"Geflachtene Challah": Braided (?) Challah
One of the things I've been wanting to do for a long time is find some old Yiddish recipes and translate them into English and, if possible, work off of them. Luckily for all of us, YIVO has a digitized collection of cookbooks that anyone can browse and download from. (Unluckily for me, I don't know Yiddish, or even German...) The recipe below is screen-shotted from "Das Familien Koch-Boch", whose cover title in English is, incongruously, "Jewish Cookbook". The book is written by H. Braun and published in 1928 in New York.
