The short answer: Very carefully!
The longer answer: After much trial & error, we've found the best possible way to ship our individually packaged sandwich ingredients to recreate an authentic Katz's sandwich at home.
- Meats: hand-carved, then immediately vacuum sealed & flash frozen to preserve maximum flavor, juiciness, and best texture.
- Deli Rye Bread: baked daily & packaged by the half-loaf.
- Condiments: small-batch 8 oz jars of the exact same recipes we use in-store.
- Pickles: brined & jarred in-house, to arrive with maximum freshness.
Recreating a Katz's sandwich is as simple as reheating the hand-carved meats and assembling at home! See our cooking instructions for greater detail.
