Part diner, part family-style restaurant, the Famous Dutch Kitchen Restaurant in Frackville, Pennsylvania, north of Lancaster County, serves up some of the best food in this popular tourist area visited by more than five million people each year. Feast on turkey pot pie, ham and cabbage casserole, and delicious vegetables. The cornbread is moist, flavorful, and nearly as sweet as cake. And top it all off with shoofly pie or the Famous Dutch Kitchen's signature Atomic Banana Split.
Pennsylvania Dutch Country is a land of rolling farmlands dotted with one-room schoolhouses where you will encounter horse-drawn buggies, beautiful quilts, and industrious "Plain People."

Jane Stern was raised in New York City and southern Arizona, learning to love both hot pastrami sandwiches and bordertown chimichangas. She met Michael Stern when they were graduate students at Yale University, at which point the couple set out on a lifelong quest to find the best American food and to write about it.
Michael Stern was raised at a Heartland table of square meals. The Sterns ’ monthly “Roadfood” column in Gourmet magazine has earned them three James Beard Awards for journalism. They are heard weekly on Public Radio's The Splendid Table.
The Sterns, authors of Roadfood and other books about America's out-of-the-way, quaint, quirky restaurants, continue their trek across the country with this latest offering. Part traditional chrome and Formica diner, part conventional restaurant (depending on whether you enter from the car park or I-81), the Dutch Kitchen (60 miles northeast of Harrisburg, Pa., in Frackville) offers typical Pennsylvanian cuisine. The restaurant's cooking is bold and filling, consisting of hearty meals to satisfy vigorous appetites and time-honored immigrant dishes. The recipes, which the Sterns gathered from the restaurant's chefs, promote simple, traditional fare with the famous "Dutch" (a possible corruption of "Deutsch," or German) emphasis on the seven sweets and seven sours. Nourishing diner staples like Meatloaf and a beef version of Shepherd's Pie are accompanied by colorful sides like Pickled Eggs, Applesauce Salad and Pennsylvania Dutch Chow-Chow (a relish of assorted pickled vegetables). The authors present the recipes in a plain, no-nonsense manner that assumes a certain knowledge of cooking, as the instructions are sparse almost to the point of paucity. The Sterns also include colorful descriptions of the area and its history, providing a capsule of Americana. This pleasant local cookbook should delight those interested in the German influences on America's culinary history and those with a love for nostalgic heartland favorites.
