Bobby Ochs, a personal home chef and first-generation American, has completed his new book "Bobby Ochs, Kid from the Bronx and Restaurant Partner to the Stars: From Kasha Varnishkes to Caviar to Humble Pie": a thought-provoking memoir of a bygone era following the varied and exciting life of the author, peppered with stories of his restaurant partnerships with the likes of Patrick Swayze, Britney Spears, Marla Maples, and Ashford & Simpson.
Ochs begins his story, "My parents were born in Poland but met and married in America. They each came to America in the early twentieth century, both immigrants from Poland. My father was born in 1895, my mother in 1900. They came at different times. He was Adolf (spelled with an f and became Adolph when he came to America) Ochs; she was Minnie Schwartz. I came across a letter after my father died from a woman my mother had written to while she was still in Poland, telling the woman that she would be living and working in New York and wanted to meet an eligible man. While my parents met and married in America, I don't know if the introduction was by the Dolly ('Hello, Dolly') Levi matchmaker my mother reached out to.
"These musings swirl through my mind as I'm nearing the eighth decade of my life (easier to say than I'm closing in on next year) and want to share the stories I have to tell growing up in the Bronx of the '40s and '50s and how having dreams and making them happen is what life's about. I'd like my daughter Samantha to understand her father, to know that he lived his life true to his belief that taking risks, following your heart and dreams, and not giving up is what life's about and that win or lose, you go for it. Giving up is not an option. If you fall down, you get up. Not getting up is the failure."
