Wex is writing a book about Jewish food for Scribner. He's hoping that Mrs. Wex will cook him some of the extraordinary things he is discovering during his research. Mrs. Wex is a little alarmed.
You can follow Wex's research and findings in Daybooks of Dyspepsia - a special section of the website devoted to the culinary delights stumbled upon while writing his new book.
