Our Deli Specialty Food staff thinks tinned fish is a pantry's ultimate secret weapon. For many the phrase "tinned fish" conjures a somewhat sad tuna salad or tuna noodle casserole from their childhood. We think tinned fish are fabulous–rich in protein, omega-3's and full-flavored goodness, tinned seafood preserves the ocean's best at the peak of flavor and quality. Tinned fish is not only a delicious, healthy choice, it's also supremely sustainable, ultra portable and easy to store. Join our fish aficionado Kevin B. for Tins of Fins: An Introduction to Great Tinned Fish and dive into the vast history of tinned fish, the variety of types and flavors and how we use tinned fish in a variety of dishes. This class is perfect for those curious to explore the delights of great tinned fish. We hope to turn you into a so-fish-ticated and and educated eater and send you home with a couple of easy to execute ideas for working more tinned fish into your weekly kitchen repertoire. Your $30 Event Ticket Includes: A wealth of information and an afternoon of great conversation with Specialty Foods fish monger Kevin; A guided tasting that includes 6-7 samples of tinned fish, crackers, and 1-2 accompaniments from our pantry & kitchen; A 20% off coupon to use to shop our Specialty Foods grocery area or online grocery site after the tasting.

Friendseder™ Community Brunch

When: Sunday, March 19, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm. This event is IN PERSON at Zingerman's Greyline. Friendseder is to Passover what Friendsgiving is to Thanksgiving. If you're reading this, you're a friend of the Deli's, so whether or not you celebrate Passover, we'd love to have you join us at our Friendseder Brunch! At a Friendsgiving, you might expect to see twists on classic Thanksgiving dishes, and Friendseder is no different (except with classic Jewish dishes, of course). Friendseder is celebrated before the start of Passover, so together we'll enjoy a 4-course brunch that's inspired by the Seder plate without needing to follow Passover dietary rules. The menu includes dishes like Yemenite Charoset Parfait, Hungarian Spiced Deviled Eggs, and Brisket Roulade with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce (vegetarian options available upon request). And we wouldn't forget fun brunch beverages—your ticket includes mocktail pairings! Or, upgrade your experience and opt for alcoholic cocktails instead. Cheers! (Or rather, l'chaim!) Unable to join us in person? We have a virtual brunch bundle option that can be shipped anywhere in the US and/or order a starter kit from The Well. This is our second annual Friendseder, and we're very excited to once again be partnering with The Well to bring their initiative to our Ann Arbor community. Your hosts for the brunch will be Zingerman's Event Coordinator Tessie Ives-Wilson and The Well's Executive Director Rabbi Jeff Stombaugh. Together, they will lead you on a guided tour of this special brunch menu—the tastes, products, ingredients, meaning, ritual, and traditions. The Well is a Detroit area non-profit with a mission to create and foster an accessible, inclusive, and relationship-driven community. They use Jewish wisdom and rituals to help foster community, but you don't have to be Jewish to join the community! Friendseder welcomes everyone to the table to learn about Passover rituals and traditions, but also encourages you to make the holiday your own!

Cheers To Cheese (& Wine!)

