A NOSH-talgic Look at Jewish Food: History of the Pastrami Sandwich


We've been collecting videos about the origins of classic Jewish foods that bring back mouth-watering memories of the Borscht Belt and the many Kosher delis that were present in Jewish neighborhoods everywhere. Today the Borscht Belt hotels are gone and so are many of the delis.

One of our more popular programs is A NOSH-talgic Look at Jewish Food, with videos and memories of bagels and lox, chicken soup with matzo balls, pickled herring, sour pickles, real seltzer, and even schmaltz. We presented it last month at a brunch in a senior community in New Jersey that got the attendees really hungry. 

Whenever we find a video that makes us hungry for nostalgic Jewish delicacies, we try to share it with you. If you're in the mood for a good pastrami sandwich, take a look at this new video from The Nosher website that reveals the origin of this staple of the Jewish diet.

Enjoy!
