Our partnerships coordinator, Nara Sandberg, wrote for Grok Nation about how cooking with her grandmother inspired a lifelong love of home cooking and family meals:
My great-grandmother, Sarah Schecht, was an avid home baker and cook. In 1976, Craig Claiborne visited her home and featured her and her challah recipe in his New York Times article Sorcery From an Oven in Bensonhurst: Challah at Its Best. This love of home cooking and family meals eaten together was passed down to my grandmother and later, to me. I learned how to cook at a young age with my grandmother, and grew up eating meals together as a family as often as possible.
