Zingerman's Guide to Good Eating by Ari Weinzwig

Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, Michigan is a high-end galleria of food indulgences. They specialize in only the very best products and ingredients. This book is organized well and includes tantalizing recipes at the end of each chapter.

It might appear pretentious to proclaim the merits of purchasing only the very best of every type of food product, but Weinzwig insists that he is not looking for food to be fancy - he just wants it to taste good! That is his thesis for this book and the philosophy behind Zingerman's legacy.

Educational and mouth-watering, this book would be a wonderful addition to any aspiring cook wishing to choose better ingredients for themselves and their family.

  1. I grew up a mere 45 minutes from Zingerman's! I especially love their bread . . . and pickles and lox and ....

  2. I live a mere 15 minutes from Zingerman's :o) I love their new restaurant: Zingerman's Roadhouse. It's American comfort food using the best quality ingredients they can find. Soooooo good! Alton Brown declared their mac & cheese America's best comfort food. I would agree though their fried chicken is equally as comforting as their mac and cheese.

    About this book, I remember seeing my friend carrying this book around for several weeks last year!

    We went on several field trips to Zingerman's Roadhouse for our business class. It's one of my favorite restaurants in this area. :)
