WEEK OF 10/1/13

October specials!

Made in Michigan Month at the Zingermans Deli
As summer ends and fall begins, the temperatures cool down, out come the jackets, the trees change color and we reap the benefits of the late harvest. During the month of October, the Deli will throw the spotlight on Fabulous Foods from the Mitten! Whether it’s a slice of delicious Tomme Tirrell cheese from Charlotte, MI or a sweet taste of American Spoon preserves from Petoskey, MI, you’ll want to stop in for a sample or two!

Pumpkins at the Zingerman’s Bakehouse
It’s a Pumpkin Party!
Start the day with moist and scrumptious pumpkin muffins, a favorite of Bakehouse staff. A sure sign fall is here is our pumpkin pie, made with local Guernsey Dairy heavy cream, Michigan honey, and a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon in an all-butter crust. Grab a precious little pumpkin cupcake with rich cream cheese frosting. Finish out a fine fall day with a slice of pumpkin cheesecake made with Zingerman’s Creamery fresh cream cheese (made right next door to us) spiced up and poured over a ginger jump up cookie crust.

Cheese of the Month at Zingerman’s Creamery: Liptauer
In our never-ending effort to bring back great flavors of days of yore, we’re excited to offer up this taste of Hungarian tradition. To make Liptauer (“lip-tower”) we start with a base of our Farm Cheese, spice it up with fresh garlic, Hungarian paprika, capers, toasted caraway and just a touch of anchovy. It’s moderately spicy and exceptionally complex, with a big burst of flavor in every bite!


Coffee of the Month at Zingerman’s Coffee Company: Panama Boquete
This month’s coff­ee is from Finca Villa Donia, who describes their location as: ”in the highland town of Boquete, in the province of Chirigui, Panama. Situated in a fertile valley near Volcán Barú, a dormant volcano, which is also the highest mountain in Panama. Our farm enjoys mineral rich soil and plenty of rainfall as cool air passes  through the mountains and deposits its moisture in the form of rain”
This coffee produces a cup with substantial body, or a weighty mouth feel, with notes of tangerine or mandarin orange and semi-sweet chocolate. It is excellent as a press pot, which accentuates the body with a silky mouth feel, and also any of the paper fi­lter methods (Chemex, pourover) to sharpen up the acidity.

Fuji Red Tea and Coffee Pot at Zingerman’s Mail Order!
Design lust.
Zingerman’s Mail Order’s Mo says:
“If I was making a list of things we sell that are designed drop dead gorgeous, this would be at the top.
“From Japan, a luminescent, octopus red tea and coffee pot, made from enameled metal. The glaze has a little orange in the red which makes the whole piece feel like its glowing long before you put anything warm in it. Speaking of which, use it to brew a pot of tea. Or set a coffee pourover cone on top and make coffee for two. It’s made with the same style of thin elephant-trunk spout that’s on our Hario kettle which means it pours precisely and never makes a mess.”
Send one to a friend!

Fridays and Saturdays at the Zingerman’s Bakehouse also mean Special Bakes, limited-edition loaves available for just a weekend. This weekend it’s delicious Loomis Bread. Tangy farm bread with chunks of Zingerman’s Creamery Cheshire cheese (created by Creamery partner John Loomis) and roasted red peppers from Zingerman’s Cornman Farms in Dexter, MI. It’s a whole lotta flavor packed in one loaf.
Don’t miss it! Special Bakes are also available at Zingerman’s Deli!

See you soon!
