I'll have what she's having

schwartzs smoked meatThe Center for Jewish Studies at UAlbany is sponsoring an "an interactive, multimedia" talk this Thursday about the evolution of Jewish delis in American -- or, as the blurb on the event's Facebook page says, "how the 'soul food' that [delis] dished up became a quintessential part of American culture for Jews and non-Jews alike."

The talk starts at 7 pm in the Standish Room in the Science Library on the uptown campus. It's free.

Earlier on AOA: Corned beef at Old World Provisions

Comments

Stopped by the Old World store on South Pearl a few weeks ago - closed. Sign says the Troy store is open.

My mom told me that Katz's Deli gets their famous pastrami from a place in the Capital District, but I can't remember the name of it.

Just thought I'd put that out there.

@Summer - It's from Old World Provisions, mentioned above.
@TM - Really? That makes me sad! Do you know where the Troy store is?

12 Industrial Park
273-5735
4th generation family owned.

I found out there were going to be kosher snacks as well.

But no creamed herring or chopped liver.
Not even pickles. But given the hour it might be too late for pickles anyhow.

I think it's just going to be cookies and stuff.

Perhaps the Albany Old World Provisions was just closed temporarily? Or did it really seem closed closed.
