New York Times journalist Sam Roberts recounts a story he broke in 2010, about a man who found a tombstone on the sidewalk on the Lower East Side. Turns out, it belonged to the grave of immigrant Hinde Amchanitski, a woman who wrote the first Yiddish cookbook in the U.S. Author Jane Ziegelman (97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement) and the museum’s VP of education and programs, Annie Polland, join Roberts. You’ll also be able to sample some of the food outlined in Amchanitski’s recipe book.
