7 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches, 334 pages, local advertisements; white oil cloth boards are rubbed and worn with a bit of soiling corners wearing through, creases to spine cloth, internal hinges cracked at end papers, newspaper and magazine recipes clipped and pasted into preliminary blank pages resulting in tanned squares on title page, occasional soiling to pages, additional recipes occasionally hand written into blank pages provided for this and rear blank pages, binding a little tender but holding. The first edition of the Neighborhood Cook Book was issued in December, 1912 and exhausted within ten months. So great was the demand from all parts of the United States, that the Council decided to issue a second edition in 1914. An interesting window into the incorporation of local American culture into the Jewish immigrant experience. At the same time rabbis in Eastern Europe were requiring kosher certification on food packages sent to their regions, many Jews were integrating, adapting and modifying kosher ritual to fit their modern lives in America. The Neighborhood Cookbook contained many non-kosher dishes. An entire chapter, "Shell Fish and Shell Fish Entrees," dedicated to local seafood items such as clams, oysters, crab and lobster, all of which were forbidden according to the laws of kashrut. The integration of Oregonian cuisine, including non-kosher shellfish, reveals the integration of middle and upper class Jews into Portland culture. Most of the clipped recipes at the beginning of the book are for baked desserts such as cakes and cookies, while the hand written recipes at the end include two pickle recipes.
