Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to let you know about Ari Weinzweig's Book Party happening at Perrys this Thursday, September 30th, at 6pm.

Perrys Executive Chef Mark Furstenberg will be serving some amazing bacon appetizers in honor of the Zingerman's Guide to Better Bacon and I hope you can stop by! Please send this along to your friends, thanks! Details below...

The impressario of Zingerman's, Ari Weinzweig, is going to have a book party at Perry's, 1811 Columbia Rd NW WDC 20009, on Thursday evening. Politics & Prose http://www.politics-prose.com/ari-weinzweig-zingermans-guide-better-bacon will have copies of his bacon book and we hope to have copies of the not-quite-yet-published book about the Zingerman business style, the ruminations of a lapsed anarchist.

Thursday, September 30, 6 p.m.

ZINGERMAN'S GUIDE TO BETTER BACON (Zingerman's Press, $29.99)

James Beard award-winner Ari Weinzweig guides you on a personal tour of bacon's long and curious history. Rebecca Powers of Hour Detroit Magazine says, "Some books whet a thirst for knowledge. This one stirs a gnawing hunger for meat … Weinzweig's ode to bacon offers . . . folksy writing, food lore, trivia, and 42 recipes," so you can put your new-found bacon expertise to use right away! Ari will also talk about his forthcoming book, Zingerman's Guide to Good Leading, Part 1: A Lapsed Anarchist's Approach to Building a Great Business.

Here are some blurbs and cover art for bacon book is attached as is the cover of the new book:

"A real bible of all things smoked pig, an engrossing, affably rambling, borderline obsessive one-stop swine seminar."

—Chicago Tribune

“ The book is lovingly crafted in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where Ari's famous shops, Zingerman's Community of Businesses, are a local institution. The book [has] old-school style foil stamping on the front, beautiful paper, all done locally. It's chock-full of history, guides to bacon from Pancetta to Hungarian Double-Smoked, and recipes that demand good bacon.... Clearly an essential guide-book for any bacon-enthusiast. ”

—Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, TheKitchn,

Apartment Therapy

"Some books whet a thirst for knowledge. This one stirs a gnawing hunger for meat. Zingerman's Guide to Better Bacon makes the case for pigging out. Folksy writing, food lore, trivia, and 42 recipes, combine for 240 pages of engaging reading... Weinzweig's ode to bacon offers an explanation for the term 'bringing home the bacon,' and provides a bacon glossary that defines rasher, pancetta, and Canadian Peameal Bacon, among others."—Rebecca Powers, Hour Detroit Magazine

"The definitive scripture of streaky meat." —www.thetastingtable.com

"Weinzweig has put together a comprehensive history of all things pork belly-related. Curious about the history of eating cured pork? Check. Interested in pig drovers in North America? He's got you covered. Want to get up close and personal with artisanal bacon makers? You'll feel like old friends. Have you ever fantasized about going to a magical place called Camp Bacon? Well, you get the picture."
