Secrets of a Hutterite Kitchen is the second book of Mary-Ann Kirk after (I am Hutterite). This informative book is about the unique culture of the Hutterites, focusing on the kitchen time to revive the food culture of her childhood. The Schmiedeleut sect was the setting for her first book. For this one, she discovers the Lehrerleut and Dariusleut sects, spending over two years visiting Hutterite colonies’ kitchens and dining rooms across Canada meeting and talking with their head cooks .The reader learns that there is a lot of fun, rivalry, and customs woven through the inner workings of the kitchen. This book invites the reader to discover a different culture through its food traditions, menus and rituals as well.
