Hinde Amchanitzki

Author of Yiddish Cookbooks

Born in Russia.A widowed housewife who emigrated around 1895 and died in Beth Israel Hospital.
Her last address was listed as 156 East Broadway, a four-story building on the Lower East Side near Rutgers Street that now houses a Chinese supermarket.
In 1901, she wrote the first Yiddish cookbook published in America. A copy is in the Library of Congress.
"Manual of How to Cook and Bake" in its introduction says 148 recipes presented (including "chicken zup mit macaroni") were consumed in the finest Jewish homes in Russia, Galicia, France, England and America.Her 45 years' experience in cooking, baking, frying and roasting taught her to prepare all meals very economically, and that the meals protect children from dyspepsia and other adult diseases.
A few years ago John Lankenau was walking his dog and happened upon her gravestone leaning on a streets of New York,engraved with H. Amchanitzky he kept it at his apartment and in his garden until the mystery finally unraveled .Bruce Slovin, chairman of the Center for Jewish History will pay to reunite her stone with her plot in the cemetery.
