The Edible South Dinner at Zingerman’s Roadhouse

“Food is history. Food is place. Food is power.” – Marcie Cohen Ferris In her book The Edible South, Marcie Cohen Ferris, Associate Professor of American studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, presents food as a new way to chronicle the American South’s larger history. Ferris tells a richly illustrated story of southern food and the struggles of whites, blacks, Native Americans, and other people of the region to control the nourishment of their bodies and minds, livelihoods, lands, and citizenship. The experience of food serves as an evocative lens onto colonial settlements and antebellum plantations, New South cities and Civil Rights-era lunch counters, chronic hunger and agricultural reform, counterculture communes and iconic restaurants as Ferris reveals how food—as cuisine and as commodity—has expressed and shaped southern identity to the present day.
Chef Alex and Marcie have created a menu that weaves through decades of southern food, each course telling the story of the people and the region of that time. Marcie will lead us through tasting and learning about The Edible South, you will be sure the leave the dinner with your stomach and your mind full. Tuesday, March 10, 7pm.

Flips & Fizzes Cocktail Class at Cornman Farms

Fight the feburary frost with flips and fizzes!

What do a Yard of Flannel, a British female spy from the 1600s, and an 1880s New Orleans bartender have in common? The next Cornman Farms cocktail class, of course! On Friday, February 27, 7pm, we’ll be exploring Flips & Fizzes out at the farm. The purpose of this session is to explore cocktails that require enthusiastic mixing techniques. We’ll be shaking and straining and flipping (pouring from one vessel to another repeatedly) with gusto!

We’ll make a Rum Flip (a.k.a. A Yard of Flannel, Bellow-Stop, or Crambambull), a drink that developed a cult-like following in the days of the American colonies. We’ll be toasting the Crescent City with the New Orleans favorite, Brandy Milk Punch. This classic has its origins in the surprisingly clear English Milk Punch, a beverage that was made popular in the 1600s by female playwright and spy for the British crown, Aphra Behn.

Ramos Gin Fizz

Ramos Gin Fizz

And we’ll finish the evening with the granddaddy of all shaken cocktails: the Ramos Gin Fizz. This is one of the most intense cocktails ever to rise to national stardom, and we’ve broken it down into simple-to-follow steps. The original recipe for the Ramos Gin Fizz calls for it to be shaken for TWELVE minutes! I shake mine for about two minutes, but if you can make it all twelve I’ll take your photo and give you a dollar!

We’ll cover the history behind the cocktails, explain the ingredients, and introduce both traditional and modern mixing techniques. Each guest will have the opportunity to actually craft (and drink!) all three cocktails in a relaxed and informative setting while enjoying delicious farm-fresh snacks. Want to channel your inner bartender and impress your friends with your new-found shaking stamina? Then this class is for you! Cost includes three cocktails, use of all necessary equipment, food, instruction, and take-home recipes. Is there a better way to spend your Friday evening? I didn’t think so! Reservations can be made through the Zingerman’s Community Events website.

Come join us on the 27th! This event is too much fun to miss!

Cheers!
