When I was growing up, family occasions were always at my Grandmother Ada’s house. She was the matriarch of our family and her brisket was legendary.
I remember my Grandmother was always a class act. Grandma, otherwise known as our beloved, Bubbe, always hosted the holiday dinners with adults at one table and us kids at another. Even though, I never made it to to the big table while she was alive, her beautiful table settings are something that I will never forget. In fact, Grandma is the reason that I make such a big deal out of family dinners. Because of her, I always make sure that my table is absolutely flawless. I fell like every occasion is a new opportunity to make my table as beautiful as hers.
My family does not judge your success by your career or how much money you make, but by how well you can make a brisket. That folks, is what it all boils down to. Really, it is true. Every single brisket is judged against Grandma’s. The pinnacle of success for me came when I had almost my entire family over and my brisket was absolute perfection. I could not keep my uncles and brother away from the brisket long enough to serve it formally. They kept stealing pieces and saying, “Kid, you’d make Ada proud!”
