Arleen Sorkin Brisket

submitted by Arleen Sorkin

I am the granddaughter of a kosher caterer. When people would ask my grandfather for the recipe for the coleslaw to the brisket to the kreplach, his answer was always “Does Macy’s tell Gimbels their secrets?” The truth is, he didn't know the recipes, my grandmother did all the cooking.
