Avrom Honig is the co-author, with his bubbe, of Feed Me Bubbe!orig­i­nal­ly a hit YouTube series, and now a book. He will be blog­ging all week for MyJew­ish­Learn­ing and the Jew­ish Book Council‘s Vis­it­ing Scribe.

Greet­ings, every­one! Let me first intro­duce myself: My name is Avrom, and I am co-author on an excit­ing new book based on a hit online and tele­vised cook­ing show enti­tled Feed Me Bubbe. On the show, my bubbe works on mak­ing her fam­i­ly favorite dish­es. (By the way, if you don’t know, Bubbe is the Yid­dish word for Grand­moth­er.”)

When we first start­ed out, I was just try­ing to make my mark on the Hol­ly­wood indus­try, try­ing to find a job. As any good appli­cant knows hav­ing a demo reel is the key to suc­cess. After hav­ing a fam­i­ly dis­cus­sion, we final­ly decid­ed that what would make the most sense is for me to take a cam­era and film Bubbe mak­ing her favorite food at home.

Well the response was incred­i­ble and before you know it we are find­ing our­selves work­ing on a book. To make every­thing even more excit­ing we had been told that Ess­dras M. Suarez would be our pho­tog­ra­ph­er. Ess­dras is a Pulitzer Prize-win­ning pho­tog­ra­ph­er (go to http://​www​.ess​drasm​suarez​.com where you can see some of his incred­i­ble oth­er projects).

It was quite an unusu­al expe­ri­ence to see my bubbe being treat­ed as a mod­el dur­ing the entire pho­to­shoot. If you could only have seen it for your­self! Well, actu­al­ly, you can. Being a video tech­nol­o­gy enthu­si­ast, I decid­ed that over these next few blog posts we will include some spe­cial videos made just for you. You may even see some spe­cial guests along the way — so stay tuned for blogs and videos!

Avrom Honig and Bubbe’s new book, Feed Me Bubbe!, is now avail­able. Come back all week to read his posts for MyJew­ish­Learn­ing and the Jew­ish Book Council‘s author blog­ging series.
