Just for Kids: Explore the World of Deli Meat

Wednesday, July 25, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Our Deli meat counter is busy all day long, slicing and wrapping delicious meats from around the world. In this JUST FOR KIDS tasting, we’re going to expand your palette beyond the ordinary turkey and ham that you might find on the sandwich in your lunchbox. We’ll learn about the variety of meats made around the world – from Italian prosciutto from Italy to Hungarian salami – and what makes the ones we bring here to the Deli different from what you might find at the grocery store. And best yet … we’ll taste them all!
