Delicious and Dairy
When in LA a few years ago, we had the pleasure of meeting Leah Adler at The Milky Way −her kosher, dairy restaurant on Pico Boulevard in the center of “kosher” Beverly Hills. Aside from enjoying Leah’s delicious dairy dishes, including her famous blintzes, why was this visit special? It was her welcoming greeting, her non–ending smile, and her extreme pride when she speaks of her famous son; none other than director/producer Steven Spielberg.
At that time Leah, who is now 96, still worked six full days weekly, making restaurant customers feel like special guests, or should I say newly found friends! By the way, framed posters of Steven’s acclaimed films hang on the back walls of the restaurant. W certainly hope to return to the restaurant on our next trip to LA.
We thank Leah for sharing several of her recipes with KosherEye. And, Leah, “til 120” in good health!
