So, where were y'all? Jamie was in full Santa mode and the hard salami -- amongst other delights -- was extraordinary.

That was awesome. The smell of charcuterie out of that trooper was incredible.

Can't speak to the boudin yet, but the kielbasa was delicious for dinner tonight.

Per Chef's suggestion, I poached it in water for about 20 minutes before pan-searing it. The flavors were rich and spicy, with a meatiness that I haven't tasted in a store-bought kielbasa before. Served with a garlic aioli mustard from Trader Joe's, it hit the spot. I missed that unnaturally pinkish color for a moment or two, but I quickly warmed to the natural coloring and am looking forward to cooking up the next one ASAP.

The salami - cured, coated with mold, and dangling from a string perfect for turning any kitchen into the set of That's Amore! - was redolent with garlic and had a soft, juicy texture that gives a pretty good idea of just how much fat goes into these things before the curing begins. Delicious in large chunks.

So glad I caught ChaCha's post this weekend...we'll be writing about the experience (and sharing a picture of Chef Stachowski in his holiday finery) over at Capital Spice this week.

I want to get there this time. My only plans for that day are (so far) in the evening, so I should be able to pull it off.

Back to the scene of the crime...

Watergate's a big place (and the hotel's closed for renovations). Can you give us a hint?

What he really means is "on the bottom level of an underground garage just over the Key Bridge in Rosslyn." Heh heh. :rolleyes:

Actually referring to crimes Jamie himself might have committed in an earlier life....

Note to Jamie:

For goodness sakes. If you want to sell your stuff, tell people exactly where to find you. They might not bother to try, if they aren't sure!

It's a well-documented fact that, ever since they started wearing helmets, hockey players are more bark than bite.

Yer on.

One of the more fun (and tasty) experiences I've had because of this board in a very long time.

I'm trying very hard not to comment on watching men share their meat with each other.

And Greg the lurker, time to sign up and start posting. It sounds like you aren't doing anything with your time during the day anyway.

Waitman was very generous and saved the last half of the Salami Cotto for me (I arrived about 5 minutes late). But there IS something disconcerting about a guy - especially Waitman - saving a nice long piece of spicy fatty meat for me.

I also picked up a couple of slabs of the pate de campagne and the smoked kielbasa. I think all that, along with the bottle of Hendricks and case of Fever Tree tonic, will form the basis of my solitary festivities tonite.

Thanks to Jamie and Carolyn for bringing the bounty to us. Next time....BRING MORE!! :rolleyes:

:rolleyes: I blew it. Lost track of time and got there at ten of one to find only a small sign taped to the wall: Stachowski products sold out. Charles, I assume that this is my payback for getting all of the veal cheeks at Eco-Friendly a few weeks ago.

Ummm, yeah.

and start chirpin about the name.

Jamie is finally realizing our his dream, and putting together a formal business selling and distributing his charcuterie.

I'm not sure why "Stachowski Brand Charcuterie" isn't the leading contender for the name! What was the other idea - someone else will have to pitch in - it was non-memorable enough that it already slipped my mind. MeatSomethingorother.

I came home with bresola, pate, venison sausage, and chicken brats.

It was "Meat Crafters" or something like that.

I would just like to say that the aspic around Jamie's pate is pretty much the most delicious taste of anything I have ever had. My wife turned her nose up at this. Ha! More for me.

Oh, and just go with your name, man!

Update: my 9-year-old daughter, who wouldn't even touch a burger at Ray's after the parking lot pickup, scarfed down bresola, venison sausage, and the chicken brats at dinner (along with some baguette, salad, and brie.) She wouldn't touch the pate, but the 11-year-old happily ate a double portion. I like that my kids prefer real food to chain and fast-food crap, but it's an expensive victory...

Hamburgers, and other ground meat (meatloaf, stuffed cabbage) seem to be on the "reject" list.

Steak itself, not a problem - she's taken down an entire hanger at Ray's before.

And her favorite Jewish joke: "If God didn't want us to eat pig, he wouldn't have wrapped it in bacon." No problem eating Babe. :rolleyes:

Bresola and smoked kielbasa for dinner last night. Yes, sometimes life is good. The bresola's gone, but we have plenty of kielbasa left ... for now.

A couple of friends dropped by around 9:00 last night. None of us was particularly hungry, but we decided to taste the pate de campagne, along with some 12-grain bread from Heidelberg. So much for not being hungry. It's gone. But we still have a few tasty treats to look forward to.

"Stachowski Brand" is the way to go.

So, when's the next drive-by?

I am so happy to be quitting my all-consuming day job in a few weeks so that I can resume reading this board, and finding out about stuff like this BEFORE IT HAPPENS. :rolleyes:

Too bad @chacha is not our favorite meat vendor. Otherwise, I could have Twitter text me when new meat day occurs! Sadly for me, though, this time I was available later in the day, but not at noon. Nuts!

Lamb merguez, please. Please?!

The dry salami and bresaola are fantastic. I think I can smell the smoked kielbasa from the driveway.

Use your name.

Pallette/Palate. <sigh>
Never mind that, they can't even spell Jamie's name consistently throughout the site (look at the end of Mitch's bio). Even for a placeholder site, that's bad.

Man, y'all are a tough crowd :rolleyes: . I don't care what they call it, or how they spell it, just so I can get (on a regular basis) some of that merguez I got to sample at Taste of the Nation last night! Good stuff - as was everything else they were offering.

Jamie was looking sharp last night that's for sure! The setup and presentation looked great, so I am sorry that I missed it....

Ooooh. My sister just this morning told me about the massive lines outside the Polish butchers in her neighborhood (Greenpoint aka NYC's Little Poland).

Now I'm thinking I might have to withdraw some money at the bank...
