A huge hit among customers in Ann Arbor and, now, nationwide. Pronounced “Lip-tower,” this spicy spread is a long-standing Hungarian tradition. To make it, we start with the very fresh Farm Cheese we make every week at Zingerman's Creamery. It's spiked with fresh garlic, Hungarian paprika, capers, toasted caraway and just a touch of anchovy. It’s moderately spicy and exceptionally flavorful. There’s a big burst of flavor in every bite.
In Hungary, Liptauer is often served in casinos and bars—it’s definitely the sort of stuff that goes great with good salami and beer. It's excellent on Rye Bread from our Bakehouse, on bagels or as the base for spicy finger sandwiches.
"A delicious interpretation of a Hungarian favorite, fresh farm cheese flavored with anchovy paste, fresh garlic, Hungarian paprika, capers, and toasted caraway. Pass the rye bread."
