Summary
DIVINE FOOD, directed by Bill Chayes, focuses on one immigrant family, the Oscherwitzes, manufacturers of deli products since the 1880s. Four generations of the family have operated delicatessen factories and retail stores in Chicago and Cincinatti, and their brands include such well-known names as Best Kosher, Shofar, and Sinai, today owned by the Bessin Corporation, a subsidiary of the Sara Lee Corp. Through interviews, archival photographs, and home movies, the Oscherwitz story is told, along with a step-by-step examination of the koshering process. The Jewish delicatessen, whether kosher or merely "kosher-style", is a key ingredient in the melting pot of Jewish life in America
