VEVAY, IN (FOX19) - Switzerland County resident Johanna Welch will sign copies of her book “The German Corner, A Love Story,” a cookbook and biography of growing up in Germany on First Friday. Welch will be inside the Switzerland County Visitors Center, located at 128 West Main Street in Vevay, from 6-9pm on March 1.
For nearly 30 years, Johanna and her husband Jim welcomed tour groups into their Switzerland County home for authentic German-cooked meals such as wienerschnitzel and sauerbraten. Along with the scrumptious fare, visitors were treated to Johanna’s accounts of growing up in Germany and the love story between her and her husband. The book, which includes recipes and stories, will be available for $10.
Having met while Jim was serving in the army, the couple has been married for 54 years. Though no longer offering tours, both Johanna and Jim are pursuing other interests and enjoying their retirement.
