Cooking up Cajun at Zingerman’s Roadhouse

The Roadhouse welcomes back for the third year fisherman Jimmy Galle, owner of Gulfish, the source for the best and freshest seafood from the waters of Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Delivering seafood around the country daily, Jimmy and his crews have a long-standing commitment to sourcing directly from day-boat fishermen, shrimpers and crabbers across the Gulf Coast, delivering directly to a restaurant’s kitchen door.

Jimmy is sending us the best the gulf has to offer and Chef Alex is excited to cook the classics of a traditional Cajun meal served down in Louisiana, focusing on the flavors of the fish and the rustic taste that is cajun cuisine. On Tuesday, May 17th, 7pm, we’ll be paying homage to Chef Paul Prudhomme, celebrity chef of New Orleans, who, sadly, passed away last year. He has been credited with popularizing cajun cuisine and was influential in the world of modern seasonal American cooking.

We can’t decide which course will be the most exciting to taste, but Alex’s Gumbo made with fresh-from-the-Gulf shrimp and oysters, along with pit-chicken and house-made andouille sausage, is definitely at the top of the list.

Seafood and Cajun lovers, this dinner is meant for you.

ZingTrain Speaker Series: Sticky Situations

The thing is, it’s all just stuff happening in our heads until we try to tell someone about it. Which means communication is the key to pretty much everything, right?

But the thing is, communication is not easy. Effective communication is in fact, quite difficult. And people are not easy. A good number of people, in fact, find other people difficult.

So it turns out that the two components that are the key to our lives – people and what we say to each other – are in fact, highly likely to be difficult. So what do we do? We listen to Sarah Brabbs. She’s made it her business and her lifetime’s work to study relationships and communication.

JOIN us on Wednesday, May 18th, 8-930am, to hear Sarah tell us how to:

– BETTER UNDERSTAND & DEAL with difficult people around you – at work and at home!
– LEARN, PRACTICE & RETAIN more effective communication skills!
– FIND OUT what you can change if you are being a difficult person.

Sarah Brabbs has recently authored a book, So (People Say) You’re an Asshole: A Book for You, People Who Love You, & People Who Work with You. She’s gonna tell it like it is. Just sayin’.
