Zingerman’s Deli Brings Spain to You!

It’s our annual homage to THE FOODS OF España!

This week, the Zingerman’s Deli celebrates the cuisine of Spain with our Taste of Extremedura, a series of delicious tastings, demonstrations, and events that showcase the fabulous foods of this wonderful region!

I. Daily Demonstrations
Monday 9/9 – Friday 9/13, 11am – 2pm
Please join us for samples of Spanish foods on Monday and Tuesday. Then, beginning Wednesday, our guests John and Ana Cancilla will walk us through the Extremedura Region in daily demos of how they use these foods in their own home kitchen. John and Ana will share everything from oils, to figs, to vinegars, to pimenton, and much more.

II. Taste of Spain
Wednesday, 9/11, 630pm – 830pm
What better way to approach a taste of Spain than to bring Spain to you? We are lucky to welcome some special visitors to Zingerman’s who will do just that. John (who has a superb Spanish palate), and Ana will guide us through a tasting of our Spanish products, and they’ll explain the different ways that they use these products. It will be a night of Spanish geography lessons along with the flavors that bring those areas to life.
