Growing up, our family occasions were always at my Grandmother Ada’s house. She was the matriarch of our family. And my Grandmother was always a class act. Grandma, otherwise known as our beloved, Bubbe, always did the holiday dinners, with adults at one table and all of us kids at another. Unfortunately, I never made it to to the big table while she was still with us. Because of her, I always make a big deal out of family dinners and I make sure the table is absolutely flawless. She always went to great lengths to make sure that everything was perfect. Like my Bubbe, I approach each occasion as a new canvas and an opportunity to be creative.
Success in my family is not judged by profession or money, but by how well you can make a brisket and the standards are pretty high. After all, Grandma’s brisket is the gold standard and tough to beat. That folks, is what it all boils down to. Really, it is true.
I knew that I reached the pinnacle of success when I had almost my entire family over and the brisket was absolute perfection. I could not keep my uncles and brother away from it long enough to serve it formally. They kept stealing pieces and saying, “Kid, you’d make Ada proud!”
