Tessie and Pearlie

A Granddaughter's Story

A touching story of two Jewish grandmothers—Tessie and Pearlie—who share their wisdom, knowledge, and recipes to die for.

In their touching story, two Jewish grandmothers—Tessie and Pearlie—share their wisdom, knowledge, and recipes to die for. Still close to their immigrant past and hardened by wars, the Depression, and discrimination, they teach us about living. And dying. They are the last of a breed—a generation passing but not likely to be forgotten.
