We are indeed fortunate that Barbara Wilson has shared with us her copy of a treasured family heirloom.

Due to the generous time and effort of three DVHH volunteers: Rose Vetter and Diane Lambing, we can view the recipes in English.  Those of you who can read German will be able to appreciate the skills of our two translators; and Rose Mary Keller Hughes for editing the entire submission.


The recipes are a compilation of those which originally appeared in issues of the ExtraPost.  It is the belief of DVHH, Inc. that the 150 bestbewährte Backrezepte cookbook was published prior to 1945 and is without an author for which DVHH, Inc. may give credit. DVHH, Inc. believes that the cookbook is now part of the public domain and that more than 50 years have passed since its initial publication. DVHH, Inc. does not seek any monetary gain from the reproduction of this book and it is strictly for informational purposes only.
