DVHH Announcement: Vintage Banat Cookbook Online - Happy Mother's Day!
We have a special treat, a Mother's Day gift to all the ladies (maybe some guys) on the List and as a remembrance of our Donauschwaben mothers and grandmothers who make their kitchens the warm and loving and marvelously scented haven for us.
We are indeed fortunate that Barbara Wilson has shared with us her copy of a treasured family heirloom, a vintage Banat cookbook titled "150 bestbewährte Backrezepte" - 150 Proven Baking Recipes. Thank you Barbara!
Due to the generous time and effort of two of other DVHH members, Rose Vetter and Diane Lambing, we can view the recipes in English. Those of you who can read German will be able to appreciate the skills of our two translators.
What is so special about this book is that with each recipe provides a submitters name and the village/town they lived in Banat. We have provided a handy cross-reference index to help you in locating a name/village/recipe. Marie Lutye of Temeswar came in first place for submitting the most recipes, 2nd- Marie Scherer of Lugosch, 3rd- Käthe Steiris Hatzfeld, 3rd. Let us know if you locate a relative of yours among these submitters!
This production has been a 2 month long process, what a task! I would especially like to thank Rose Mary, Rose and Diana for their efforts in translating and editing (lots of long hours!) in order to meet our goal, to have it ready for Mother's Day. What great people we have among us!
You must check it out! Enjoy.....
Happy Mother's Day to all!
