If you think Jewish food is just pastrami sandwiches and matzo ball soup, you're missing a lot of the story. Author Joan Nathan joins Mark Russ Federman (from Russ & Daughters) to discuss her new book and the diversity of Jewish food thanks to intermingling of cultures from Italy to Mexico to India to France to Israel to New York. She shares some recipes and historical stories.
