At the same time, the kitchen of the historic Elm Creek Manor, now a popular place for quilting retreats in Waterford, Pennsylvania, must be updated, leading to nostalgic memories of the manor’s traditions.

The book contains 100 recipes, including such items as vermecelli salad, vegetable curry, spring bread, Moroccan vegetable stew, friendship squares, bee tea and cranberry cornbread dressing.
