken salads, chicken noodle soup and tuna noodle casserole. Of greater interest are several recipes for desserts, including Black-Bottom Banana Bars, Glazed Apple Cookies and such Amish specialties as Montgomery and Quakertown pies. A history of the market and descriptions of some of the region's specialties, such as scrapple, are highlighted. (Dec.)

About This Cookbook-and the Place from Which It Came

There stands, just off the center square in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a monument to a food and gardening tradition-Central Market-both a building and an event. It is an architectural wonder in its gracefully historic character. It is a throbbing and enduring center, supported by its residential neighbors, the business and professional workers who share its streets, and all the loyals who drive in from greater Lancaster and even nearby states.

What brings the customers? What holds the standholders? What sustains the remarkable life in this place when the city that surrounds it must fend off a slow-down of commercial activity, a dwindling tax base, and fears of crime?

There are answers: Food that can't be resisted because it is carefully grown or produced by knowledgeable hands. Spirited standholders who understand their work as artisans. Devoted customers who know that going to market is always worth the trip, the earlier in the day, the better. A city who recognizes the treasure it has and continually interprets (and re-interprets) the market's charter-and intervenes when it is challenged.

Those who bring their bounty to market, and those who line up to take it away, know good food. They are attuned to the seasons. They understand texture and flavor. They enjoy the robust and the subtle. These "experts"-who work with the basics, the truck-patch-grown, the home-baked, the hand-prepared-have gathered together their own favorite recipes for this cookbook.

Some of these recipes call for products the standholders produce and sell, some are well rooted traditional dishes, some are simply personal favorites. As a collection, Recipes from Central Market mirrors the mix that Central Market is-the historic and novel, the foods of the long-settled Germans and the more-recently-arrived Asians and Lebanese, startlingly simple dishes and also multi-stepped productions.

We are grateful to the many standholders who took time away from their market-tending and market preparation to put their recipes in readable form for this book. Market Master Don Horn and fourth-generation standholder Viv Hunt made many connections for us. Joy Kraybill ably oversaw many details. Steve Scott did considerable research on the market's history and wrote much of the historical material. Thank you all.

Central Market offers its pleasure with food when you visit its brick-walled aisles-or when you prepare any of these choice recipes.

-- Phyllis Pellman Good and Louise Stoltzfus
