Bringing Old World Quality and Values
In 1936 my grandmother Rebecca and my mom Ruth arrived at New York's Ellis Island from Eastern Europe. Back then they had moved from Vienna in 1912 to Lublin, Poland, seeking a better life and to make breads and treats.
Some of my fondest memories were when my mother told me she would help Grandma roll out the dough for her buttery, delicious treats. She always told her, "make whatever you make with simple, pure ingredients and have happy thoughts while you're mixing them up and making a mess".
The lessons my mother shared, taught me that when you infuse your work with love and joy, no-one can figure it out,... but it just tastes better!
