In the spirit of National Knish Month, German Village deli Katzinger’s is throwing a five-course Knish, Cheese and Beer Tasting at 6:30 p.m. on March 20. (In case you’re not privy, a knish is a flakey pastry loaded with meat and veggies.)
Manager Eric Dennison says Rockmill Brewery in Lancaster, which specializes in Belgian-style ales, will be supplying three of the five brews. The others, as well as the cheeses, are still being finalized.
In addition to Katzinger’s Classic Knish—which is packed with mashed potatoes, caramelized onions and Gruyere cheese—several specialty knishes will be offered. This includes a Cuban knish, stuffed with pulled pork, black beans and corn, and the St. Patrick’s Day-themed “Knish Me, I’m Irish,” filled with corned beef, cabbage, carrots, celery and onions. Reservations are $25.95 and can be made by calling 614-228-3354.
Can’t make the dinner? No worries. Katzinger’s will be selling a rotating selection of knishes (in addition to its classic on the regular menu) throughout the month, too.
