Overview


There is a family of 5 daughters, each an outstanding cook—Jane, Ellen, Sibyl, Anne, Susan. And their brother’s wife, Yvonne, who cooks like a dream. Not surprisingly, there’s the matriarch, Esther
Rose, also a great cook.

The Daily Feast is the collection of irresistibly tasty, but easy-to-prepare recipes which have won their way onto the Graber families’ tables. These are the recipes they prepare for their guests and the dishes they make when the whole extended family gets together.

For years, the Graber family cooks have passed their favorite recipes back and forth among themselves as they’ve left their Indiana home and scattered around the world, always learning to make and love the local dishes wherever they’ve lived. But always at the center of the growing collection were their own versions of beloved American dishes.

In The Daily Feast, each of the 7 Graber cooks presents 3 complete menus—one for a soup meal, the second for a family week-night supper, and the third for a more elaborate guest dinner. In addition, the Grabers offer menus and recipes for their favorite special-occasion meals.

An irresistible sampling of recipes found in The Daily Feast:

Penne with Eggplant, Tomatoes, Fresh Mozzarella and Herbs
Baked Chicken Caribe
Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro
Easy Blender Banana Nut Bread with Jamaica Glaze
Cave Creek Carnitas
Pear and Gorgonzola Salad with Orange Dressing
Lemon-Barbecued Meat Loaves
Fresh Tomato Chutney
Bourbon-Glazed Salmon with Sesame Seeds
Naan Bread
Dijon, Bacon, and Potato Salad
Grilled Italian Shrimp Skewers
Sweet Ricotta Fritters
Fresh Strawberry Pie

Full-color photography of the finished dishes underlines the family’s daily practice of beauty and good taste around the table!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The seven women of the Graber family, whose heritage is Amish and Mennonite, share their favorite meals in this cookbook, which began as a photocopied collection of recipes for family members and which is now a real life cookbook. Esther Rose and her surgeon husband Ron lived in Puerto Rico with their large family (which includes the five daughters who co-authored this book), who have since grown up, married, had children of their own, and have traveled extensively throughout Europe, China, and Turkey. These travels are reflected in the diversity of the dishes included here. Each woman (mother, five daughters and daughter-in-law Yvonne) shares three menus—a soup meal, a family weeknight meal, and a special occasion dinner. Soups from all over the world include a Senegalese soup with chicken, peanut butter, and curry powder; a Mexican posole stew; and a Thai ginger chicken soup. Entrees include fish (bourbon-glazed salmon with sesame seeds); chicken (baked chicken caribe); and meat (grilled, spiced lamb chops). For dessert they offer a homey fresh strawberry pie and a fried ice cream. (Apr.)
