Watch as Irma Zigas cooks with her grandson Caleb, preparing her own take on Passover brisket (here's her recipe). There's love, there's respect and teaching, there are disagreements over chopping onions—it's family. Caleb and Irma aren't kosher, and neither is this recipe, but Irma's been making this brisket since her anti-Vietnam, pro-women's-rights activist days, when she needed to bring the family together but couldn't spend hours in the kitchen.
