Doris Janzen Lon­gacre lost her bat­tle with cancer three years af­ter pub­lish­ing the “More-with-Less” cook­book. She was 39. “I think my mother was very much an ex­per­i­menter with recipes,” said Cara Lon­gacre Hurst. “She of­ten didn’t use a recipe. She just tried things.” Lon­gacre, a di­eti­tian, worked with the Men­non­ite Cen­tral Com­mit­tee in Viet­nam and In­done­sia be­fore writ­ing the book in Lan­caster County. “I think cook­ing is just so im­por­tant on many lev­els - the smells, the con­nec­tions with fam­ily and friends around the din­ner ta­ble,” Hurst ex­plained. “It’s a cook­book that I still go back to a lot.”
