1897-1949 my grandma
This is a collection of recipes from the early 1900.
It is a miracle that it survived WWII.
Later, my grandma considered it important enough to take with her when she immigrated to Israel in 1947 and was allowed to take with her only what would fit in 1 small suitcase.

Each recipe was first transcribed from the original, Zevia's handwriting in Hungarian, by Ana Soreanu. Then, Translated to English and to Hebrew by me, Nurit Friedman.
Since the original was written by the "home cook" for her own use, it includes many shortcuts, reflecting what she did not need to write down for herself but would be missed by another person to follow.
To help other users, when applicable and possible I added a link to a similar recipe on the internet.
