More about Valentine Schmalentine Menu

in case you are wondering what all these strange foods might be --


Valentine Schmalentine What Am I? Chopped Liver?
traditional chopped liver with onions and eggs. Goes great with a pickle on some dark rye. It is made from free range chicken livers.

What makes it Jewish? There is no pork here. Made with beef and very tasty!


The recipe comes from the Italian Alps - salted and aged beef. Delicious. More pickles please!
