Beyond Bubbie, an interactive website and community cookbook, will launch on Tuesday November 13 at the Skirball Cultural Center. Pulitzer Prize-winning LA Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold joins James Beard Award-winning author David Sax, along with top LA chefs Susan Feniger of STREET and The Border Grill, Roxana Jullapat of Cooks County, and Micah Wexler of Mezze for a chat with Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW's Good Food. Enjoy the storytelling, along with some nibbles (included in the ticket price). Attendees are invited to bring a beloved recipe with them - it will earn you an entry in a drawing for gift certificates from Mezze, STREET, and Cooks County, and be highlighted on, an innovative site that aims to be a space for the preservation of sacred recipes. While "Bubbie" is Yiddish for "grandmother," the site is multicultural, and in this case a "bubbie" could also refer to a loved one, friend or neighbor.

Skirball Cultural Center says…

Beyond Bubbie is an interactive community cookbook and a place to share the stories and memories connected to these recipes. You may be wondering: What is a Bubbie? Traditionally, a Bubbie (the Yiddish word for grandmother) is Jewish and of Eastern European origin. You know the type; endless supply of floral print housecoats, hot in the winter and cold in the summer, careful with her money, but generous with kisses and pinches of the cheek. She is also a culinary dynamo, able to luck chickens and roll matzo into magic balls. Beyond Bubbie embraces today’s eclectic multicultural world, and offers that a "Bubbie" could just as easily be a favorite uncle, beloved family friend or next door neighbor; their trademark recipes might be Moroccan cigars, Korean short ribs, or vegetarian couscous. What makes them a Bubbie in our book is the love they've poured into these dishes, and the memories you’ve created over
