Just in time for graduation weekend at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor (go blue!), my mom and I arrived to share cacao at Zingerman's, truly one of the most amazing and unique food stores in the world. I may be biased since I grew up in Michigan, have gone there since a little girl and went to UM, but Zingerman's truly is special.
When you walk into Zingerman's you see fresh bread on your right and amazing cheese on your left and a sign board in front of you with endless sandwiches. It is a colorful visual delight and the good news -- these items taste outstanding too -- at the end of the day, Zingerman's is not a large place and brings in only a few select items. Each item has to pass through their rigorous taste tests. (sweetriot is honored to be there - they were one of our very 1st customers!)
We spent the entire UM graduation (go blue!) weekend sampling cacao. There were entire families in town for graduation and some locals too. You can see some great shots here of me and my mom and the great team at Zingerman's who joined in the riot. Huge thank you to my mom for rioting, to Duff our Zingerman's host and their great team, and to Kathleen Dolan of UMBS, Jason & Shelby, and April, Kip, and Lei from AIESEC Michigan for visiting us. Have you been to Zingerman's?...would love to hear your stories!
