Historical information on the popularity and origins of the deli.From the Inside Flap:
Deli food is simple food from Eastern Europe, Lithuania, Russia, and Hungary. Many items on menus today were developed out of necessity and evolved over time as Jews migrated from country to country. Today, a turkey and Swiss on sourdough with mayo is pretty standard fare, but at a traditional kosher deli you’ll find dark ryes, plenty pastrami, beef brisket, frankfurters, and mustard in the glass case.
The origins and evolution of many favorites like challah, corned beef, matzo, cheesecake, and bagels, which were created in Poland in 1610 and given as gifts to women after child birth, are included. The illustrated timeline chronicles a brief history of Jewish migration, as well the emergence of staples like cream cheese, Crisco, matzo, and bialys.
The true American deli is an endangered species with many older establishments closing their doors. As more delis take on characteristics of diners, the traditional menu offerings are becoming more homogenized and less individual. The stories, recipes, and images offered in America’s Great Delis preserve the great deli tradition and keep the doors open for future generations to nosh to their heart’s content.
