For a simple summer meal, this smoked pork loin is perfect when quickly heated in a pan or browned on a grill. Kasseler is a popular German preparation of pork, and it refers to any meat that has been smoked and cured in a salt brine. Since it comes out of this process ready-to-eat, you won’t have to work very hard–and if you order online, we’ll even deliver it to your door.
Landbrot Bakery and Bar has arrived on the Lower East Side and in the West Village! There’s a lot to love about this chic restaurant: they’re open late, it’s spacious and of meticulous decor, you can sit outside, their list of cakes fills nearly 11” of menu, and their selection of German craft beers aligns perfectly with our taste.
Restaurateur Michael Momm is gearing up for the L.A. opening of his biergarten Loreley, whose original outpost opened on New York’s Rivington St. in 2003. He invited Schaller & Weber (and our patés) to a pre-opening dinner party at his home in Los Angeles. The guests were friendly and down to earth, like Momm himself, and they represented various corners of his life.
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.
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.
How to make proper Jägerschnitzel, or “hunter’s cutlet” in German, is the subject of much debate, or perhaps simply much variation. We read up on the controversy–breaded or unbreaded? pork or veal?–and, although these are matters of personal taste as much as authenticity, we decided to weigh in.
A quote from Das Bierhaus’ dinner menu: “We dedicate 100% of our draft lines to German biers.” Alright, looks like my work here is done…see ya in Burlington.
Here’s a great little spot that’s off the beaten path. About 15 miles south of Boston, and 25 or so from Providence, RI, Walpole, MA is home to Euro Guild, an official Schaller & Weber store that supplies German and Central European products to New England’s finest specialty markets.
Not that we advocate sitting in front of a screen all day, but hey, some of us are forced to. And who’s going to blame you for staying in as the days get shorter and colder? My point being, did you know that one of the most well-stocked German markets worldwide is only a few strikes of the old keyboard away–meaning you can visit from the comfort of your home or office, 24/7?
Between the clientele (not to name-drop or anything, but, Lou Reed! Lou Reed!), eclectic vintage wall hangings preserved from the space’s previous occupant, Le Zinc, and the beautifully executed German-Austrian menu, chef Kurt Gutenbrunner’s restaurant Blaue Gans in TriBeCa remains a staple for consistently enjoyable, unpretentious, and authentic cuisine.
From the Bay Area–While we’re plugging away at the various institutions, restaurants, and marketplaces that carry our products nationwide, might we not fail to mention one little charcuterie cart of whom we are, naturally, the proudest?
At Schaller & Weber, we love nothing more than introducing our customers to new flavors and experiences, but it doesn’t hurt to have two hundred and fifty years of tradition to back us up, either. A Bavarian meatloaf developed around 1776, Leberkäse is one of those dishes that is new to many, yet stands the test of time.
Having missed it last year for the first time in history, we are doubly ready for the 55th annual German-American Steuben Parade, which will take place this Saturday, September 15 at 11:30 a.m. between E. 67th St. and E. 86th St. along 5th Avenue.
Here at Schaller & Weber, we realize we may come off as a bit New York-centric, but it turns out our products are doing great things in other cities as well.
Frikadellen. Freakawho? I asked, moments before being blown into some previously unattained level of taste-consciousness by what I had naïvely assumed was just another burger.
There’s a long weekend coming up, and some of you might be heading up to Montauk. If so, we strongly advise you to stop by Zum Schneider, one of our favorite outposts in the area.
