I ran across Bubbe’s blog, Feed me Bubbe, one evening curled
up on my couch watching a Frontline special on PBS. Her charismatic,
larger than life personality complemented by 83 years of knowledge in Kosher
cooking is something truly worth viewing. Bubbe’s blog features shows,
recipes, an online store, Yiddish words, and an ask Bubbe page for readers. Bubbe is
indeed a Julia Child of Jewish cooking.

I was lucky enough to snag an interview with Bubbe, Avrom
(grandson and producer), and Zadie (husband and production assistant).
