My mom's all upset and is trembling because her indispensable upscale "Jewish" supermarket, Gelson's has closed -- It might as well have been another 9.0 Northridge earthquake. Gelson's is the only place in this porno capital of the world part of the valley where you can get Schmaltz. You may be familiar with the word Schmaltz as an adjective for slimy poor fiction and drama, dripping with cheap sentiment. Schmaltz is also chicken fat.
Jews love Schmaltz, at least my dad does. He puts it on nearly everything...matzo balls, Gentile bread...with salt...you name it. It is an essential condiment to my dad.
Where else do you find Schmaltz? Sure on Jersey Shore and the Real Housewives of New Jersey. But what about here? Simi Valley adjacent? Please help us with any suggestions before my dad's cholesterol level drops to dangerously low levels. Kvetchingly yours, Vickie.
