Zingerman’s Bakehouse Cake Special:
24 Carrot Cake
We peel and grate forty pounds of carrots to make one batch of this cake. All those carrots add an incredible moistness and a fresh sweetness to the cake. Combine them with toasted walnuts and aromatic spices and you get a great cake that’s totally delicious on its own. Cover it with a generous amount of cream cheese frosting and it becomes irresistible.

Spice of the Month:
NEW! Zingerman’s 5-Star Black Pepper Blend
We’ve teamed up with our friends at Épices de Cru to create a terrific new custom blend of rare and wonderful peppercorns, all from southwest India, the pepper capital of the world. Tellicherry Reserve, Tellicherry Extra Bold, Mlamala, Rajakumari and Shimoga. Together the five achieve a flavor and complexity that none can attain on its own. Like a great jazz quintet, each is a strong individual player but together they make musical magic!
Tellicherry Reserve – their most aromatic black pepper offering. Less than 0.05% of the entire harvest qualifies for this category but the de Viennes have put a generous amount of it into this special blend. It comes from a mixed forest plantation of pepper, vanilla, coffee, cocoa, fruit trees and other tropical forest products. The aroma is reminiscent of burnished, old wood and eucalyptus. The flavor is winelike with a richness and well-rounded heat.
Tellicherry Extra Bold – Extra-large, fully ripened peppercorns from the Wayanad region that bring a long, slow heat and big flavor. Carefully selected for maximum flavor and aroma.
Shimoga – Especially interesting from the Shimoga district in the Indian state of Karnataka. Also known as Mysore, it’s north of the Tellicherry region. Where Tellicherry goes big, wide and deep, Shimoga is focused, narrow, intense with an almost electric set of high notes, a sensual spicy warmth, liveliness on the palate and a very long and lovely finish.
Mlamala – grown at above 700 meters in full-on southern Indian sun in the Cardamom Hills. The district is very remote, situated on the bank of the Periyar River. Its unique flavor brings lots of low notes and a long, loving heat that pleasantly lingers.
Rajakumari – the name means “princess” in the local Malayalam dialect and that is just what this peppercorn is! Hardly ever seen outside of India, it’s an elegant addition to the blend. It’s ripened to total full maturity making it denser of texture, more intensely-flavored and highly aromatic.
Grab a tin and go pepper crazy!

Zingerman’s Creamery Cheese of the Month:
We wrap our Napoleon cheese with Michigan red wine-soaked chestnut leaves, harvested at their peak. Tied up with raffia, not only does this mold-ripened goat cheese round look beautiful on a cheese platter, the wine-soaked leaves enliven the acidity of the classic Napoleon, yielding a well-balanced, fruity finish.

Zingerman’s Coffee Co. Roaster’s Pick:
This coffee is complex and bright with flavors of dried fruit. Like most East African coffee producing countries, Burundi began growing coffee at the behest of European colonists. After several years of strict government control, the coffee sector moved in the direction of privatization. Since then, the quality and reputation of Burundi coffee have steadily improved.
