When I was growing up, family occasions were always at my Grandmother Ada’s house. She was the matriarch of our family. I remember my Grandmother was always a class act. Grandma otherwise known as our beloved, Bubbe, always did the holiday dinners, adults at one table and us kids at another. Unfortunately, I never made it to to the big table while she was still with us. I can still remember her beautiful holiday tables. She always went all out. In my heart, I know Grandma is the reason I make such a big deal out of family dinners and making sure the table is absolutely flawless. I approach each occasion as a new canvas and an opportunity to be creative.
Success in my family, is not judged by careers or bank accounts, but by how well you can make a brisket. Really, it is true. Grandma’s brisket is the our gold standard. I achieved the pinnacle of success when I had almost my entire family over and the brisket was absolute perfection. I could not keep my uncles and brother away from the brisket long enough to serve it formally. They kept stealing pieces and saying, “Kid, you’d make Ada proud!”
