Iconic New York Jewish Food: A History and Guide with Recipes (American Palate) (Paperback)
Take a culinary journey through the foods, restaurants and businesses that define the cuisine of New York City and the Jewish immigrant experience... No trip to New York's five boroughs is complete without a hand sliced pastrami sandwich at Katz's deli or a bagel and lox with a schmear of cream cheese from Russ and Daughters. Any true New Yorker can tell you where to get the savoriest bowl of matzo ball soup or the crispest kosher dill pickle. Manischewitz wine became the icon it is today after Sammy Davis Jr. became its offical spokesperson. Join author June Hersh as she reveals the iconic Jewish foods, establishments and products that left their imprint on the taste buds of New Yorkers and the world.
