Bessie H: Your Life in Food

We saved the best and the most historic interview for last. Regular readers of Tasty Touring might already know and love Adam’s Bubbe from”The Bubbe Chronicles: Eating with Bubbe.” The most common word to describe Bubbe by her family and friends is “Amazing” and that is certainly true. At 99, she reads books by the dozen a month, enjoys spending time with loved ones, and has a great attitude about life in general. I wish for all of you that you are in as great shape as Bubbe and to …

Lenny H: Questions on Your Life in Food

Adam’s dad Lenny is a great cook. It blew my mind when I first visited Paula and Lenny in Houston because growing up, the kitchen was mom’s domain and at the Holzband’s, it’s most definitely “Lenny’s Kitchen.” As you may have read in Adam’s post, Lenny would prepare holiday meals for dozens, brunches for Adam and his friends, and quick chicken roasts for neighbors going through a rough patch.
Next time I’m sick, I’ll be asking Adam to cook me up some Gogol Mogol after reading about Lenny’s Bubbes’ recipe below. …

Anyone who has spent time with Adam knows immediately that he is passionate about food and cooking. We love grocery shopping, cooking, and eating together and I’m so lucky to share this adventure in life and food with him. He is a wonderful storyteller and I hope this is one of many guest blog posts to come.

Paula H: Questions on Your Life in Food

Since Sylvia’s “life in food” kind of left off with Paula’s birth, it seemed to make sense to move to Paula’s stories next. Like the sweet and selfless mother that she is, when I asked her for old photos, she sent LOTS of her son Adam, but few of herself.

If you were given a dollar to buy treats when you were a kid, what would you buy?
Don’t remember being given a dollar to buy treats, but if I did, …

Sylvia O: Questions on Your Life in Food

As you may know if you have been keeping tabs, I started a series called “Questions on Your Life in Food” last week with my family and am continuing this week with Adam’s family.
We recently spent a weekend in Tulsa, OK with his maternal grandmother, Sylvia (AKA Grandma), where I interviewed her about some of these questions. Others, she answered in an e-mail until she had to sign off to head out to her poker game with the ladies.
