Eileen Jacobs

I had the pleasure of working with Miguel at The Kosher Gourmet and we enjoyed ribbing each other and he made fun of me when I wanted something outlandish but he always tried to accommodate me. He was a kind and caring man who will be missed. I feel your pain yet I can't help but picture Miguel and my late husband (Z'L') comparing recipes, just joking or talking the talk that they did so many many times. Please accept my condolences and wishes that you are blessed with fond memories.
