A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend a media seminar at Fischer Bros. and Leslie, one of New York’s oldest kosher butcher shops. It was interesting to learn about a different time – when small butcher shops, house accounts and personal attention were the norm, not the exception. In today’s day and age of mass production, it’s nice to visit a place that still does things the old fashioned way – a family owned butcher shop where customers know the staff – and the staff knows them too.
It was super cool to learn how to butcher a chicken – I can now buy a whole chicken and cut it into parts, which is something I’ve wanted to learn for a while. The steak they sent us home with? SO good. I shared it, but I didn’t want to. In addition to the high quality, super fresh meat and poultry that they sell, they served us an assortment of the prepared foods that are available at Fischer Bros., prepared by Chef Brian Koenigson, including this Asian Kale Slaw.
Here’s a little confession…that was my first time eating kale. I know. I know. I’m a food blogger, a cookbook author, and most people think of me as a foodie…and yet I had never tried the crazy popular superfood that all the cool kids are eating. What can I say? I’ve never been a cool kid.
But I digress. The important thing here is to note that I finally tasted kale, and it was really delicious. Obviously, I’ll have to try it in more recipes, but for now, I asked Chef Brian to share his Asian Kale Slaw recipe with me and my readers, and he was kind enough to do so.
So here you go. Super easy. Super delicious – oh, and if you’re skeptical, just know that my father, someone who doesn’t exactly like new and trendy “superfoods” tried this salad too. His reaction? “Hmm. Kale is actually not bad.” If you knew my father, you’d know that “not bad” is actually his highest form of praise for a new recipe.
