Headed to a picnic? Planning a party? Wondering which cheese goes best with a green lawn and some chilled rosé? Or maybe how the Argus Ciderkin compares to the Nine Pin Hard Cider?
Please allow us to introduce Kristina and Gizella, aka, our resident know-it-alls, keepers of the details and serious, serious Picnic Pros. (Yes, uppercase letters are in order.)
Kristina, our assistant manager, is the definition of delightful — and no detail gets by her. Can’t find something? She knows exactly where it is and is probably already wrapping it up for you. Gizella, our general manager, has been with Larder since day one. She’s wry and dry and really pretty magical. That cheese you had at that party that one time? She knows what it is. And she knows one you might like even more.
What’s your favorite sandwich?
“I started working here because of the roast beef sandwich. That was in the summer. And then I stayed on because of the hot roast beef sandwich,” said Alex Garcia, our manager and purchaser. “That hot roast beef, with the melty, stinky Schnebelhorn, and I love the horseradish sauce. And then the cold summer roast beef has the same sauce and cheese. It’s crisp, it’s light — for a roast beef sandwich, it’s light. I just love it.”
We start with a top round roast from the Happy Valley Meat Company — a company near State College, PA, that works with small family farms. We dry cure the meat for 12 hours and then slow roast it until it’s juicy.
Thin slices go on to an Amy’s Baguette, along with our special “beefy onions,” a fresh, tangy, horseradish-mayo and — the arguable pièce de résistance — slices of easy-melting Schnebelhorn.
This pungent wonder is made from the milk of a herd of 50 Brown Swiss cows in the province of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and named for the mountain — the highest peak — that separates St. Gallen from Zurich. (Get it? Schnebelhorn the mountain is a standout, just like Schnebelhorn the cheese.)
We put all that goodness under a Panini press, until the Schnebelhorn is melty, and goodness, do you ever have yourself a sandwich… •
