Presenter: Rob Clement, Owner of Meshugganah

Known as the “head mensch”—a person who can be relied on to act with honor and integrity and who is kind and considerate, with self-restraint and humility—at Meshugganah deli, Clement will focus on a few specific dishes and how Jewish cuisine relates with food in the South. And, if you’re wondering what the term meshugganah means, he says it’s a Yiddish word for someone that is a little crazy; he adds that anyone who knows him understands why he chose it to name his Charlotte deli.
