Reception for Jewish cookbook exhibit at UM
Jan Longone, Adjunct Curator at the UM Graduate Library, will host a very special reception today for the American Foodways: The Jewish Contribution exhibit.
The exhibit will showcase the role that Jews played in the formation of our culinary lineage from 1660 to 2013. The exhibit includes Jewish-American charity cookbooks representing all fifty states from the Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive at the University of Michigan Hatcher Graduate Library. Other artifacts include the first Jewish cookbook published in America (1871). Early works will be on display in the Audubon Room, with examples of 20th and 21st century items in the North Lobby cases of the Hatcher Library.
The exhibit runs through December 8th. More information about the exhibit here.
Please join us today from 4p-530p. Zingerman’s will provide light refreshments.

Acclaimed Writer Michael Paterniti Comes to Zingerman’s
A long time ago, when Mike Paterniti was still a student at UM, he helped edit the Zingerman’s Deli newsletter. In one particular edition, Ari’s essay talked about a delicious and expensive Spanish cheese. This essay stayed with Mike, and twenty-two years later, after years of rumination and several trips to Spain, he’s bringing his book, The Telling Room, back to the place where it all started.
Please join us this Thursday for an evening filled with stories and delicious food as Ari and Mike talk about the book, Spain, and much more.
At Zingerman’s Events on Fourth, 630p-830p.

Blueberry Buckle is back at Mail Order!
The return of an old favorite from Zingerman’s Bakehouse
Zingerman’s Mail Order’s Mo says:
“Long time shoppers of Zingerman’s Mail Order have fond memories of the classic buckle made with wild blueberries, sweet butter, cinnamon and topped with butter-crumble crust. It’s a classic American recipe dating back to colonial times (even though it’s not technically a buckle).
“And now it’s back! Years have gone by since we featured this delicious coffeecake in our catalog and the buzz around Ann Arbor is nearly deafening. It’s a staff and customer favorite and now it’s available to ship across the country. ”
