Oh God, I love schlag.



Thanks to my friend Zizou*, who is visiting from San Francisco and steadfastly eating through a packed schedule of restaurants, I finally ended up tasting the famous food at Peter Luger on Sunday afternoon.  Yes, I ate lunch there before going home to cook a big Sunday dinner.  But I only ate a hamburger, not steak.


And a piece of slab bacon.


And schlag, which is the most beautiful way to say “whipped cream” that I know.


With just a bit of apple strudel for ballast.

And then I went home and cooked pork spare ribs in in a spicy glaze, fried chicken wings in a sweet and sticky soy sauce glaze, dumplings that were terrible, and 짬뽕, jjampong, a Korean-Chinese noodle soup that’s filled with seafood and spiked with crushed red pepper oil.  The last, to my utter relief, was good.  I think it was the two dozen clams.

* My friend who insists on remaining anonymous even though half the readers of this blog know who she is.

    We love Zizou! That schlag looks so decadent and wonderful.

    Sounds great, but as mi panza is gaining in the race toward obesity; I will have to refrain from such indlgences. (And then, there’s the price.)

    Best wishes,
    Don Cuevas
