Additional Details

Description: When the need for a fourth edition of Food 'N Folklore became evident, it was decided to expand the collection of recipes. This edition, Food 'N Customs, has an index to make the book more usable and explores customs because many foods were eaten only on certain holidays. Many of these customs are associated with German oriented areas and are still used today. In this edition, the German names associated with the recipes are given. 

Dozens of Germans from Russia ethnic sections of other cookbooks from Germans from Russia areas were studied as were cookbooks from Germany, Russia, Romania, and Poland to ascertain what types of food were common in the areas where our people lived. This Food 'N Folklore Cookbook contains the recipes of its Black Sea German ancestry. The recipes presented here are dishes passed from mother to daughter for generations. Some have been in the family for over 200 years. Only old recipes were retained for this edition, but some modern ingredients may have been substituted. Details of how the recipes were prepared is provided in hopes that future generations will attempt some of these family tested recipes.
