Tenement Talk: A Headstone, A Cookbook, and A Nosh
When an artist stumbled upon a century-old headstone on East 4th Street, New York Times journalist Sam Roberts knew that it had a story to tell. Roberts discovered that it was created for Hinde Amchanitski, an immigrant entrepreneur who authored America’s first Yiddish cookbook. For this event, Roberts joins author Jane Ziegelman and the Tenement Museum’s Annie Polland to unravel the story of the headstone and sample some of Amchanitski’s delectable recipes.
