Cornman Farms Tomato Dinner at Zingerman’s Roadhouse

Wednesday, August 27, 7pm
Easily the highlight of the harvesting season, our second Cornman Farms dinner showcases the best of the tomato season. Chef Alex and farmers have been caring for the tomatoes and now we get to benefit from their hard work. The tomato bar makes its return – numerous different tomatoes, handmade fresh mozzarella, really good olive oil, Balsamic vinegar and fresh grown basil – fill up your plate as many times as you can! Cornman Farms beef and pork will add to this late summer feast, making it a meal to remember.
Update: Due to popular demand, we’ve added a second dinner! Space is limited and this dinner sells out quickly. Act fast and reserve now!

Foundation of Cheesemaking Class: Milk at Zingerman’s Creamery

Join Creamery managing partner Aubrey Thomason on Saturday, August 30, 1pm, for the first in a series exploring the foundations of cheese. In this session, we’ll begin at the beginning with a discussion of milk. When did the milking of dairy animals start? What kinds of animals are milked throughout the world, and how does the milk vary from animal to animal? How does the milk influence the flavor of the cheese? Aubrey will lead a tasting of several different cheeses, and talk about how milk influences the consistency, the texture, and the overall flavor of the cheese. Learn and eat!
