Many a day I've fondly recalled the stunningly good Reubens, served up with potato salad and all-you-can-eat dill pickles on the side, to be had at my favorite deli. That was years ago and far away. These days, the closest I can come to a real deli is the grocery store counter or my own kitchen. About a year ago someone did open an "Italian deli" not far from the state capitol in Montpelier, but I've never seen more than a single car in the parking lot. Thus, I was delighted to come across The Deli Maven's Cookbook, stayed up late to read every word and even shared it with my friends on Facebook because it is THAT good!

David Cowles is a cook after my own heart! He had my full attention the very second that he talked about buying a dozen or more corned beefs when they are on sale for St. Patrick's day. I do exactly the same and am counting the days until corned beef goes on sale again. My freezer is bare! (No worries, I'll just pick up a brisket the next time I go to town and give David's recipe for making my own corned beef a whirl.) I was further encouraged when I found that a fair number of the recipes that he provides are nearly identical to my own and that he thinks the best rye bread he ever made is the exact same one that I have ever made, found in Secrets of a Jewish Baker: Recipes for 125 Breads from Around the World, one of my Top 3 books of bread baking!

This is an extensive book, full of information, stories and jokes that will keep you interested and reading from the first page to the last.

I'm a Nazarene Church kid from behind the "Orange Curtain". I don't think I've ever been in a real Jewish deli; I'm sure I haven't, in fact. I was a guest at a Seder meal once when I was 9; that's my entire exposure to Jewish culture.

But after reading this book, if I don't make a batch of knishes soon, I'm going to implode. Chicken-in-the-pot WILL be on my table, and soon. Who the heck knew you could MAKE cream cheese?!? But now, I feel that I must.

Tortuously good book.

While reviewing another of Mr. Cowles' interesting cookbooks, I realized that I had neglected to rate and review this terrific one that first introduced me to his writing. I'm a serious cook and cookbook collector with hundreds of print books on food and now about 150 digital examples so far on my Kindle.

I love a book that is both well written and with recipes that actually work. There are all too many alleged cookbooks that are just pirated from recipe sources or badly put together or simply don't make good food. Cowles' book is well edited and tells an interesting story as well. It is a book that I recommend highly to the curious or adventurous cook. The recipes are detailed enough that even beginners should be successful. Most of all, the food and the recipes are workable and delightful.

My introduction to what is largely Jewish ethnic food came from my mother. She was raised in a Southern Baptist family whose cook for many years kept Kosher! She might be turning in her grave to see how much her liver-loathing eldest now lusts after good chopped liver, though. While she was an accomplished cook, she mangled liver badly with vulcanized liver that even the starving would have been hesitant to eat. Cowles presents recipes that just might jar her and you into trying some new and delicious things like homemade pastrami.

The recipes in this book are also quite frugal compared to buying deli style food and in time of tight money, that's yet another thing to recommend the work. If you aren't quite convinced by these reviews, at least try a sample and enjoy the writing style as well as the recipes.

Thanks a lot, I am now miserably homesick and missing deli more than usual.
Many of the ingredients in the recipes are not available here in the middle
of nowhere (like Moses I'm stuck in the desert), but I'll stack my chicken
and matzoh ball soups against anyones!

I can't remember when I last read a cookbook that was so entertaining and had the best recipes for food that I truly love.
If you haven't made the potato knishes, then do it !
This book gets a A+ from me.

I loved the author the moment I opened this book and saw a picture of Brent's Deli in it. Brent's is absolutely the best deli in the Los Angeles area, and I'm so pleased to see an "expert" admit it!
For readers who aren't fortunate enough to go to Brent's all the time, DO NOT miss the salami and other recipes in this slim volume. It's the real deal!
