The Jewish contribution to American cooking
There's an exhibit going on now through December 8 at the Hatcher Graduate Library at the University of Michigan. It's entitled "American Foodways: The Jewish Contribution."
Janice Bluestein Longone is the co-curator of the university's new exhibit.
She has spent more than four decades creating a 25,000-item library of American culinary literature -- one of the largest, most acclaimed private collections in the world.
But, Jan says she was surprised by the outpouring of support she received from the Jewish community.
