filled cucumber 1928 vs 2011

guess what? i found this raw recipe book from 1928, simply called "die rohkost küche", written by lisbeth ankenbrand in a secondhand bookshop!

raw food was popular in gemany around the early 1900s. dr bircher benner had his famous clinic in switzerland and the lebensreform movement brought reformhäuser (basically health stores, still selling supplements and organic foods) into bigger cities.

"gefüllte gurke", filled cucumber 1928

so almost 100 years later the recipe still rocks (although i tweaked it a little)


  1. That's really cool!!

    And it looks really delicious...now and then!
