11th Annual African American Foodways Dinner at Zingerman’s Roadhouse

“In Search of Giants: a bit of theater, good food and an exploration of the history of the Abolition Movement in Michigan.”

Join us Tuesday, January 26th, 7pm, as Dr. Von H. Washington (theater professional for more than thirty years) and Ali Garrison (mezzo-soprano, direct descendant of Dr. Nathan Thomas, and employee from Zingerman’s early years) present a dramatic scene written especially for Zingerman’s 11th Annual African American Foodways Dinner.
This theatrical reading will be based on their research for Dr. Washington’s play, “In Search of Giants,” which is coming to Ann Arbor on Thursday, January 28th at the Arthur Miller Theatre on the University of Michigan’s North Campus. Washington and Garrison play two Abolitionists, Henry Bibb and Pamela Thomas, meeting in January 1845 at the Underground Railroad Station in Schoolcraft, Michigan for a kitchen table conversation about food, freedom and human interaction.

Balsamic Vinegar Tasting at Zingerman’s Deli

Working near the historic square in the center of Castelvetro, an old Italian town southwest of Modena, La Vecchia Dispensa founders Roberta Pelloni and her husband Marino Tintori make a variety of exceptional vinegars. Quite simply, these are some of the best balsamics we’ve ever tasted. So good in fact, that we’ve partnered with La Vecchia Dispensa to make our Zingerman’s private label balsamic vinegars. On Wednesday, January 27th, 630pm, their son Simone Tintori will join us to share the history and flavor of his family’s balsamic vinegars. Don’t miss this chance to talk with one of the artisans responsible for this lovely vinegar.
