Description

Beloved culinary and cultural institutions, Jewish delis are wonderlands of amazing flavours and great food – bright, buttery, briny, sweet, fatty, salty, smokey...In The Jewish Deli, comics artist and deli aficionado Ben Nadler takes a deliciously entertaining deep dive into the history and culture of this food and the places that serve it up to us across the counter. A visual treat, this accessible and informative nonfiction graphic novel delivers stories of tradition and innovation, celebrations of iconic menu staples, flavour profiles, food preparations, ordering advice, spotlights on legendary and up-and-coming delis, and much more. Chapters guide readers through the details and delights of each major food category such as meat, fish, bagels and bread, schmears, soups and sides, sweets, and drinks, all delightfully illustrated and each more irresistibly craveable than the last.

Critic Reviews

Best Cookbooks of July selection

-- VICE


"The Jewish Deli allows readers to learn the history of Jewish deli food, by first absorbing the look of the food with their eyes. The carefully detailed, colorful drawings leave nothing out...makes you feel one step closer to a juicy bite of food yourself. The images pop to life, allowing readers to feel like deli food is within reach."

--Jewlish (AISH)


"This book is 256 pages of joy, replete with Alaskan king salmon wear-ing crowns and an adorable car-toon parve rugelach cozi-ly sand-wiched between its bud-dies, a milk jug in Crocs and a chick-en drum-stick with plaid socks...This won-der-ful book will sure-ly appeal to any-one who is hun-gry to learn more about the his-to-ry of Ashke-nazi com-fort food."

--The Jewish Book Council


"This is fun: The Jewish Deli by Ben Nadler is an illustrated guide to delis that covers the history, hallmarks, and landmarks (Canter's! Katz's! More!) of this storied genre of food purveyor."

--The Stained Page News


"With whimsy and a comic-style approach, the book touches on the history of Jewish delis; explores iconic items such as "The Smoked Meat Sandwich," "The Reuben Sandwich," and "Chopped Liver"; and interviews the owners of some of the best-known establishments around...It's impossible to leaf through this book without developing some major cravings, too."

--Food Gal


"Packed with comics exploring Jewish history, vivid renderings of NYC's Jewish delis and delightful illustrations of everything from knishes to latkes, the book makes for a mouthwatering read"

--TimeOut New York


"An epic ode to glorious deli eats! Keep a pastrami sandwich on hand during your reading. This book is a great combination of passion, instruction, history and cool tips, and the art is rad."--Lucy Knisley, author of Relish: My Life in the Kitchen
"This book is the greatest thing to happen to Jewish deli since mustard met cured meats. A brilliant, hilarious mitzvah on every page!"--David Sax, author of Save the Deli: In Search of Perfect Pastrami, Crusty Rye, and the Heart of Jewish Delicatessen
