A very short book excerpt
The slicing machines in most delicatessens may save time and effort, but they sacrifice taste.

Delicatessens are on the decline as customers age, assimilate, and lose interest. SLIDE SHOW I

With the Jewish New Year nearly here, delicatessens prepare traditional dishes. SLIDE SHOW I
David Sax surveys Rosh Hashana dishes at delis across the United States, from Florida to San Francisco.
