Where it Began

This section holds some of the earliest English-language cookbooks with Jewish food. These items provide the earliest record of Jewish food in America (and England) available for the public. These are not charity cookbooks. Rather, they are commerically available, meaning they are produced not for a specific community, but for anyone who is interested in them.
