Deli Man

Deli Man is a documentary film produced and directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou; the third work in his trilogy about Jewish culture. The celebrated preceding films are “A Cantor’s Tale” and “The Klezmatics - On Holy Ground,” which have to date screened at more than two hundred international film festivals and have been broadcast in the U.S., Israel, Canada and Poland. The principal guide of Deli Man is the effusive and charming Ziggy Gruber, a third-generation delicatessen man, owner and maven (as well as a Yiddish-speaking French trained chef) who currently operates one of the country’s top delis, Kenny and Ziggy’s in Houston. Kenny and Ziggy’s has been touted in press reviews ranging from “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” to the L.A. Daily News.

    Houston’s Ziggy Gruber stars in ‘Deli Man’ documentary
    Ziggy Gruber is ready for his closeup, and it’s going to be a doozy.
    Gruber, owner of Kenny & Ziggy’s New York Delicatessen, is a culinary star here in Houston and among deli cognoscenti. He’s about to become an even bigger star thanks to “Deli Man,” a documentary produced and directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou.

    Interview with Erik Greenberg Anjou, director of Deli Man

    What makes a Jew? In the oft-quoted rabbinic source “Ethics of the Fathers”, the three pillars of Judaism are earmarked as prayer, study, and gemilut hasidim, or acts of loving kindness. But there’s a fourth pillar – Food… A tender cut of corned beef steeped in its juices. A full-bodied garlic pickle. Spicy brown mustard with grain. A blintz that melts in your mouth like a creamsicle on a summer’s day. Recipes and culinary garnishes from Hungary, Poland, Russia, and Romania. Meet the effusive and charming Ziggy Gruber, a third-generation delicatessen man, owner and maven, as well as Yiddish-speaking French-trained chef, who currently operates one of the country’s most popular, and delicious delis, Kenny and Ziggy’s in Houston. “Texas?” you ask. Shalom, y’all.
