"This cookbook is the result of numerous inquiries at the Canadian Mennonite Conference last year, regarding recipes for feeding such large groups of people as a conference calls for. Since the delightful Mennonite custom of gathering in large numbers and dining together, when possible, is gaining in popularity as means of travelling increases, it was decided to publish a sheet giving the most popular recipes used in mass cooking.
One thing led to another, and by the time the book was in the drawing board stage, it was decided to also add a chapter of Mennonite recipes. Many of these hail back from the days of want and austerity, and are no longer in use, but may be of interest for coming generations to read, or in inspiration to a cook who is in an adventurous mood. From there it was natural to also add the favourite recipes of the present generation.
The Committee in charge wishes to thank the ladies of Niverville, Arnaud, Ste. Elizabeth and Grunthal for their help in making this book possible, and also the ladies from all across Canada who contributed their favourite recipes. It must also be added that all recipes are kitchen tested for your convenience and cooking pleasure."
