Busy In Brooklyn

Raised in a kosher home in Brooklyn, Chanie Apfelbaum grew up eating traditional Jewish foods like gefilte fish, stuffed cabbage and matza ball soup. Today, she lives just a few blocks from her childhood home where she revisits family favorites and reinvents traditional holiday dishes. Chanie's creative twists on old time cuisine prove that kosher fare is anything but old-fashioned. With four little ones in tow, she celebrates her heritage one dish at a time, creating healthy recipes with a modern flair and Middle Eastern vibe.
