cranberry-pecan-slicedCranberry Pecan Bread is back at the Zingerman’s Bakehouse

This is a perennial favorite, a delicious loaf that our guests just love!
When we offer samples, customers who grab a piece as they’re leaving come back a few minutes later asking “What did I just eat? That’s amazing!” This bread is a magic combination of our San Francisco Sourdough, toasty pecans, and dried New England cranberries. Available every day during November and December!

yolka_low-resChocolate Christmas Ornament at Zingerman’s Mail Order

Mail Order’s Mo Frechette:

“One of the prettiest foods we’ve found in years. Well, the packaging is, I mean. What’s inside is brown on brown, but very, very tasty. The ornament is a Belgian chocolate sphere, hand wrapped in decorative foil, capped and strung with a ribbon, ready to hang on the tree or attach to gifts. The patterns are styled after those favored by Peter the Great, who, apparently, had time to pick his favorite wrapping paper in between founding St. Petersburg and declaring war on Sweden.  They lend your tree a little Russian aristocratic flair, which goes surprisingly well with Modern American Christmas. Guaranteed to turn the chore of breaking down the tree into a welcome event.”

baby-blueberry-buckleSpecial Bakes at Zingerman’s Bakehouse

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 Blueberry Buckle! A buckle is an American coffeecake that dates back to colonial times. Our sweet and moist version has a bounty of wild blueberries, sweet butter, a touch of orange and cinnamon, and is topped off with a remarkable butter-crumble crust. Special Bakes are also available at Zingerman’s Deli!

See you soon!
