No meat, oy! Really? Really.

No meat, oy! Really? Really.

FROM ROSH HASHANAH FOODS

“IT HAS long been established by the highest medical authorities that food from fruits and vegetables is far healthier and more suitable for the human organism than food made from meat,” is how Fania Lewando opens her plainly titled Vegetarian Cookbook, in an introduction, “To the Housewife: A Few Words and Practical Advice.”

The term “housewife” is a give-away to readers who may have thought that this is just the newest in the recent plethora of health and lifestyle oriented cookbooks. In fact, Vegetarian Cookbook was published in Vilna, Lithuania, in 1938 and its original language of publication was Vilna Jewry’s vernacular: Yiddish. The progressive collection of 400-odd recipes has recently been republished by Schocken Books as The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook.
