Save the Deli
In search of perfect pastrami, crusty rye and the heart of Jewish delicatessen.
Part culinary travelogue, part cultural history, Save the Deli is a must-read for anyone whose idea of perfect happiness is tucking into a pastrami on rye with a pickle on the side.
Corned beef. Pastrami. Brisket. Matzo balls. Knishes. Mustard and rye. In this book about Jewish delicatessens, spectacular failures, and ultimately the very future of its existence, David Sax goes deep into the world of the Jewish deli. He explores the histories and experiences of the immigrant counterman and kvetching customer examines the pressures that many delis face and enjoys the food that is deli's signature.
In New York and Chicago, Florida, L.A., Montreal, Toronto, Paris and beyond, Sax strives to answer the question, 'can Jewish deli thrive, and if so, how?' Funny, poignant, and impeccably written, Save the Deli is the story of one man's search to save a defining element of a culture - and the sandwiches - he loves.
