10 years ago, the historic community cookbook, Yesterday's Mavens, Today’s Foodies: Traditions in Northwest Jewish Kitchens, was published.

For a decade the cookbook has been a treasure of Jewish cooking in Washington and was so popular that only a few remain in inventory.

With your help a digital exhibit is possible. By creating a digital exhibit about the cookbook and Jewish food traditions of the Pacific Northwest, Yesterday’s Mavens, Today’s Foodies, can be available for a new generation of Washington cooks.

You can help - you can make this exhibit available again for everyone who enjoys food and wants to learn about the related history
