The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that include food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. This episode discovers the delightful cuisine of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Recipes include Duck and Kraut, Pickled Eggs, Liver Dumplings, Potato Soup with Rivals (crumb-sized egg noodles), and sweet Shoofly Pie. Smith not only cooks, but also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
