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.)
