Dig in: Jewish Food Faire will offer the real deal

By Allen Pierleoni

"Save the Deli" is the title of a book by journalist David Sax, in which he embarks on a worldwide journey "in search of authentic Jewish delicatessens."

"Save the Deli" is also the theme of the 33rd annual Jewish Food Faire, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Congregation Beth Shalom, 4746 El Camino Ave., Carmichael; (916) 485-4478.

Though Sax won't be present at the fair, a live video chat with him will take place at 11 a.m.

As for the food that will be for sale ($3 to $7), envision stacked corned-beef sandwiches on rye and prepare to dig in. Deli meats, breads, pickles and other goodies will be brought in from three Jewish delis - Saul's in Berkeley, Canter's in Los Angeles and Katz's in New York (since 1888).
Also, congregants will bring their own home-cooked delicacies, including borscht (soup), hamantashen (pastry), kugel (casserole) and more.

Also featured will be Israeli dancing and professional-level arts and crafts.
Parking and admission are free.

Call The Bee's Allen Pierleoni at (916) 321-1128.
