We all have our favorite spots when we visit our favorite places. For me, if you are visiting Ohio's Holmes County Amish community there is only one place to go: Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen.
It was founded by Gloria and Eli Yoder as a place to sample authentic Amish cuisine and a sign of its authenticity is the large number of Amish customers that pack the place. I've been there before when half the customers (and it has two large dining areas) are Amish.
When I was meeting with blogger Bruce Stambaugh (more on that meeting soon, I promise) he heaped praise on what Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen has contributed socially to the fabric of the Amish community:
" A beautiful aspect of Gloria and Eli’s dream of having a restaurant there it has allowed this part of the Amish community to have a place to go out to eat for breakfast, buffet, or a candlelight dinner at Valentine’s Day, to see couples come together and celebrate in the public eye is a mark of progress and understanding," Bruce remarked.
Look at this sumptuous spread that we enjoyed at Mrs. Yoder's last week.
