Save the Deli

The Deli Maven’s Cookbook

Yes Yes, I know, it’s been too long. I never write, I never call, and here you are in Florida, alone…

Well, you shouldn’t have moved to Florida, what can I tell you.

I’ve come out of my semi-blog retirement to write about someone great today…one of you.

David W. Cowles has been an early and dedicated fan of Save the Deli, right from the get go. Way back in 2007, he was posting in the comments, sending me stories and recipes and photos, as he visited delis in the Seattle area, and smoked his own backyard pastrami. A deli lover born in LA, David Cowles now lives in Las Vegas, and he’s spent the past few years writing a Jewish delicatessen cookbook, which he has just published on

The book costs less than five bucks, and you can borrow it for free if you’re an Amazon Prime user, so really, there’s no excuse. It’s basically 1/3 the cost of a sandwich at Katz’s.

Mazel Tov to David. Hope you enjoy his recipes, stories, and adventures.

    Will it be coming out in print? A paperback version would be great (it’s OK if it costs a little more than $5).
