What I’m obsessed with now. (#368) Sigmund’s Pretzels!

Lina Kulchinsky, Russian born ex-pastry chef from Jean Georges and Bouley hand makes old style pretzels in flavors of Garlic Parsley, Feta Olive, Cinnamon Raisin and Truffle Cheddar. (As well as regular). Once she proofs them, Lina boils her pretzels in Beer (a pale ale). My favorite so far is the truffle Cheddar, dipped in Honey Mustard, but I’ve yet to try them all. While you can get some of her pretzels at Dean and Deluca, her shop on the Lower East Side is super-cute and well worth a visit. (And a beer.)

  1. This sounds delicious. This place is a couple of blocks from my house and I never went in because I thought it was just plain pretzels. I’ll make it a point to stop by.
