The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook
Garden-fresh Recipes Rediscovered and Adapted for Today's KitchenBook - 2015 | First edition
In 1938, Fania Lewando, the proprietor of a popular vegetarian restaurant in Vilna, Lithuania, published a Yiddish vegetarian cookbook unlike any that had come before. Its 400 recipes ranged from traditional Jewish dishes to vegetarian versions of Jewish holiday staples to appetizers, soups, main courses, and desserts that introduced vegetables and fruits that had not traditionally been part of the repertoire of the Jewish homemaker.
