The Second Avenue Deli has been an internationally renowned Gotham landmark for nearly half a century. Over the years, it's founder, Abe Lebewohl, provided the best Jewish fare in town, transforming his tiny ten-seat Villiage Eatery into a New York institution.
The Second Avenue Deli Cookbook contains more than 160 of Abe Lebewohl's recipes, including all of the Deli's peerless renditions of traditional Jewish dishes: chicken soup with matzo balls, chopped liver, gefilte fish, kasha varnishkes, mushroom barley soup, noodle kugel, potato lakes, blintzes, and many more. These versatile dishes are perfect for any occasion--from holiday dinners to Sunday brunches with friends and family.
