Schmalzstulle, literally translated as “sandwich with lard or lard sandwich”, is a common appetizer dish in Berlin, the city where food recipes from different cuisines and cultures have been adapted to a “local smell and taste”. This snack is easy to be prepared at home and, surprisingly, it can be found in most restaurants where it is traditionally served with pickles, especially with pickled cucumber, which is the best combination and complement to it. Except lard, typically of pork origin, the dish consists of bread, either rye or wheat one that is sliced and greased with the mixture of fat and tiny pieces of pork skin fried with meat. Those who do care about their aspect and shape should be very careful with this kind of food as it is very rich in calories and it definitely should not be consumed on a regular basis.
