A few of you know Amy from her Jewish themed cooking blog, What Jew Wanna Eat, but did you also know that she works as a demo chef at a grocery store? I shop at this store quite often, and Amy is always there cooking her heart out. Sometimes I harass her, sometimes I don’t. Obviously I did this week because here’s a photo of her in her hairnet! She’s a good sport and a nice person who dreams of putting Jewish cooking in the spotlight. In fact, she recently entered a contest in which the prize is meeting mentors and obtaining help in growing a small business. Amy is in the finals and very close, so if you have two seconds (and you like Jewish cooking), vote for Amy! It’s very simple. You just go to Daily Candy, scroll down to the third row Food & Drink category, and click on the little picture of Amy. Note: for the vote to go through, you DO have to vote for someone in each category, so check out the other contestants too.
After you vote, reward yourself with a batch of Bubbe’s Famous Brownies. I haven’t tried them yet because I’ve been too busy trying every other brownie on the planet, but the next brownie I make will be Bubbe’s.
