Way to go Ellen!!!
HOT THREAD OF THE WEEK
Amy and Chris write: "ellen4641 travels to the City of Brotherly Love to meet author David Sax in the 'Pastrami in Philly!! And my "Meat-Up" with David Sax!! "Save the Deli," he says!!' thread (http://www.roadfood.com/F...t-he-says-m550941.aspx) in the Trip Reports forum. Not only does Ellen chat with David Sax about his new book, but she also indulges in a sandwich at the Famous 4th Street Deli to boot. This dovetails with the Sterns' NPR discussion about the shrinking number of good delis around the country."
Thanks JOE ROGO for pointing this out, as I had'nt seen this yet.... Where did Amy and Chris write this?!
I've broken bread with Amy & Chris, so they know I'm a dedicated "freser" ...(look that one up in your "yiddish dictionary online", lol ) Thanks for the nice plug, Amy & Chris...
I love all the directions this pastrami thread has taken! We've shared some pointers on Philly deli history, and current Philly deli info, we've had one of our Roadfooders try the Carnegie for the first time (mail ordered to Washington State),
and we've had the same Roadfooder comment that he's cooking SHORT RIB PASTRAMI for 2000 people !!!
Hey, can you make it 2001 people! (I'd like to crash THAT party!)
The only way for this report to be TOTALLY complete would be for DAVID SAX HIMSELF to jump on here and say a few words!!
I was sure hoping he would (it's never too late, DAVID!) Are you out there, David ?!?
But for now, I'll have to settle for the nice thank you he wrote me on my FACEBOOK page.... thanking me for the LARGEST BLACK & WHITE COOKIE he'd ever seen..( I brought him a cookie, a coconut macaroon, and an almond Rugallah from the FAMOUS 4th St. Deli... to "MEAT-up" with him at the Philly library)
