WEEK OF 10/22/13

World-Class Prosciutto from Iowa at Zingerman’s Deli
This Wednesday, October 23 at 6:30 pm, the Zingerman’s Deli will host a very special event. Herb and Kathy Eckhouse, founders of La Quercia, have selected Zingerman’s to host the World Release Party for their new Tamworth Woodland Finished Prosciutto. This means you’ll be able to taste their exquisite new prosciutto at Zingerman’s before it’s available anywhere else in the world!
Please join us for an evening of tasty bits of pork, the unveiling of nature’s magic, and some great storytelling. Herb will share samples of the new Tamworth Woodland Finished Prosciutto, as well as several other prosciutti made from different breeds. Russ Kremer will also be on hand to talk about raising the Tamworth hogs, and the effects that each breed has on the finished flavor profile of the meat.
Call Zingerman’s Deli at 743-663-4300, or reserve your seat online!
Don’t miss it! 


Vampires at the Zingerman’s Roadhouse
A shadow will fall over the Zingerman’s Roadhouse this Wednesday, October 23 at 6:00 pm. But fear not, it’s just the 8th Annual Vampires’ Ball! The Ball is an upscale, intimate gathering founded by Ari Weinzweig and author Elizabeth Kostova (The Historian). Guests will enjoy a multi-course meal prepared by award-winning chef Alex Young, accompanied by an evening of spooky entertainment.
Funds from this year’s Vampires’ Ball will directly benefit Food Gatherers Community Kitchen and our Job Training Program.

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.
