Abstract:

The collection consists of a bound volume and sheets of loose paper containing the handwritten recipes of Bertha Greenebaum Haas (1861-1927) Bertha Haas compiled the recipes in the cookbook with her daughter Alice Haas Lilienthal (1885-1972). Showing that the family cooks took advantage of local ingredients that they could only find in the San Francisco Bay Area, one of their recipes for chocolate caramels included a pound of Ghirardelli chocolate. The cookbook also contains recipes for foods that were not kosher, including mussels, oysters, and shrimp.
