Hi! I am trying to find a recipe for the tuna salad sandwiches from Worman's Bakery & Deli, a Jewish deli 
that was on Broad Street in downtown Jacksonville, Florida from 1923-2009. I remember the tuna had a dill 
taste to it and was very dry, in a good way (not gloppy & mayonnaise drenched). It was a wonderful treat 
to eat tuna salad sandwiches at Worman's with my mom & sisters as a teenager, and then have their 
fantastic cheesecake slices for dessert afterwards. I would love to make their tuna salad at home!
Thank you for your help.

Hi Allison,

I did not have any success locating any recipes at all from Warman's. The only mention of their tuna salad that I could find was on a copy of their menu.

Probably the only way to get this would be from a former employee or from the family itself. I will post this on my site for reader input.

Dear Uncle Phaedrus, another problem maybe you can help me with! This is Doug from the Philippines 
e-mailing you about my health insurance from states wanting the money exchange rate for the day I 
got medicine or doctor visit I had in 2017. I've looked and talk to banks here and no one can help

Philippines peso rate? As always THANK YOU for any help you can give!!!!!  Doug
