Feed Me Bubbe Is The Jewish Grandmother You Never Had But Always Wanted
We all need food and we eat it everyday. There’s no shortage of the number of cooking web shows, recipes, and cookbooks available on the Internet and in stores. We hear celebrities talk about new diets and we look forward to the traditional pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. It’s a part of our lives and our heritage in many ways. A new web show is cashing in on this idea with the always wonderful, Bubbe.
Bubbe is a Jewish grandmother (the grandmother of the producer actually) who decided to create a web show where she shares her traditional Jewish snacks and meals with the rest of the world. In one episode she introduces viewers to her vegetarian stew. In another it’s a delicious brisket. Either way, you can’t lose with Bubbe. A personal favorite of mine would be the three episodes devoted to chicken soup (delicious!). If you’re looking to find food that tastes good and is reminicist of a culture of people then don’t look anywhere else. Bubbe has it all ready for you.

What is most fascinating about this web show is the topic. Most cooking shows focus on more specific countries rather than a group of people. This makes for a unique show. However, the most unique aspect of the show is its realism. Bubbe is not only a very real person, but she is everything that she represents. She isn’t pretending to be Jewish or a grandmother. She isn’t pretending to be a high-end chef, but rather a Jewish grandmother who is opening her kitchen and her homemade recipes to the world. It’s enticing and it separates Feed Me Bubbe from all of the other cooking web shows. Watching Bubbe make her signature dishes is like watching your own grandmother make hers.
If you can’t get enough of the web show, Bubbe has even created her own book filled with the best recipes so you can make Jewish dishes any time you like. For some, the show may be too slow-moving, but I find it to be helpful in understanding all of the aspects of the recipes. Of course, Bubbe is full of her own little surprises and is a very entertaining host. This a cooking show that actually takes you into the home of Bubbe so you feel as though you are cooking right beside her or better yet—one of her grandchildren waiting at the table. Try out one of Bubbe’s recipes, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
