The Settlement Cook Book Project is an ongoing series, created in coordination with Jewish Museum Milwaukee, celebrating The Settlement Cook Book, authored by Milwaukee native, Lizzie Black Kander. First published in 1901 in part to help Americanize new immigrants, The Settlement Cook Book is one of the most successful charity cookbooks, with over 40 editions in print and 2 million copies sold. The second installment in the series will be held at the Historical Society’s downtown location next Thursday, the 27th.
