Jewish Bay-Area Chef Wins Chopped
Personal chef Heidi Rae Weinstein is the latest Jewish cuisinier from the Bay Area to win on Chopped, the Food Network’s popular cooking competition, our colleague Alix Wall reports in JWeekly.
“I come from a family of foodies,” Weinstein said. “It’s in my DNA.”
Her grandfather owned Bodenstein’s Jewish Bakery in Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood, which sold traditional Jewish baked goods like babka, mandelbrot and rye bread, while her father managed a kosher mustard and vinegar company called Baker Brands.
