Welcome to What Jew Wanna Eat! Your source for home cooked (sometimes) kosher goodness. I have always enjoyed cooking and baking, but needed a new goal, a challenge, to get back to my culinary roots. So, I called up Bubbe Eleanor and pleaded for her to send me her best recipes. Stat! Growing up, I loved cooking with my Bubbe- braiding challah bread, rolling out rugleach, the works! Bubbe is not one to dally, and imagine my delight when a few days later I had hundreds of glorious recipes in my mailbox. Brisket, latkes, rugelach, challah, kugel and more! Mazel! So I stocked my kitchen with schmaltz and matzo meal, and have made it my goal to try one recipe a week, with my own personal twist on each. I loved cooking these recipes so much, I quit my corporate job and went to culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Austin. Now I spend my days teaching cooking classes, developing recipes and food writing. My recipes have been featured in Daily Candy, Bon Appetit, The Today Show and others. In 2012 I was a finalist in Daily Candy’s Start Small, Go Big Contest.
No matter your religion, I hope you enjoy these tasty recipes. I know Jew will!
