    By Michael Israel

    February 21, 2013 | 12:19 pm

    Since my wife and I opened our food truck M.O.Eggrolls in 2011, I have had some of the best and worst days of my life. As the chef and owner of my own business I have had the freedom to create my own schedule, design my own menu, and create a food concept that connects with my...

    You know you’re getting old when every meal starts and ends with an admonition about how food will kill you. 

    For a few years now, whenever my friends and I sit down to eat, the conversation veers toward illness, and how to avoid it, and somehow, it all comes down to food. No...

  • Sunday at Kenny and Zuke’s Delicatessen [SLIDESHOW]

    By Rob Eshman

    August 19, 2012 | 1:15 pm

    More than Jews have kept delis, the deli has kept the Jews.

    May 4, 2012 | 10:08 am

    It’s not a dinner for schmucks but a lunch served by one.

    That may sound harsh, but how else to introduce a new food truck rolling on the streets of Los Angeles called “Schmuck with a Truck”?

    On only his eighth day of business, the yellow lunch truck with the likeness of...

  • Man on a mission to save the Jewish deli

    August 28, 2009 | 6:13 pm

    Chicago and Cleveland have the best corned beef. Detroit is tops for rye bread. The best smoked meat is in Montreal, and for pastrami, you can’t touch New York and L.A.

    When it comes to Jewish delicatessen, 30-year-old David Sax is the go-to guy. A longtime deli aficionado, the...

    An indigenous language in southern Mexico is in danger of disappearing because its last two speakers have stopped talking to one another.


    Of course, this begs the question “If two Jews means three opinions, how many languages do two Jews speak?”

    OK.  Maybe not ‘of...

    Just as I was embarking on a cross-country tour to promote my latest cookbook, I was sidetracked by a pastrami sandwich.

    It happened in Los Angeles. I had gone into Langer's, the local pastrami palace, and it was the first good pastrami I'd tasted in quite a while. Sure, I grew...
