Birth of the Smoked Meat 2005-06 Jeanne Pope, Zoe Mapp and Stanley Lewis
We follow the process of making smoked meat and the characters that have been creating this Jewish delicacy with love for so many years. The Main Deli and Steakhouse represents one of the few remaining businesses on the Boulevard St. Laurent, the central artery of Montreal. Starring the enigmatic owner, Peter Varvaro, and his old-time friend, the legendary Montreal sculptor Stanley Lewis, we catch a glimpse of their world, which has remained relatively unchanged over the last 40 years.
"A gorgeous black-and-white look inside Montreal's Main Deli."
