An illustrated Jewish guide to food

AISH reviewed a comic-style book about Jewish food and recipes titled The Jewish Deli: An Illustrated Guide to the Chosen Food, developed by Ben Nadler:
Illustrator Ben Nadler subtitled his new book, `The Jewish Deli, with the following: An Illustrated Guide to the Chosen Food. Yet, I like to think of the book as more than a guide, but as a visual encyclopedia of Jewish food past and present. Nearly every Eastern European Jewish food you have ever heard of can be found while combing through the pages of The Jewish Deli. But unlike traditional encyclopedias, this book brings entries to life with comic-like drawings. Nadler draws readers in with the “faded pastels of the old storefronts; the lined-up jars of colorful dried fruits; the intricate old labels on stacked cans of fish; the gradients of meaty pinks and reds behind the counter glass,” (page 6). It is through these visuals that Nadler hopes to help readers feel confident in what to order at a Jewish deli.
And I do feel confident in reading a GN about food recipes and preparation. Great that the guy thought of producing this kind of comic.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
