There’s nothing quite like a kosher Jewish delicatessan for us Anglos, and we all have our favorites, from New York to London, and Johannesburg to Sydney. Six months ago, we opened The Deli on Nitza in Netanya, hoping to provide the high standards, clean conditions and heimish atmosphere of a top-class delicatessan in any cosmopolitan center.
My partners, Stephen Cohen and his son, Bradley are all former South Africans known for our biltong and boerewors. But we boast a wide range of deli delights, including gevilte fish and other Pessah specials, and we have become famous for our hot beef on rye and boerewors rolls which will be available again after the holiday. Our slogan is “For the taste of it, and we cook with unique flavors and spices.”
Here are two of our favorite recipes for you to try over Pessah.
