Zingerman’s Deli - Pleasant Ridge Reserve Cheese and Ari (Zingerman’s co-founder) and Andy (cheesemaker at Upland’s Cheese)
Andy was in town to break open a special 80 lb. wheel of the Pleasant Ridge that had been maturing for over two years. Normally, the wheels are just 10 lbs., but Andy was moved by the birth of his son to create two special large-sized commemorative wheels. He kept the first, and honored Zingerman’s by opening the second wheel here at the Deli. Although he received multiple bids on the special wheels, Andy says he wanted it “kept in the Midwest,” and Zingerman’s are all the luckier for it.

Zingerman’s Roadhouse - Pork BBQ
Roadhouse barbecue uses free-running, antibiotic-free, heirloom breed hogs (which have far more fat, and much more flavor than the commercial hogs most folks are using). The pork is smoked on a pit over oak logs for a good 14 or 15 hours. The tender meat is pulled from the bones, chopped coarsely and then dressed with a traditional Eastern Carolina vinegar sauce (two-year-old, barrel-aged organic cider vinegar that Zingerman’s get from Pierre Gingras up in Quebec, which Zingerman’s then seasons with a touch of Muscovado brown sugar, sea salt and Telicherry black pepper).
Smoky warm pork, dressed in that tangy cider vinegar sauce.
Zingerman’s Deli - Marou Artisan Chocolate Bars from Vietnam
Zingerman’s carry three of the Marou bars.
The first is the 75% cacao bar made from beans from Ben Tre province on Vietnam’s southeast coast. Remarkably cinnamon-y (and yet no cinnamon or other spice has been added) and also hints of cloves, or maybe nutmeg.
The second bar is equally excellent. It’s made from cacao that comes from farms in the Tien Gang region, just a bit to the north of Ben Tre. The Tien Gang bar is a touch lower in cacao content and just a bit sweeter as a result but both are definitely dark chocolates and both are definitely very good. This one is deep, dusky, sensual, long lingering with a lot more low notes and a finish that is a bit smoky.
The third, Lam Dong is made from cacao beans grown in the country’s Central Highlands. Lam Dong province is unusual in Vietnam because it doesn’t have a border with any other country. The region is made up of both mountains and plateaus and is the source of seven major river systems. The chocolate bar is, as are all the Marou bars, pretty majestically marvelous. 74% cacao so it’s quite dark, it’s very creamy, almost fudgy, on the tongue. The flavor is clearly cacao, but with hints of dark fruit. It has a touch of dark black cherry, so much so that it’s almost juicy and a sensual spicy finish with maybe a snippet of cinnamon.
