In the 1960s, Edna Staebler moved in with an Old Order Mennonite family to absorb their oral history and learn about Mennonite culture and cooking. From this fieldwork came the cookbook Food That Really Schmecks. Interspersed with practical and memorable recipes are Staebler's stories and anecdotes about cooking, Mennonites, her family, and Waterloo Region.
Edna Staebler was an award-winning literary journalist and author of 21 books. Her cookbooks are full of wonderful descriptions, colourful anecdotes and flavourful dialect, as we peek into the cooking pots of her friends and family. Staebler was also among the very first cookbook authors to celebrate regional cooking and, as a result, was primarily responsible for bringing the Waterloo region, with its good food and drink, to the attention of the rest of Canada.Publishing Details
