Katzinger's celebrates knish month

Anthony Dominic, Crave

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.
