A lot of attention in the coal region gets paid to our Polish, Lithuanian, and Irish roots. But there’s a strong Pennsylvania Dutch streak running through Schuylkill County.
And where there’s Pennsylvania Dutch folk, there’s good eating nearby. They sure can cook!
If you’ve got a foodie on your gift list this year, they’d probably love to learn more about PA Dutch food and of course, learn how to cook it. That makes a Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook a great gift any time of year.
