Five years ago Jake Klein was hired to consult on a German sausage concept in Brooklyn and quickly developed a personal connection to the project. He took a majority ownership stake and rebranded the concept as Jake’s Handcrafted to better reflect his food and culinary philosophy. While his bratwurst is a classic favorite, his other sausages are decidedly unconventional. Jake’s culinary approach to sausage making is a marriage between traditionalism and creativity. He always starts with whole proteins from humanely-raised animals, sourcing them locally whenever possible, as well as from the same purveyors that supply New York’s top restaurants. From there, he builds each sausage from scratch by mixing and matching inventive ingredients and stuffing them into casings. Many of the meat options are smoked in the restaurant’s backyard for added depth of flavor.

About The Food

Owner Jake Klein is a seasoned chef with 20 years experience in Europe, Asia and the U.S. That culinary experience led to the “true to the original” flavors you’ll find in all his sausages. He uses all whole muscle meats from humanely raised animals, snappy casings, and real wood smoke (12 hours over Applewood and Charcoal) to create sausages inspired by global and regional favorite dishes. The texture in addition to the flavor of these sausages is like nothing you’ve had before. They are juicy, with a classic snap, and a riot of well-integrated flavors that take your mouth on a trip around the world. Top sellers include the “Cubano” (a Cuban sandwich in a sausage), Tokyo Chicken, and seasonal favorite Chicken Satay. Even the condiments are elevated a few notches, like Jake’s Banana Mustard, and their Peanut Sauce—not they usual stateside version made with peanut butter, coconut milk and curry—Jake makes his with house-made sambal, caramelized onions and roasted peanuts.

Meet The Owner

The critic proclaimed Jake’s satays as the best he ever had. Back in the States, Jake opened his first restaurant called Jada in Miami and earned an Exceptional rating from the Miami Herald.

Gas Grill – Light your grill and set it to medium and allow it to pre-heat for about 10 minutes or until you can hold your hand over the grate for 3 to 4 seconds. Grill your sausages until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Stovetop - Over medium/medium high heat, heat 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil in a heavy bottomed cast iron or sauté pan. Once the oil is hot place your sausages in the pan. Cook the sausages on one side for 3 or 4 minutes or until nicely browned, flip the sausage and cook for an additional 3 or 4 minutes. Once the other side is brown serve immediately or, hold for up to 45 minutes in a pre-heated oven on the lowest setting.

Oven - Pre-heat your oven to 450°. Place your sausages on a wire rack placed inside or directly on a baking sheet. Place your baking sheet two racks away from heating element. Cook the sausages until they are brown and crispy, flip and repeat. Approximately 5 minutes per side.
