In The Vegan Mennonite Kitchen, Jo Snyder revisits recipes from the beloved Mennonite Community Cookbook, the grandmother of all Mennonite cookbooks. After inheriting her own grandmother’s well-worn copy, Snyder brought together friends and family around the dinner table to reimagine some of her childhood favourites using plant-based ingredients. The result of those dinners are the recipes in this book. Throughout the book, Snyder weaves in stories of her family and growing up on a crop farm in Southern Ontario.
