Mayim Bailik Shares Mother’s Thanksgivukkah Menu

From Hebrew alphabet soup to Pumpkin Squash Kreplach, the sitcom star’s food enthusiast mother plans a well-rounded feast for Thanksgivukkah.

Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bailik recently shared her mother’s vegan Thanksgivukkah menu on the Jewish parenting website Kveller. Bailik’s mother, Ema, prepared cruelty-free edible options that cover appetizer, entrée, soup, and dessert courses. Menu items range from typical holiday fare such as cranberry sauce, cornbread stuffing, and vegetables with dip, to traditional Jewish dishes such as Pumpkin Squash Kreplach and Latkes. At the end of her post, Bailik notes the most important part of Thanksgiving—the thanks itself—and pays tribute to her mother who passed on a passion for food to her daughter: “I am thankful that my mother takes such pride and joy in food preparation, especially since she grew up in a home where food and survival were intimately linked, money was scarce, and joy was sometimes even scarcer,” she writes. “Thank you.”
