We’re throwing a huge street fair party—and you’re invited!

Come celebrate Zingerman's 35th Anniversary at the Ann Arbor Farmers' Market Saturday, August 12th.

The evening will feature some of the world’s most famous food makers, lots of great food and awesome music –all for free! Everyone is welcome.

We’re excited to bring together the people who make great food and the people who love to eat it. Meet the makers of your favorite cheeses, salamis, chocolates, and tons more. You’ll have the chance to hear the stories direct from the people who make the foods, plus sample tons of tasty treats.

But the real reason for our celebration is to appreciate you! Without the support of the Ann Arbor community, we wouldn’t be here. Thank you for helping to make the last 35 years so remarkable.

Cookbook author Joan Nathan sows seeds of tradition, right here at Zingerman’s Roadhouse!

Joan is a James Beard Award-winning cookbook author (and a University of Michigan grad), and with her 11 books has gathered timeless and delicious experiences from the far corners of the world. She will share the bounty of her latest collection with us as we recreate several recipes from her latest book, King Solomon's Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World. Inside, readers will find more than 170 recipes, from Israel to Italy to India and beyond.

Join us for our Harvest Special Dinner #213 on Monday, August 28th, as we reap the lifetime of stories and recipes the tour de force of Jewish cooking, Joan Nathan, has accumulated for us.

Just as the biblical King Solomon cross-pollinated culinary cultures by sending out emissaries across ancient land and seas, “Nathan serves as a modern emissary, gathering recipes and stories from all around the globe.” —Tim Carman, The Washington Post

We will not only taste recipes that have planted the seeds for Jewish cuisine, but the “queen of American Jewish cooking” (Houston Chronicle), will weave rich stories from across the ages as we explore the treasure that is King Solomon's Table. Don’t miss out on this incredible dinner, and a one-of-a-kind opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Joan’s nationally acclaimed new book!

September is National Bourbon Heritage Month, and we take our bourbon-honoring duties very seriously here at Cornman Farms! Join us on the evening of September 21st as we gather in the barn to pay homage to bourbon, America's most acclaimed indigenous spirit. We'll discuss the history of bourbon, what makes it unique in the whiskey world, and taste three styles side-by-side. Next, the guests will learn how to make, and then will enjoy, three distinct bourbon cocktails while your host, Beth, shares stories about the drinks and the liquors. We'll explore how to use bourbon in two classic cocktails: the Scofflaw, and the Remember the Maine; and we'll teach you how to make a delightful concoction we developed just for this evening: the Cornman Farms Ginger Peach Smash. We'll serve some gourmet treats during the class, and at the end we'll all retire to the lower level of the barn for coffee and dessert and an opportunity to further discuss bourbon one-on-one with Beth. Guests will leave the class with recipes for all drinks made and syrups used, as well as the know-how and confidence to recreate these tipples at home!
