An evening of roasting, braising and empowerment.

Zingerman’s Roadhouse invites you to an epic evening on March 13th, as we welcome Chef Molly Stevens for our 3rd Annual Jelly Bean Jump Up Fundraiser! Join us as we celebrate a talented woman in the culinary world while supporting SafeHouse, a safe haven in Ann Arbor for all survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

During this event, award-winning cookbook author and teacher Molly Stevens will share her expertise about two of the Roadhouse’s favorite cooking techniques, roasting and braising. Molly has been described in the New York Times Book Review as “a beautifully clear writer who likes to teach”. Classically trained in professional kitchens in France, Molly has directed programs and taught at the French Culinary Institute, New England Culinary Institute, and L’Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne in Burgundy, France and Venice, Italy. This year, Chef Bob Bennett has coordinated with Molly to prepare mouthwatering dishes from her two James Beard Award-winning cookbooks, All About Braising: The Art of Uncomplicated Cooking and All About Roasting: A New Approach to a Classic Art. Both books will be available for purchase at this unforgettable dinner.

We will also be raising money for an amazing cause with the 3rd Annual Jelly Bean Jump Up. Ari Weinzweig started this fundraiser in honor of his beloved dog, Jelly Bean, who passed away in 2015. Ari wanted to turn sadness over his loss into something positive, and created the Jelly Bean Jump Up fundraiser to contribute to SafeHouse. This year, we will be offering a silent auction at this dinner, and options for donations in addition to the ticket price. By “Jumping Up” to donate any of the following amounts, you would be helping the families at SafeHouse in valuable ways.
