Deli roll is where it all began for me and this book. Deli roll is not in my usual repertoire nor has it been in any of my cookbooks, but it is and has been all the rage for years on Shabbos tables across this country. My kids requested it one Shabbos. As I began to assemble the dish on Friday morning it struck me, “This represents everything wrong with how we cook today. This item right here.” Enraged, I called my girlfriend Estee and ranted, “Layers of puff pastry, spread thick with mayonnaise and layered with pounds and pounds of salami, pastrami, corned beef! No wonder obesity and diabetes are rampant!” “Do something,” she said. “Your cookbooks have made a dent toward healthier eating; make a bigger dent.” That was it. I began jotting down ideas that afternoon. The ideas included a healthier version of the deli roll that won’t make such a big dent on your scale! Not only is this dish lower in fat, cholesterol, and calories, but it also provides vitamin-packed sweet potato. You can have Thanksgiving any day of the year! I hope you enjoy it.
