This event will take place IN PERSON at Zingerman’s Greyline!

Zingerman’s Co-Founding Partner, Ari Weinzweig has written a new pamphlet entitled A Taste of Zingerman’s Food Philosophy: Forty Years of Mindful Cooking and Eating!  Join Ari and the Deli events team for dinner and discussion about the food philosophy that helped make Zingerman’s famous.

“I’ve read and had a most satisfying taste of Zingerman’s Food Philosophy, which makes such a compelling case for the power and pleasure of making purposeful choices for how we eat. Or you can just enjoy eating at any of the Zingerman’s businesses and learn from the pros.” – Danny Meyer, Founder and Chairman, Union Square Hospitality Group

What makes the food at Zingerman’s so special? Why does it stand out from the offerings of so many high-quality competitors? Why, when so many 21st century businesses chase from one trend to the next, has Zingerman’s been able to stay so singularly focused on full flavored, traditional food? Why are so many hundreds of Zingerman’s staffers so able to give insightful answers about the organization’s approach to food and cooking rather than just stand there, smile and nod?

We’ll explore these questions together with Ari during a 4-course dinner that features recipes and ingredients from the pamphlet. Sneak peek of the menu: harissa roasted carrots & dates and hand sliced corned beef and sauerkraut salad.

Your dinner ticket includes appetizers, non-alcoholic mocktails and spritzers and a 4-course dinner. Upgrade to alcoholic versions of the drinks for an additional $20. Pamphlets can be purchased at any Zingerman’s business for $20 (including the Deli) if you want to have a read ahead of time. Or purchase one with your dinner ticket for the reduced price of $15.
