Zingtrain Speaker Series: Robert Wright

Dr. Bob Wright believes in engaging in life to maximize adventure and encounter versions of our selves that we had never imagined possible. Not surprisingly, the people he coaches and trains see him as a master agent of empowerment—a trump card in their lives. In fact, Dr.Bob believes that each and every one of us has potential beyond anything we’ve ever imagined.
In this session of the Speaker Series, Dr. Bob will tell you that the most powerful way to look at leadership is not in terms of the people we lead, but in terms of our selves - who we are, how authentic we are and who we want to be. In other words, to look at leadership from the inside out, to look at how it transforms our lives. He calls it Transformational Leadership and in this session he’ll lead us through an exploration of the adventures, opportunities and markers of Transformational Leadership.
In classic Dr.Bob style, be prepared for a session that is highly interactive, involves some “real juicy” (Dr. Bob’s words!) conversations and an epiphany or two! Wednesday, October 22, 8am.

Cheese Mastery Class: Lactic Cheeses

Join Creamery managing partner Aubrey Thomason for the third class in a series exploring the foundations of cheese. In this session, Aubrey will talk about the simplest (and most difficult to master!) form of cheesemaking: lactic cheeses. Lactic cheeses are made using little or no rennet to help firm them up. Instead, the lactic cheesemaking process relies on the natural progression of milk lactose into lactic acid, which then binds the proteins together to form curd. This process takes much longer, but the results can be stellar. This is the process that gives both Cream Cheese, as well as our delicious Lincoln Log. Join us on Saturday, October 25, 1pm, as we discuss the chemistry behind lactic cheese, and tasting the various cheeses made using this process.

Traditional Beefsteak Dinner at Zingerman’s Roadhouse

Beginning in the 1860’s, butchers would sneak choice cuts of meat into the kitchens of nearby saloons, grill them over coals and feast on them during Saturday nights-on-the-town. This New York City tradition became known as a “Beefsteak” – a simple, masculine feast of beef, lamb chops, kidneys and beer – with simple etiquette rules: knives, forks, napkins, tablecloths – even plates – were entirely optional. The Beefsteak became to New York, what a barbecue is to the South, or crab feast is to Maryland; a place to gather a community, often around a political cause or fundraiser.

On Tuesday, November 4, 7pm, Chef Alex will revive an almost-lost 19th century American tradition, crafting a meal using all Cornman Farms’ meats. Jan Longone, the Curator of the American Culinary History at the William Clements Library at the University of Michigan and the proprietor of the Wine and Food Library, will join Chef Alex and share the history of the Beefsteak.

Beer, Wine, Cider, & Mead at Zingerman’s Creamery!

Your southside connection for fine beverages

Did you know that when you stop into the Zingerman’s Creamery for our award-winning cheese and gelato, you can also pick up your favorite Riesling or IPA? Michigan is lucky to have so many great craft brewers and winemakers, and the Creamery cheese shop carries some of the very best. We’ve got beer from Short’s, Founders, and Oddside, meads from B Nektar, wines from Fenn Valley, and Left Foot Charley, and cider from Vander Mill. We also have a knowledgeable staff that loves the stuff, and will happily guide you to our favorite beverage and cheese pairings!

The Fenn Valley estate is a 240 acre farm located five miles from Lake Michigan, just south of Holland, Michigan. It is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery established in 1973, and their goal has always been to produce world-class wines from grapes grown along the shore of Lake Michigan. Due to their proximity to the Lake, they experience a delicate weather balance referred to as “the Lake Effect.” They’re close enough to enjoy a moderation of winter temperatures and far enough away that the summer months we bring a mild cooling effect. A look at an atlas of the world will show that the major viticultural areas are almost always located near a large body of water that serves to moderate the climate in some manner. California, Washington, Oregon, Australia, Germany, Italy, France, and Michigan all meet this criteria. The wines they make are incredibly approachable, perfect for the dinner table, or a gathering of friends. Here are a couple of their wines we currently carry at the Creamery.

Capriccio – This big, soft, red wine shows the right balance between fruitiness and dryness. A big, jammy, berry fruit flavor with a subtle backbone of tannin, it is designed so you do not have to wait five years to enjoy a great glass of red wine. Serve this wine with chicken, red meats, pastas, and blue cheese.

Meritage – The name (merit+heritage) was coined by a small group of American winemakers to identify handcrafted wines blended from the traditional noble Bordeaux grape varietals. In January, as the winemakers at Fenn Valley were preparing red blends for the coming year, they noted that a blend of these three varieties was superior to any of the wines by themselves. The Cabernet Franc contributes a black cherry fruit flavor, the Cabernet Sauvignon gives a it black pepper quality, while the Merlot brings a light, earthy, fruit character. As expected, no one variety stands out; they all work together to create a harmonious blend of flavors that complement each other. We paired this wine with our Brûléed Manchester and the results were delicious.

Vino Verde – Literally, it means “green wine.” It is made from the Seyval grape variety harvested about two weeks early. The resulting wine is dry, crisp, and refreshing,, with low alcohol and a touch of natural carbonation. It is a fun wine, not to be taken seriously – perfect to serve over ice on a hot summer day. When thinking about cheeses to serve with this wine, think goat. Our Lincoln Log and Little Napoleon cheeses are perfect partners with the Vino Verde.
