Save the Deli

Nextbook: “Meat Up” An Interview with Me

Two weeks back I had the great pleasure to meet Nextbook podcast producer Marit Haahr and host Sara Ivry at Ben’s Best Kosher Deli in Rego Park, Queens, for a solid interview about this blog, the book, and all thing deli salvation. What follows is their interview, which you can download from their site. It was a ton of fun and I urge you all to check out Nextbook, one of the most compelling new Jewish publications to emerge in recent years.

Meat Up

David Sax celebrates the wonders of rolled beef, tongue, and other deli treats

INTERVIEW BY SARA IVRY

Pastrami, chopped liver, tongue—these are staples of the traditional Jewish delicatessen, an institution beloved by journalist David Sax. David writes Save the Deli, a blog which chronicles the life and death of delis around the world. He is also writing a book of the same name which will be published later this year by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Nextbook asked David to lunch at Ben’s Best, a deli in Rego Park, Queens, where we talked about his favorite dishes, the history of the Jewish delicatessen, and why so many latkes miss the mark.
