This recipe adapted from SAVEUR is refrigerator-door-worthy and easy to make using Schaller & Weber favorites. A choucroute garnie like this one is perfect for these last cold winter days, and it reminds us of founder Ferdinand’s training in the Alsace region of France.
It’s Valentine’s Day again. This hallmark of Hallmark holidays sends consumers careening in a thousand directions: to the florist! to the chocolatier! recipes for two! the most romantic restaurants! the sexiest lingerie! Or, antithetically, for those swearing off love this week, to the bar. The ice-cream aisle. The Netflix cue. Let us steer you instead, single or attached, to a new idea. Let us encourage you to eat heart.
DeBragga and Spitler is to Schaller & Weber as their Dry Aged Filet Mignon is to our Double Smoked Bacon. You might see them in the same meal, certainly, or in the hands of the same chef, but not, except on rare (exalted!) occasions, on the same plate.

The Globe European Delicatessen is a small, family-owned market and meat counter in Costa Mesa, CA. A 40-year-plus operation, the place packs more punch than most outposts of its size, offering fresh bratwursts, rouladen, and sauerkraut; some of the best German mustards, condiments, and sweets; and an impressive selection of imported bottled beer.
There’s still time to order our quintessential Holiday Ham to serve at your party or Christmas dinner. Perfect for a carving station or as your holiday table centerpiece, this ham is packed with hardwood smoke flavor, done the old-fashioned way every time.
Just as we love reversible clothing and cell phones with cameras and calculators, we love Schinkenspeck for its versatility and functionality–and, is it not fun to say?! For those unfamiliar with this particular variety of cured, smoked pork, think of Schinkenspeck as somewhere between ham and bacon; sliced thinly, it takes on the delicious virtues of proscuitto.
Like finding a note from a secret admirer, we were thrilled to receive this wonderful review on a local blog:
For those on the West Coast there’s Tip Top Meats, a meat shop, European delicatessen, and market in Carlsbad, CA. Owner “Big John” Haedrich has been at the helm of this trusty spot for the last 45 years, and he’s a character if there ever was one (as fellow butchers, we’re keen on these things).
