Mennonite cuisine

From WikiMD's Health & Wellness Encyclopedia

Brief summary - Mennonite cuisine

Mennonite cuisine refers to food that is unique to and/or commonly associated with Mennonites. Mennonites are a Christian denomination that came out of sixteenth century Protestant Reformation in Switzerland and The Netherlands. Because of persecution, they lived in community and fled to North America, Prussia, and Russia and groups like the Russian Mennonites developed a sense of ethnicity, which included cuisine adapted from the countries where they lived. Thus the term Mennonite cuisine does not apply to all, or even most Mennonites today, especially those outside of the traditional ethnic Mennonite groups. Nor is the food necessarily unique to Mennonites, most of the dishes being variations on recipes common to the countries (Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Latin America) where they reside .
