  1. There are some nice pictures in there.

    In terms of mouth appeal, I’d have to go with “Pastrami close-up” — actually, I think it is the best shot, period. Where did you get it, I want some!

  2. Hi Euglossine —

    That pastrami was from Katz’s Delicatessen. Well worth it even though the sandwich cost something like $12.

  3. OH MY! What a enticing photo display (including the Flicker pics). WHEN are you going to publish recipes and pictures? I SWEAR your cookbook would be a big seller….I KNOW, you haven’t copyrighted anything….but if YOU ran a restaurant out here, it would be packed. THANKS for the food teaser, Stash….
