The Settlement Cookbook by Lizzie Black Kander

Lizzie Black Kander, author of The Settlement Cookbook, was born in Milwaukee, on May 28, 1858.[156 years ago yesterday] Like many middle-class Jewish women of her time, she was deeply involved in Progressive Era reform movements that sought to aid and Americanize immigrants. Kander first became involved in local reform efforts in 1878, when she joined Milwaukee’s Ladies Relief Sewing Society. Under Kander’s leadership, the Society evolved into the Milwaukee Jewish Mission. It was as president of “the Settlement,” Milwaukee’s first settlement house, a multi-purpose reform organization modeled on Jane Addams’s Hull House, that Kander made her most lasting contribution.
