Family Food Tasting: Hanukkah Latkes and Author Reading

Thursday, December 19, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm at Zingerman’s Upstairs Next Door

We are super excited for this special FAMILY FOOD TASTING event with local author Lauren Ranalli who will be reading her book The Great Latke Cook Off. Joining Lauren this evening will be our kids tasting expert Jenny Hall and our very own Deli Chef Rodger Bowser, who will be teaching your kids to taste like an expert by exploring what are latkes and why the ones made here in our Deli kitchen are so special. We’ll also be answering this most important question – do you prefer your latkes with applesauce, sour cream, or both?! This event is ideal for any family looking to find a new story to add to their Hanukkah bookshelf or for any family looking to learn a little more about holiday traditions different from their own.

The book will be available for purchase at the event or get your copy now at laurenranalli.com. The author will be signing books after the event.

We think kids ages 3-8 would most enjoy this book, however kids up to age 14 would enjoy the tasting. All participants will receive a 20% off coupon to use after the tasting to eat and/or shop at the Deli. Please include your child’s name, age, and any allergy information in the comments field when you register. Thank you!
