Put on your thinking caps and sharpen your Black Warrior.
A vegetarian sailor is shipwrecked but manages to swim to a nearby island. He knows that on this island are two groups of natives: The cheese sandwich eaters who always tell the truth, and the ham sandwich eaters who always lie.
He stumbles onto the beach at night, barely alive, and bumps into an islander. Nearly starved, the sailor is looking for a cheese sandwich. He asks the islander if he is a vegetarian or not. The man mumbles a response that the sailor can’t make out, so he asks again. To the sailor’s left, another man responds “He said he’s a cheese sandwich eater, but he’s not.” Then from the sailor’s right a woman calls out “No, he said he’s a ham sandwich eater, but he’s not. ”
What dietary rules do all three of these islanders follow? Which ones eat cheese sandwiches and which ones eat ham sandwiches? From whom can the vegetarian sailor get a bite to eat?
Work it out – QUICK – and get back to me asap. The first correct answer wins a pair of tickets to:
An Evening with David Sax
As a life-long deli obsessive, David Sax was understandably alarmed by the state of Jewish delicatessen – a cuisine that once sat at the very center of Jewish life had become endangered by assimilation and health food trends. And so Sax set out on a journey around the world in search of authentic delicatessen. As chronicled in his new book, Sax investigates everything deli – how it’s made, who makes it best, and where to go for particular dishes.
Sax will speak about how Jewish people view deli cuisine in relation to their health, weight, and bodies. Todd Kliman, Food and Wine Editor and Restaurant Critic for The Washingtonian, will interview Sax to uncover if it is still possible to save the deli. Join this rallying cry for a new generation of food lovers, and sample some classic deli fare while you’re at it.
