Thread: Schaller-Weber question

    Default Schaller-Weber question

    The local German deli has tubes of Schaller-Weber goose liver
    pate. Looks like about 8 ounces, or maybe 200 grams in a opaque
    yellow tube.

    Anybody have any experience with this product? Is it any good?

    In my experience a very high quality old-world sort of house:
    http://www.schallerweber.com/productinfo.html
    Our local German restaurant and deli recommends it highly
    and stocks many of their products; my current favorite is the
    liver pate with onion. Very rich, minimal if any fillers added.
    Not particularly expensive and really good flavors.

    I've had them more than a few times before I got gout. IMO, highly
    recommended.

    I learned about goose liver pate in old 60-70s German deli's, which
    have sadly all but disappeared. The real deal, home made, and usually
    only available for a limited time around the holidays, if at all,
    appears to be a thing of the misty past. Over the decades, these
    places slowly vanished, with a couple pretend delis carrying these S&W
    packaged pates in tubes. Not as good as the real deal, but quite good
    and as close as yer likely to find. I love 'em and I think I'll order
    a couple, if they're not now too expensive and can figure out where.

    Last time I ran across them was in a Slavic deli and they only had the
    silver tubed CALVES LIVER PATE. Still, quite good, if a bit expensive
    at $13 tube. I used to get the goose fer under $10 tube, but that was
    the last time I saw them, about 13-14 yrs ago.

    Wow! This looks dead cheap, even with shipping:

    There can be no doubt I'm gonna call them.

    Dunno but I may have to go back and ask.

    (They also had the calf liver pate in tubes, but I'm not so
    interested in that.)

    One of the great dishes in the world is calf's liver grilled on a very hot
    grill to medium rare, and covered with sauteed onions. If you see it with a
    butcher you trust, grab it. I'd also forget the calf's liver pate.

    Thanks. I will have to consider picking one up; not sure what
    the price is.

    Steve, do you mean Lehr's or Staudt's, or is there another German deli
    I don't know about?

    If it's what I'm thinking, I brought some home with me from NY in
    September and enjoyed it very much. I am quite sure that what I had was
    not purely goose liver, though.

    Manhattan.

    Whoops!! My bad! I did not read your post carefully, Steve. I didn't
    realize you're referring to a California place. Sorry.

    I heard a very interesting story about foie gras the other day:

    German delis are an endangered species in the Bay Area, so I was happy
    to hear of an unfamiliar one. Three have closed in the last decade.
    Another, a specialty store with some packaged deli items, is run by a
    woman in her 70s, practically single-handed since her husband passed
    away some 5-6 years ago. One has been thriving since they added
    roughly ten beer taps to their operation.

    This sort of goose liver pate does not involve foie gras.

    :-) It never occurred to me that Schaller & Weber did wholesale to
    other stores. Live and learn.
