They will mail you a Rueben sandwich. A really great one to boot! Need we say more to recommend Zingerman’s? Years ago, perusing our first Zingerman’s catalog, we knew these were people we wanted to hang out and share a beer with. People who would travel the globe to offer us salt-packed anchovies, Finnish black licorice, handmade marshmallows and true aged balsamic vinegar via mail are our kind of people; and this is possibly the best edited and most wittily described selection of foods by mail available anywhere.
Zingerman’s began life as a deli in Ann Arbor Michigan in 1982. Its exceptional food and service brought the deli great success, and the founders, Ari Weinzweig and Paul Saginaw, saw an opportunity to expand their business by channeling the deli’s strengths into a network of related businesses. Zingerman’s Community of Businesses now includes a bakehouse, a restaurant, a coffee roastery, a creamery, catering company, and a corporate training and consulting company that teaches the service and management techniques that made Zingerman’s successful.
Since we live more than a day’s drive from Ann Arbor, we thank our lucky stars for Zingerman’s mail order. The products are lovingly selected by people who really know what’s good, and their descriptions are so evocative that we can’t even read the catalog if we're between meals. Every product is special, from the handmade Zingerman’s Creamery fresh cream cheese, to the Italian fig wine vinegar, to the house-cured corned beef. Zingerman’s service is first-rate, and everything is backed by their Guarantee of Absolute Satisfaction. Zingerman’s is also a top choice for gift baskets, which are full of selections made according to the occasion. To top it all off, now available from Zingerman’s Bakehouse for a limited time in honor of the inauguration: Barak-y Road Gelato! Get outa here!
