When I was approached by Kosherfest to be part of a panel of culinary experts to judge deli sandwiches, I was thrilled beyond belief. I was introduced to the deli sandwich from a very young age. Whenever I traveled with my family to New York, L.A., West Palm Beach, or Chicago, we always found our favorite delis and enjoyed their version of the Ruben, Pastrami on Rye, Corned Beef, Roast Beef, or Tuna on Challah. This coming Wednesday, the Best Kosher Deli Sandwich will be judged on taste, appearance and creativity. I’ll be tweeting live from the event, just look for the #hashtag #kosherfest to get a taste of the competition (so to speak).
Here are more details about the contest from Andover Communications
Wars have been fought over less significant issues than where you can find the best kosher pastrami or corned beef or chopped liver sandwich in the New York metropolitan area. To help answer that question, kosher delis will participate in the search for the best kosher deli sandwich at the 21st annual Kosherfest.
WHEN: Wednesday, October 28th (11 a.m. – Noon)
WHERE: Kosherfest, Meadowlands Exposition Center, 355 Harmon Meadow Blvd, Secaucus, New Jersey
