Article Title: We Love “Feed Me Bubbe”
“Here’s a Mother’s Day weekend must do: Gather round the laptop and watch an episode of Feed Me Bubbe on Blip.tv.
According to yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, Bayla “Bubbe” Sher and her grandson Avrom Honig came up with the idea of creating an online video show as a way to preserve family recipes. Now they have a loyal audience and over 200,000 views of their videos.
Cooks aren’t watching Bubbe, Yiddish for “grandmother”, just for sentimental reasons. She shares practical tips — roll the side of a can over walnuts to crush them, try to cook with “whatever is on sale at the grocery store” — and teaches a Yiddish word of the day in each episode.
Bubbe gives cooks confidence. She often reminds viewers: “It doesn’t have to be fancy, very simple.”
Ready for “the old-fashioned taste: simple, easy, delicious”? Spend some time in Bubbe’s Kosher kitchen.”
