Who's Your Bubbie? Reflect. Share. Eat.
Tickets are still available for Beyond Bubbie on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Al Green Theatre. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate our bubbies in an evening dedicated to food, family, and the stories that link them together.
“Everyone's bubbie has a recipe, and every bubbie's recipe holds a great story. They tend to be forgotten if they're not written down, and with so many bubbies working off fading memories, tattered index cards, and worn synagogue cookbooks, we figured it was time to put out a call for the recipes and stories of bubbies everywhere,” said the event’s host, James Beard award-winning journalist and food writer David Sax, who has organized similar events in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Storytellers include chef Anthony Rose of Rose and Sons and recently-opened Big Crow; Alida Solomon, chef/owner of Tutti Matti Restaurant; Dino Venasio of Ben & Izzy’s; Judy Perly of Free Times Café; gourmet health guru-Rose Riesman, CBC Food columnist Sarah Elton; playwright Sean Dixon; and Denise Booth an Anishnawbe (Ojibway) whose reserve is Sagamok Anishnawbek First Nations. The Varsity Jews, the tongue in cheek Jewish a-cappella singing sensation will perform their soon-to-be classic, “Mandelbrodt”, a parody of Michael Jackson's “Black or White”. Noshes to follow the program—enjoy a warm cup of traditional Yemenite coffee by Project HaMotzi. Smoked meat sliders from Ben and Izzy’s Deli will also be served (Kashrut observed).