When: Tuesday, March 21, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm. A Cheese Lover's Dinner that Gives Back. This event will take place IN PERSON at Zingerman's Greyline! Does the sight of a cheese board start you salivating? Do you let waiters grate so much Parmesan on your pasta that can no longer see the plate? Does visiting a cheese counter leave you feeling weak in the knees? This is the event for you! Join us for an extra special (in person!) cheese-centric dinner at the Greyline, our downtown event space on Tuesday, March 21st. You and your fellow cheese enthusiasts will be treated to a 3-course meal highlighting a special selection of cheeses from small artisan cheesemakers including Comté from Marcel Petite, Manchego 1605, and Pril and Brabander from L'amuse. And because we know how well cheese and wine go together, local wine shop Ground Control Wines is curating wine pairings, one for each course, available as an optional add-on. The cheeses featured in the evening's dishes all come to us at Deli courtesy of New York's Essex St. Cheese, a renowned importer of a limited range of iconic European cheeses. (Bonus: Your ticket includes a 20% off coupon! You'll be able to purchase some of your favorite cheeses to take home that evening or save it to shop our entire Specialty Foods grocery area within the next week) Cheesemongers from both Zingerman's Deli and Essex St. Cheese will be on hand, so you can expect to take in a wealth of information and delightfully cheesy conversation as you enjoy your dairy-laden dishes. Simply by attending the event, you'll also be giving back and supporting an important cause. A portion of every ticket will support the Daphne Zepos Teaching Endowment scholarship fund. Daphne founded Essex St. Cheese in 2006, so she could bring the best Comté she could find to the United States. Though she passed away in 2012, her passion for outstanding cheese and her commitment to teaching others about cheese lives on through her namesake teaching endowment. Two annual scholarships are given to food industry professionals to travel and further their learning—and their ability to educate others—about cheese. Zingerman's co-founder Ari Weinzweig says: Daphne's work to educate retailers, chefs, cheesemongers, and cheese makers has contributed enormously to a huge improvement in the quality of the cheese on counters across the country. Her passion, the poetry of her cheese descriptions, her never-ending drive for better flavor, for teaching people what makes good cheese good, and for making already-good cheese even better is truly unrivaled. We are excited to have you join us for this special dinner that honors Daphne and her work to spread love and knowledge of cheese. To further support the work of DZTE, consider purchasing this Zingerman's designed tshirt or making a direct contribution to the organization. 2 Ticket Options: Your $85 Event Ticket Includes: A menu that includes 2 appetizers, a main course and dessert; A wealth of information and great conversation with our Deli + Essex St. Cheese cheesemongers; A portion of your ticket purchase supports DZTE scholarships; A 20% off coupon to use to shop our Specialty Foods grocery area after the tasting.

(Emily is also the Michigan director of CIV:LAB, a grantmaking network that channels funds to projects focused on mitigating climate change.) She partnered with a fourth-generation family vineyard in Clarksburg, California, near Napa Valley with a shared passion for sustainability. The grapes are grown with responsible irrigation practices and local cover crops; the wines are vegan, low intervention, and free of artificial additives. The canned format makes it convenient to enjoy anywhere, it also protects the wine from light and oxidation, and is estimated to reduce emissions from shipping by up to 80%.

Cheese Room Sessions: Pleasant Ridge Reserve Selection

When: Wednesday, April 19, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm. Cheese Room Sessions is a virtual event series of conversations hosted by Deli cheesemongers with special guest cheese makers and professionals who will talk about their delicious creations and ramble about life in the dairy business. In this month's session, join Deli mongers Connor and Trevor as they talk with Andy Hatch, owner and head cheesemaker at Uplands Cheese, a grassland dairy located in the driftless region of southwestern Wisconsin and maker of the signature Pleasant Ridge Reserve cheese. In this virtual tasting event, you will learn a bit more about the dairy and cheesemaking and also HELP US MAKE OUR SELECTION of Pleasant Ridge Reserve from last year's wheels! Andy, Trevor (also an Uplands cheese alum!) and Connor will guide you through 6 different batches of cheese and you'll provide us with some valuable feedback that will help us choose which batch we want to buy and sell over for the next year. We have a very special relationship with this cheesemaker, and this annual spring event with Andy to select the wheels that will represent Zingerman's Pleasant Ridge profile is something we look forward to each year. We started years ago and made a big leap in our cheese buying to acquire one whole day's worth of Uplands production–about 50 wheels. We are currently able to buy almost 250 wheels, or roughly four day's worth of Upland efforts. This cheese has won more awards than any other cheese in American history! It is made in the tradition of Alpine cheeses like Gruyere, and like other European Alpage cheeses, Uplands only makes Pleasant Ridge from May through October, when their cows are eating fresh pasture. We hope you will join us and take part in this our annual tradition. Your $15 Event Ticket Includes: Zoom meeting link; An evening of conversation and learning with Andy, Trevor and Connor.
