Recipes of My 15 Grandmothers
Recipes of My 15 Grandmothers is a collection of recipes and stories from the times of the Crypto-Jews — who were hiding and pretending to be Catholic during the Spanish Inquisition while practicing their Judaism underground — through the present.
The grandmothers of the family devised clever ways to disguise the fact that they were keeping kosher while appearing to be eating pork. Until modern times, the family pretended to be devout Catholics, yet passed many of the Jewish customs on, sometimes in the form of these recipes, their true legacy. This collection was found recently, hidden away at Genie Milgrom’s mother’s house.
This program is being brought to us by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami.
