near a scary looking club and an african grocery yes?

there's another European store on the west side of aurora somewhere nearby-ish that's just a bit south of the giant asian market that's also on the west side of Aurora up there... (ditto with the helpful recollection of names & cross streets :wacko:)

Do you suffer from Acute Culinary Syndrome? Maybe it's time to get help...

Now that we've bravely ventured outside the Seattle city limits...

Hans' Sausage & Deli in Burien is a great German deli, offering a mix of stuff made in-house and imported from the Vaterland.

Hans gets a lot of their bread from Hess Deli in Lakewood one of the places I wanted to share above if you wnat to come this far south but Hans is nice I like it ..just the bakery at Hess is on sight so it is so much fresher and next door is another coffee shop bakery with real German cakes and pastries to complete your meal

why am I always at the bottom and why is everything so high? 

why must there be so little me and so much sky?

Oh yeah - North on Aurora, before Edmonds somewhere, is another "European" Deli - very eastern European. Some crazy meats and sausages, those charming and occasionally good fancifully wrapped chocolates from Russia and elsewhere, blinzes, videos...It's on the East side of the street - a little strip mall oriented perpendicula to the street, mainly facing south. Vague enough?

This one is just south of the Sam's Club Warehouse store (same side) on Aurora (around 135th and Aurora). They do have some very interesting deli meats, but you gotta check the pull dates on some of the packaged stuff because I once walked out of there with some gravy mix that had a pull date a couple of months past the date I bought it.

Carpatia Sausage

1514 NE 177th St

Shoreline, WA 98155

(206) 417-5567

(This is just off of 15th Ave NE and NE 175th.)

(I have no connection to this place other than as a very irregular but very satisfied customer.)

This shop is amazing. The guy who owns it runs it. Seems to be a one-man show. Everything homemade in the back of his shop. Wonderful sausages, smoked meats, hams, pork chops, etc. Central European tradition -- Slovakian (that's his heritage, I think), Hungarian, Czech, etc.

I don't remember specifically deli meats but then I wasn't looking for those. He also has wonderful breads, things like cabbage soup in the freezer, at holidays he always has special dishes from various middle European traditions. At Christmas he had this wonderful sausage roll, fresh, which I devoured on the spot!

Call first if you can. Not always open at expected times. But check it out -- you won't be sorry!

      Normally, the local market has bresaola in tissue paper thin slices. Today they also had packages in small dice, probably the leftover ends, bits and pieces. Any thoughts on how to enjoy them, besides nibbling on it? 
      Thank you!

      Linguine with Squash, Goat Cheese and Bacon
      Serves 4 as Main Dishor 6 as Side.
      I stumbled on this while looking for recipes with goat cheese. It's from Real Simple (and it is!). I couldn't imagine the combination of flavors, but it was wonderful.

      6 slices bacon
      1 2- to 2 ½-pound butternut squash—peeled, seeded, and diced (4 to 5 cups)
      2 cloves garlic, minced
      1-1/2 c chicken broth
      1 tsp kosher salt
      4 oz soft goat cheese, crumbled
      1 lb linguine, cooked
      1 T olive oil
      2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

      Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel, then crumble or break into pieces; set aside. Drain all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the skillet. Add the squash and garlic to the skillet and sauté over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the broth and salt. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the squash is cooked through and softened, 20 to 25 minutes. Add half the goat cheese and stir well to combine. Place the cooked linguine in a large bowl. Stir the sauce into the linguine and toss well to coat. Drizzle with the olive oil and add the reserved bacon, the remaining goat cheese, and the pepper. Serve immediately.

      Duck Leg Confit Potstickers
      Serves 4 as Appetizer.
      These are seriously decadent potstickers.
      I devised this recipe as part of a Duck Three Ways dinner wherein over the course of three days I dismantled a whole duck using various parts for various things, including rendering fat, making stock and confiting the legs. If you're super-ambitious and do it my way, you'll have duck stock and duck fat on hand as this recipe calls for; otherwise, substitute chicken stock and peanut oil or whatever you have on hand.

      2 confited duck legs, bones discarded and meat shredded
      2 c sliced shiitake caps
      1/2 c sliced scallions
      splash fish sauce
      1 tsp grated fresh ginger
      1 tsp grated fresh garlic
      pinch Five Spice powder
      pot sticker wrappers
      3 c duck stock
      3 T duck fat

      1. Saute shiitakes in duck fat over high heat until most liquid has evaporated and they are beginning to brown.
      Meanwhile, reduce about 1 C duck stock in a small saucepan over medium heat until it's almost syrupy in consistency and tastes sweet.
      Also, warm a couple of cups of unreduced duck stock over low heat in another saucepan.
      2. Combine mushrooms, duck meat, scallions, fish sauce, ginger, garlic and Five Spice powder in a bowl.
      3. Place a teaspoon or so of the duck mixture in the center of a potsticker wrapper; wet half of the edge with water and seal, pinching and pleating one side.
      If you prepare more potstickers than you're going to want to eat, they can be frozen on cookie sheets then put into freezer bags for later.
      4. When all potstickers are sealed, heat a flat-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, melt enough duck fat to thinly cover the bottom, then add the potstickers.
      5. Cook undisturbed until the bottoms are browned, 3-5 minutes, then enough unreduced duck stock to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/2 inch deep and cover the pan.
      6. Cook until most liquid is absorbed, then uncover and cook until remaining liquid evaporates.
      While potstickers are cooking, make a dipping sauce by combining the reduced duck stock 1:1 with soy sauce, then adding a little rice vinegar, brown sugar (if the duck stock isn't sweet enough), and sesame oil.
      Serve potstickers immediately when done.

      Longganisa (Filipino breakfast sausage)

      1 kg ground pork (make sure it is fatty ground pork)
      1 medium onion finely chopped/minced
      4 T vinegar (white vinegar or any strong vinegar)
      2 T soy sauce
      2 tsp salt
      2 tsp pepper
      4 T brown sugar
      1 T paprika for coloring (most Filipinos add red food dye)
      6 cloves garlic, finely minced

      In a large clean bowl, mix everything up really well. Stuff into casings or make patties or finger-sized rolls for skinless longganisa. Let the meat cure for 6 hours or overnight before frying (I usually don't since I am too excited to eat them).
      Best served with garlic fried rice on the side with sunny-side eggs.
