Hi Bubbe and Avrom! I stumbled across your podcast totally by accident and boy am I glad I did!
I think you guys are awesome. I just watched the first 3 episodes today and they were great. I can’t wait to make your sweet and sour meatballs, they looked so delicious.
Bubbe, can I adopt you please? I never knew my grandmother, she died when I was very young, and my mother passed away 6 years ago. My parents were divorced and I was raised by my father and I rarely saw my mother while she was alive. When I watch your show I feel like I am right in your kitchen and that you are the grandma I never had. I think you’re terrific. Avrom you are so lucky to have her. 🙂
Besides enjoying watching the cooking and getting the recipes, (which is what I need because I never learned to cook while I was growing up and I’m trying to make up for it now as a mom), I just love listening to Bubbe and what you have to say about everything. It feels like you’re talking to me and we are having a conversation together, even if it is a one-sided one. 😉 Also, I love your kitchen. It’s so “normal” looking, like what I’d expect my mom’s or grandma’s would look like. It’s not all fancy schmancy like all the cooking shows today have. Please, please, whatever you do to improve your show, do not change the kitchen. Please do not give Bubbe’s kitchen a brand spanking, hi-tech, up-to-date, state of the art, remodel. It wouldn’t feel as cozy and real as it does now if you change it. That’s almost half the charm and appeal of the show for me.
Avrom you should be commended for starting a project with your grandmother. Connection between the generations is something that seems to be almost completely lost these days. And we are all benefiting from your effort.
Thank you so much for this wonderful show. It’s much more than a cooking show. Even though we’ve never met just watching Bubbe cook and share her experiences and watching the two of you interact makes me feel so good. 🙂
Keep up the good work!
Thank you for your wonderful letter. You have really summed up what we are all about.
And don’t worry Avrom is going to improve productions but the kitchen will never ever be a part of the changes.
