How do cookbooks make us who we are? The Settlement Cook Book was more than a set of recipes: it was a set of instructions about how to be American, it was an attempt to keep traditions alive, and it was a collection of wisdom for woman far away from their families and friends. The most successful of the community cookbooks which became popular in the 20th Century, Lizzie Kander's creation became the model for ways to disseminate knowledge across borders and generations.
