baleboosta
 n.— «She was, in the truest sense, a baleboosta, a Yiddish term meaning a remarkable cook and “boss of the kitchen.” My father tells stories of her legendary cooking: Rolling out enough dough to cover the kitchen table to make homemade soup noodles, roasting a chicken to perfection, making matzo balls as light as feathers.» —“Grandma’s Rosh Hashana cake was a honey” by Andrea Abel Star Tribune (Minneapolis, Minnesota) SEpt. 13, 2006.
