Deli Day is on the way

Freddy’s Frozen Custard’s Scott Redler, right, and his pal Lou Medvene man the meat line at last year’s Deli Day.

One of my favorite dining events of the year is just a little more than a week away.

Deli Day, an annual celebration of Jewish cuisine, is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11, at Congregation Emanu-El, 7011 E. Central.

Last year was my first time visiting the fundraiser dinner, and it was as fun as it was delicious. I met several nice people and feasted on corned beef, matzo ball soup and homemade brisket, prepared using Freddy’s Frozen Custard founder Scott Redler’s secret recipe.

For $14, diners can either eat-in or carry-out either a brisket dinner or corned beef sandwich meal with latkes, strudel and more. Homemade baked goods, such as rugelach and mandelbrot, also will be for sale.
