Dan Pashman guest hosts! 

Katz's Deli owner Jake Dell, former New York Times restaurant critic Miriam Sheraton, and Mile End founder Noah Bernamoff discuss the landscape of Jewish delis in New York and beyond. Managing culinary director of Serious Eats, J. Kenji López-Alt, and Smitten Kitchen blogger Deb Perelman teach us just when it is socially acceptable to toast a bagel. Then, Kenji stays on to talk about whether or not mayonnaise needs eggs to be considered real mayo. And for Please Explain, Red Farm's Ed Schoenfeld and postdoctoral fellow Ian Mosby set the record straight about MSG.
