Sardine Book Dinner with Ari Weinzweig of Zingerman's and Chef Michael Barrera
On most given days, you’ll find Ari Weinzweig rustling up dishes from one of the fabulous classic Zingerman’s ventures or teaching a seminar on “ Creating a Vision of Greatness.” But what you may not know, is that when Ari has a minute to spare (we’re not sure when!?) he parlays the Zingerman’s experience through the written word, as a best-selling food writer. Hence, alongside Ari, we’ve curated an evening of Sardines based on his follow-along chapbook, Sardines! which is part of the first edition of handmade books produced in Ann Arbor by Zingerman’s Press. In an informal chat and Q&A, Ari will smash Sardine stereotypes, share his delight with the little fish, offer a commentary on canned versus tinned… and answer the never-ending question: Sardines! What can they do? After getting the inside scoop from Ari, we will sit down for an inventive sardine-based feast by Chef Michael Barrera that will show you what these omega-3-rich fish are all about. A limited number of Ari Weinzweig’s Sardine books were printed on sustainably-forested paper and lovingly handmade for this special night at frame using a simple pamphlet stitch. Ari will be signing copies at the end of the evening. Each guest will receive a copy of the book which is included in the ticket price. Additional copies will be available during your ticket purchase. Each book is hand assembled and we cannot guarantee additional copies will be available the night of the event. If you wish to order additional copies, we advise you add them to your order upon checkout.
