Farm to Table Vilna Experience

This is one event we hope you didn’t miss- Farm to Table Vilna Experience, centered around The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook by Fania Lewando, proprietor of a popular vegetarian restaurant in Vilna, Lithuania. Originally published in Yiddish in 1938, Lewando’s cookbook was rediscovered more than half a century later after Fania died in World War II. A vegetarian cookbook of this size was groundbreaking at the time it was published.

Thanks to Margi Langa Kahn who recreated some of Lewando’s recipes.  This event was sponsored by Crown Center, The Holocaust Museum & Learning Center and the Brodsky Library of Jewish Federation of St. Louis.
