Deli Food is simple food from Eastern Europe, Lithuania, Russia and Hungary. Many deli items were developed out of necessity as Jews migrated from country to country. Up until a few decades ago, the kitchen was the centre of the Jewish home.
It is where you would always find your mother. Coming home from school, the kitchen and the stove is where it began. The wonderful aromas would hit you as you walked through the front door. “You must be hungry”, “Try this”, “Try that” were all too familiar shouts as we walked into the kitchen.
Both of us were so fortunate to have grown up in families where food, entertaining and hospitality played a major role in our upbringing. We would watch our mothers as they prepared daily and holiday meals. For years our family homes have hosted many friends, family, visitors and students from away.
NOW is our time to share family recipes and hospitality with YOU!
