For the East Coast transplant
With The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home, learn to make your own bagels, pastrami, challah, babka, and more! You’ll get generous sides of history and lore too, like
a wonderful ode to the deli by food historian and bookseller Nach Waxman. And not all the recipes are traditional. Backyard
barbecue pastrami—why not? A few lively pages and you’ll be swept up in deliphilia.
Gift to go with: A handsome jar of applesauce for the latkes on page 36. (Even better, buy your own copy and make Chunky Ginger Applesauce, page 38.)
