We’ve Been Cooking Up Something Really Special Over At The Deli
Introducing: Deli Dinners A Go Go! A chance to upgrade your dinner dance moves with Zingerman’s one night a week!
Andrew Wilhelme, Zingerman’s Deli’s Sous Chef, had an “a-ha” moment when thinking about how awesome it would be to give our guests the “Zingerman’s Experience” for dinner in the comfort of their very own homes. “It’s like having Zingerman’s as your personal chef, when and where you want it!” he says.
His idea morphed into “Deli Dinners A Go-Go”, weekly, ready-to-heat meals that can be picked up at the Deli or delivered to your home to have when you want them! These meals can be reheated at home in 20 minutes or less and are made from the freshest ingredients we can find. The inspired menu is available months in advance and meals can be purchased online. When we tested this concept with a few families here in town, here’s what they had to say:
“What a fast, easy way to get a gourmet meal on the table! When I first heard how much it would cost, I thought, no way would I spend that much for a reheat meal…. now that I’ve seen Zingerman’s portion sizes, experienced how quick it is to re-heat and serve, I think it’s a great value!” – Kathie
“We thought the packaging was perfect. It was great to be able to just remove the lids and put the aluminum containers in the oven. We also liked that we could just pop the bread in foil straight into the oven. The reheating instructions were perfect.” – Jane
Dan, a longtime Deli guest testified that they are “very easy to order, with easy directions to follow for preparing the food, EXCELLENT customer service, and great-tasting food!”
These meals are also the perfect useful gift for friends or family who are in need of some delicious, homestyle meals who don’t have the time. Order online and set their home address for delivery. Your friend who just had baby? Delicious dinners with enough left over for a midnight snack! Your aunt who just had surgery? Restaurant quality meals while she rests! Honestly, who could resist?

When school is back in session and lives are just generally busier than ever, Zingerman’s Deli does the work of meal planning for months ahead. Kids’ soccer practice after school? Networking event or drinks with friends after work? Heat up these great meals on your schedule, without sacrificing full-flavored ingredients.
From pork carnitas with calabacitas con elote and pineapple salsa, to a classic French cassoulet with herb-roasted fingerling potatoes and ABC kale salad, Zingerman’s Deli Dinners A Go-Go are a great deal for the food! Each one includes a main course and perfectly paired side dishes. You can add on additional items—soup by the quart, a pan of mac and cheese, desserts, drinks, and more. You will have to wash your own dishes, but it will definitely reduce your workload after a hard day on the job (or even an easy one, for that matter)!
Shared Deli guest Kathie, “The instructions were super easy to follow and all the food was perfectly heated throughout when I took it out of the oven. Portions were HUGE. I was stuffed at the end of the meal and still had leftovers to keep for the next day.”
The Zingerman’s Deli Dinners A Go-Go menu often includes Portuguese piri piri chicken (a long-time catering favorite!), served with buttered Carolina gold rice and roasted lemon carrots. This dish will definitely have your whole family eagerly anticipating dinner! An Amish half chicken, marinated overnight in a sauce of pequin pepper, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt, and then roasted ‘til crispy and tender. The local carrots are roasted in sea salt and cumin and then dressed in a lemony vinaigrette.
Another menu favorite is Jewish comfort food at its best: beef brisket! The Deli chefs take tender slices of beef brisket rubbed with garlic, marjoram, sea salt, and Tellicherry black pepper, and marinate it overnight in red wine vinegar, and then braise it to perfection. Buttery mashed Yukon gold potatoes drenched in house-made beef gravy and blanched green beans bathed in a garlic herb butter complete this tempting meal.
