A Treasure for My Daughter
On matzo ball soup and maternal love
Passover is upon us, and what better time to reflect on a Jewish mother's love for her children? Our MILK highlight of the week is editor Isabela's audio story, A Treasure for My Daughter, where she explores growth and sacrifice through the lens of her mom's non-kosher kitchen (and fluffy matzo balls). Dig in, eat on, and celebrate the eternal complexity that is food and family.
This podcast features writing and research by Isabela Vera; sound editing by Isabela Vera & Zoë Johnson, and original music by the Electric Muffin Research Kitchen. You can also listen to it on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.

For reference, here is my mom and I enjoying French delights on a trip to Paris that we took in March 2005, lieu of my having a bat mitzvah.
