Zingerman’s Supports Hazon’s Food Conference!

We’re super excited at Zingerman’s to help support this very unique culinary event put on by our friends at Hazon at the Univerisity of California-Davis, August 18-21. The Hazon Food Conference “is the only place where farmers and rabbis, nutritionists and chefs, vegans and omnivores come together to explore the dynamic interplay of food, Jewish traditions, and contemporary life.  Participants enjoy four jam-packed days of do-it-yourself food workshops, lectures, discussions, joyful Shabbat celebrations, kids & family programming, and delicious, consciously-prepared food.  There will be dozens of amazing presenters from a wide range of fields, including food justice, food systems research, culinary history, Jewish tradition and more. Ann Arbor’s very own Oran Hesterman is headlining!”
