Aaron Rezny’s Eating Delancey

As you flip through Aaron Rezny’s new book, Eating Delancey, you can see how it portrays Jewish food in beautiful photographs, recipes, and tender reminisces by notable New Yorkers. Delancey Street and those around it in the Lower East Side (Ludlow, Essex, Orchard, Rivington) are the historical home of Jewish immigrants, and therefore a great area to experience unique Jewish foods brought to America in the early 20th century during the great emigration from Europe.

Foods in the area that will make your mouth water include knishes, bagels, lox, pastrami, whitefish, kasha, dill pickles, herring, egg creams, and much more. Neighborhood gems are all referenced in Remedy’s book including infamous Katz’s Deli, Russ & Daughters and Sammy’s Roumanian. On Wednesday December 10th at 6:30PM, authors Aaron Rezny and Jordan Schaps will be joined by their contributors at 103 Orchard Street for a book sale of 15% and discussion and stories surrounding the many foods and memories in the book. Attendance is free and seating is first-come, first-served. For questions, contact Laura Lee at llee@tenement.org or 212.431.0233.
