From Siberia to Texas: Uncovering My Family’s Immigration Story One Recipe at a Time
BY MARY KALTENBERG
@ VOL 33
ON MAY 22, 2017
Mary Kaltenberg best introduces her story herself:
"It started during a blizzard storm the first week I arrived back in the United States early 2016. As an activity for my mom and I during this cold snowy day, we gathered recipes and started compiling them into a cohesive cookbook. I asked questions about the origination of the recipe and through each recipe lived a different story. Translating and transcribing developed into a documentation of our family history, rich of funny, suspenseful and adventurous stories. One recipe at a time I uncovered the story of my Jewish, Russian, Polish family - how they became a family, survived in Siberia, were deported and stripped of citizenship and the humor of eventually adapting to American culture."
