What makes a Jew? In the oft-quoted rabbinic source "Ethics of the Fathers", the three pillars of Judaism are earmarked as prayer, study, and gemilut hasidim, or acts of loving kindness. But there's a fourth pillar - Food... A tender cut of corned beef steeped in its juices. A full-bodied garlic pickle. Spicy brown mustard with grain. A blintz that melts in your mouth like a creamsicle on a summer's day. Recipes and culinary garnishes from Hungary, Poland, Russia, and Romania. Meet the effusive and charming Ziggy Gruber, a third-generation delicatessen man, owner and maven, as well as Yiddish-speaking French-trained chef, who currently operates one of the country's most popular, and delicious delis, Kenny and Ziggy's in Houston. "Texas?" you ask. Shalom, y'all.
