What a fantastic first episode about an important piece of Jewish cooking history! While I don't usually write reviews, I really had to laugh at one reviewer's comment about "loaded with lots of ads" and being a "money grab." Seriously??? Three small locally-owned businesses supporting a new project that is not only well-produced but lives up to the highest professional standards? Relax buddy. Ads are part of podcasting, especially independent podcasting, and for the first time I'm hearing true community support -- not to mention businesses that are actually relevant to the target audience. Bravo! Continued success for episode 2 and beyond. I'll be listening!
This is such a sweet and inspiring podcast! There was one point at the end where she really reminded me of my Bubbie - something about her tone! I look forward to learning more about carrying on the traditions of Jewish cuisine.
Can’t wait for more
LOVED this first episode! The Second Helpings cookbook is a staple in Jewish kitchens, and it was great to hear about how this tradition first got started. There can't be many fundraising projects that have had this kind of success! Looking forward to hearing more. Thank you Norene and team!!
