Holiday Gift Ideas - Zingerman's of Ann Arbor!


By Shannon Keirnan

Shopping for the foodie in your life can be difficult, especially around the holiday season...

Don't worry! It's not as hard as you think. For starters, check out Zingerman's, which offers tons of options for even the most discerning foodie!

Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Zingerman's Deli came into being in 1902, and has been winning awards and loyal customers since. Once the deli was established, Zingerman's expanded, and now offers the restaurant Zingerman's Roadhouse, Zingerman's Bakehouse, Zingerman's Creamery, and even roasts their Zingerman's own coffee (and were featured in Travel and Leisure as one of the country's top roasters).

Zingerman's owners Ari and Paul were given the 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award by Bon Appetit, and the deli was voted one of the country's top ten places to purchase a "genuine Jewish nosh" by USA Today. Alton Brown rated the Roadhouse's macaroni and cheese the "America's Best Comfort Food."

But you don't have to live in Michigan to enjoy the great, high-quality food offered by Zingerman's. You can check out their easy-oder website here, and select the perfect gifts for friends and family!

For the chocolate lover, what about Chocolate-dipped figs? Or, perhaps some Hazelnut and Chocolate from Turin, Giandujotti? Hard to pronounce but easy to eat!

For the business-minded individual looking to establish themselves as leaders in the service industry, try the Zingerman's "Guide to Great Service," a guide to "treating customers like royalty."

From creamed raw honey from Bliss, Michigan, to gelato right from the Zingerman's Creamery (yes, they'll ship it!), the options are excellent.

You can even mail creamy, fresh goat cheese or Parmigiano-Reggiano (aged a minimum of two years) right from the Creamery to the truly discerning cheese lover.

Zingerman's even offers a gluten-free menu option, with great products like Celtic Sea Salt Caramels - perfect for stuffing stockers!

What will you be buying the foodie in your life this holiday?
