David Sax, the Toronto-born writer behind Save the Deli, has won a James Beard Foundation literature award.
In the book, subtitled In Search of Perfect Pastrami, Crusty Rye, and the Heart of Jewish Delicatessen, Sax explores the world of the Jewish deli. He ate at more than 140 delis, including Yitz’s and Centre Street Deli in the Greater Toronto Area.
“Our family picnics were mostly deli food,” Sax told Shalom Life in an interview. “When my parents came to visitors’ day at summer camp, they brought deli. My father had a deep and abiding love for the stuff, being a dyed-in-the-wool Montreal Jew, and that seeped into the fabric of my being.”
The James Beard Award is given to food and drink talents in the industry.
