A trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan, isn’t complete without a visit to Zingerman’s Delicatessen (www.zingermansdeli.com), which first opened in 1982 and is much more than a typical deli. Zingerman’s offers specialty dry goods like rare olive oils and aged vinegars, as well as a large selection of bread, cheese and meats. It’s a treat to browse through the store and sample and purchase some of the items offered. Zingerman’s Deli was recently named one of the coolest grocery stores in the United States by Chef Andrew Zimmern and Delish.com.
Among the items offered at Zingerman’s are products from The Brinery, a Michigan based business that uses fermentation to produce some amazing items. Several varieties of sauerkraut are offered and all are very tasty. The Brinery is located at 2531 Jackson Avenue, and workshops are offered to learn basic fermentation techniques. For more information on The Brinery, check out the website at www.thebrinery.com.
