Grumans Menu

Calgary’s best deli offers classic Jewish nosh, a culinary tradition that I’ve had a craving for ever since I was a little kid. My cousins are Jewish so I grew up nibbling on classic Jewish fare whenever visiting their house. My Aunt Judy used to make an addictive bowl of matzo ball soup and I always enjoyed toasty bagels with tuna and egg salad and plump dill pickles.
