You might remember reading about Len Berk, Zabar's nova slicer extraordinaire, here.
Len has recently recorded his story at StoryCorps, the remarkable oral history project that has been recording people's personal stories across the US for 10 years now!
“I didn't really have any lox slicing credentials.”
Len Berk (R) loves lox — the salt-cured salmon that goes so well with bagels.
Today, the 85-year-old New Yorker is a veteran salmon slicer at a gourmet food shop in Manhattan, but it wasn’t always that way.
At StoryCorps, Len tells his friend, Joshua Gubitz (L), about becoming a salmon slicer after forty years in accounting.
