Cookbook: The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home

Recipes of a Modern Jewish Delicatessen While a few highly-regarded delis are still going strong (Katz’s Delicatessen and Barney Greengrass in NYC, and Toronto’s Caplansky’s are at the top of my list), authentic Jewish delis are a dying breed in the United States.

Alternatives for the Grill Step away from the traditional burgers and brats, and celebrate the unofficial start of summer with one of these recipes.
