One of the greatest things about New York City, gastronomically speaking, is the delicatessen, or “deli,” tradition. At the heart of every deli is sandwiches–warm piles of cured meat (almost always beef, since pork’s not kosher), piled on seeded rye, and other breads, served with tangy deli mustard.

First, a few things you probably know about me and the amazing Varietal Chile Extractions from Henry Family Farm:
1) Always on the lookout for great products, I found Bob Henry and his Shenandoah Valley chiles (Virginia) in August, 2012. I learned that he’s a freak for chile varieties, and that he makes hot sauces out of them (we call ‘em Varietal Chile Extractions) that preserve each chile’s flavor and integrity. I’m telling you…they are the best “hot sauces” made anywhere!
In my never-ending quest for light, agreeable, food-friendly reds–the same quest that will lead to my imports of delirious dry Lambrusco in a few months!–I have been researching the Schiava vein. If you’re into the reds of Italy’s Austrian border region, Alto Adige…you’ve probably read about all the other reds, like Lagrein, and French varietals.
Americans have good reason to associate kimchi with Napa cabbage; one of my Korean sources tells me that over 75% of all kimchi made in Korea is made with “choson paech’u,” or Napa cabbage. Delicious in taste, lovely in texture, this cabbage preserves extremely well, since about 90% of the cabbage’s liquid is drawn out of it during the salting phase of kimchi-making.
If you remember the TV show of this name from the 1990s…no, all this has nothing to do with Robin Leach! No, this is about…luxurious caviar and glorious Champagne themselves!
After decades of dreaming this…and years of laying the business groundwork…I am now ready to begin offering you the exclusive David Rosengarten Gastronomic Selection caviar, provided by the world’s greatest caviar company, Petrossian, based in Paris.
