Senior citizens are taking making their presence felt and posting videos. Take this Jewish grandma who decided that even young people might be interested in what she has to offer….Maybe some chicken soup or some mandlebread?
Bayla Scher’s, who prefers to be called Bubbe, monthly podcast is called “Feed Me Bubbe.” In each episode, she serves up a favorite recipe (chicken soup and matzoh balls, tzimis, luckshen kugel, etc.) as well as a Yiddish word of the day —her way of instilling Yiddishkeit (Jewish culture) along with the culinary spiel.
Log on to YouTube and see video of the skateboarder who survived a harrowing 45-foot plunge during an X-games competition, or singer Beyonce tripping and falling during a recent concert in Orlando, Fla. Or go online and find 80-year-old “Bubbe” Scher dispensing recipes for her trademark jellie jammies. “Feed Me Bubbe” was the brainstorm of her 23-year-old grandson, Avrom Honig, who lives with his parents on the other side of Worcester. He wanted to do a podcast about something — anything — just for the experience, and came up with the idea of videotaping his grandmother in her kitchen talking about food — her food. Grandmother and grandson have taped and posted a dozen shows in the year since “Feed Me Bubbe” began last summer. Cumulatively, the show has had more than 200,000 hits, and has gained quite a loyal following, as revealed in some of the comments on YouTube. Stay tuned. The videotaped wisdom and experiences of experienced Americans are coming soon to a Web site near you. (abcnews.go)
