Judy Gold: Challah, stuffed cabbage, chocolate pudding
Comedian Judy Gold’s email signature reads “Sent while thinking about my next meal”…but what about her last meal?! A stand-up comic for nearly 40 years, Judy won two Emmy’s for writing and producing The Rosie O’Donnell Show, has countless TV acting credits and, the highest honor of all, a bagel sandwich named after her at New York City’s famous, and now defunct, Carnegie Deli.
When describing her last meal, Judy speaks passionately, occasionally emitting a guttural moan of pleasure at the mere thought of one of her favorite foods. She craves a procession of comforting and sentimental dishes she grew up eating in her mother’s New Jersey kitchen. Judy was raised kosher, but as an adult she’s slowly welcomed forbidden foods like shellfish and bacon onto her plate.
To properly explain kosher law, host Rachel Belle welcomes Rabbi Menachen Genack to the show. He’s the CEO of OU Kosher, the world’s oldest and largest kosher certification agency, responsible for giving products like Heinz Ketchup and Coca Cola the official kosher stamp of approval.
