Episode Summary

EDIT
David Sax: Save the Deli
AIRED:
As a life-long deli obsessive, David Sax was understandably alarmed by the state of Jewish delicatessen - a cuisine that once sat at the very center of Jewish life had become endangered by assimilation, homogenization, and health food trends. And so Sax set out on a journey across the U.S. and around the world in search of authentic delicatessen.As chronicled in his new book, Save the Deli: In Search of Perfect Pastrami, Crusty Rye, and the Heart of Jewish Delicatessen, Sax investigates everything deli - how it's made, who makes it best, and where to go for particular dishes.Sax speaks about how Jewish people view deli cuisine in relation to their health, weight, and bodies. He's interviewed by Ezra Klein, a blogger for The Washington Post. Join this rallying cry for a new generation of food lovers!moreless
