ABOUT CHEF LERMAN
After 40 plus years in the restaurant business, both as an executive chef and a restaurant owner, I have found that customers are in search of more than just nourishment…they seek a dining adventure such as a new taste or a novel presentation. In an effort to satisfy the requests of my loyal customers, the Chef Lerman Salad Dressing Company was created in 1999.
The perfect complement to fruit salads, as well as a great accompaniment to Duck and Lamb.
Cuke-A Dilly: Tossed with potatoes and crumbled bacon makes a perfect German Potato Salad, as a sauce and marinade for grilled Salmon.
Garlic Balsamic: A perfect complement for a glass of Finger Lakes wine, a dip for crusty bread, or as a marinade for grilled fish or chicken.
Grape Pumpkin: A unique flavor, combining the cinnamon and spices of a fall pumpkin pie with the fruity flavors of a Concord grape harvest. In addition to being a great salad dressing, it makes a wonderful glaze for ham, duck or pork.
Horseradish French: Great on deviled eggs! A sweet & tangy tomato based French dressing with an exciting horseradish finish. Great salad dressing, especially with sharp cheese such as blue cheese or Gorgonzola.
BBQ Sauce: The best ever! BLACK-STRAP YANKEE BAR-B-Q SAUCE WITH CHIPOTLE PEPPERS
Finally a great Bar-B-Q sauce that is not produced in the South. This sauce is thick, smoky, and sweet with a kicky Chipotle finish. Memorable with ribs.
Chipotle Hot Sauce: A hot sauce that is true to its name: Smoldering Chipotle. This hot sauce starts with dark, smoky notes followed by heat that climbs the back of your throat with a kicky pepper finish that smolders. Use as a companion to Chef Lerman’s BBQ sauce for that extra spicy taste. Perfect smoky hot sauce for chicken wings. Great as a steak sauce. Mix with sour cream and a hint of lime for an excellent taco topping.
