Heckman’s Delicatessen

We can thank the late Audrey Perlmutter of Bethesda for “Nana’s Matzo Ball Soup.” Perlmutter was the grandmother of Heckman’s Delicatessen owner Ronnie Heckman, and she passed down one heck of a good recipe. Served in a square bowl, a light, fresh and flavorful broth provides the bath for a baseball-size matzo ball that’s fluffy with air pockets. Perlmutter would be happy to know that her nurturing lives on; at least one customer with sick kids called last year and placed a carryout order for the “Jewish penicillin.”
