By Bob Kann

A Recipe for Success: Lizzie Kander and her Cookbook celebrates the life of Milwaukee's early 20th-century culinary wonder. This book will introduce young readers to a remarkable young woman who made a difference in the lives of the early immigrants in Wisconsin.

Kander originally created "The Settlement Cookbook" to assist young Jewish immigrant girls in cooking nutritious "American-style" meals for their families. Since its publication, several generations of household cooks have been raised on the delicious recipes of the cookbook. Proceeds from the sale of the original cookbook helped build Milwaukee's first settlement house and later the city's Jewish Community Center.

The century-old cookbook is still in print today. This is a delightful biography, filled with humorous asides, wonderful period illustrations, and of course recipes!
