The Jewish Bagel Queen Breaking All the Rules – First We Feast

But for Elyssa Heller, founder of Edith’s sandwich shop in Brooklyn, Jewish food has a much broader definition – one that is influenced by the Jewish diaspora. From Portuguese chicken sausage, to a lamb merguez sandwich from the Maghreb region of North Africa – Edith’s menu explores the global flavors and cultural experience of Jewish cuisine.
