Just because you are a kid doesn't mean that you have to eat plain, ol' soft white bread (but we like that too!) Come to this class that is JUST FOR KIDS and we'll explore some of the many breads that are made by Zingerman's Bakehouse. Real artisan bakers craft sourdough, rye, farm, paesano, and other breads using traditional methods and flavorful ingredients and we'll taste them all and more! And by more, we mean bread with chunks of dark chocolate! Did we just say bread with chocolate? Oh yeah, we did!

Kids of any age will enjoy this class and tasting. The cost is $15 per kid. There is no cost for parents to fully participate or lurk in the background. All participants will also receive a 20% off coupon to use that evening for dinner or shopping at the Deli.

Whole hog bar-b-que is a craft, and the mindfulness for perfecting the method is not gained overnight. That’s why we’re so excited to welcome Pat Martin of Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint in West Tennessee to the Roadhouse.

With over 25 years of hands-on experience and focus, Pat creates falling-off-the-bone tender, moist, and smoky meat. His technique involves smoking hogs for a full 24 hours!

Pat and his apprenticed crew of pitmasters come into Martin’s at 5am, seven days a week, to start their pigs a full day ahead of service. Everything they make, including their sauces, is cooked from scratch—and passion. Now that’s dedication to full flavor!

James R. Veteto and Ted Maclin, co-authors of The Slaw and the Slow Cooked: Culture and Barbecue in the Mid-south, say this about the Tennessee tradition: “The act of smoking barbecue has a certain Zen-like quality: minimalist, with an abiding awareness of temperature, smoke concentration, and the particulars of the meat. It is a meditation on time, smoke, and flesh that requires non-action as much as decisiveness.”

Pat Martin opened the first Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint in October of 2006 in Nolensville, Tennessee, just south of Nashville. Today, there are four locations in the area, and they’ve been featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and The Today Show and in publications such as Bon Appetit, Esquire, Conde Nast Traveler, and Men’s Journal.

We welcome Pat to Zingerman’s Roadhouse on Tuesday, August 8th, to enlighten us on how the tradition of slow-process bar-b-que can transform your palate. Don’t miss out on experiencing a new regional barbecue technique and the discovery of transcending what we know about flavor!
