Bread of the Month

Sicilian Sesame Semolina Round

Meet the bread you didn’t even know you needed in your life. It’s claim to flavor fame is something to see, and taste of course. The entire loaf is rolled in unhulled sesame seeds before baking. The natural oil in all those seeds that cover the dough gets slowly roasted in the oven, contributing an intense flavor and aroma, not to mention a lovely little crunch. And that’s just the crust! Inside there’s a firm, rich and almost cake-like crumb made with golden semolina flour yielding a beautiful yellow interior. The same flour often used to make pasta. Our Sicilian Sesame Semolina bread begs to be toasted, griddled or broiled to turn the flavor dial up even higher. It loves to be paired with garlic butter, pesto, olive tapenade or a sprinkle of good parmesan. It’s one of the featured breads on the toast menu at our neighbor Zingerman’s Coffee Company, served with cream cheese and lutenitsa, a Bulgarian tomato and eggplant spread. Trust us fellow bread lover, you want to give Sicilian Sesame Semolina a whirl. Was $6.79 a loaf, now $4.75 this month.
Cake of the Month


When Zingerman's Roadhouse opened in 2003 we were inspired to introduce many old time American favorites. Hummingbird cake is one of them. A traditional southern cake with toasted coconut, fresh bananas, toasted pecans, and pineapple covered in cream cheese frosting. All those flavors add up to one special dessert. Taste why it's been one of our most popular cakes for more than a decade. All hummingbird cakes and slices are 20% off this month.
Spring Sweets

We start by freshly milling organic soft white wheat berries from Ferris Organic Farms in Eaton Rapids, Michigan on our stone mill.

Lemon Sponge Cake
A delightful way to end your Passover feast. Light and lemony sponge cake with lemon curd between the layers and a caramelized meringue exterior. Wheat free too! (made with potato starch).

Pavlova is great for Passover! Pavlova is the iconic dessert of Australia and New Zealand, named after the Russian Ballerina Anna Pavlova, who performed there in the 1920s. It is a light, luscious, fruity, sweet, cloud-like dessert. It begins with piping a round of vanilla meringue and baking it until the exterior is crispy, but the interior remains soft and smooth. It’s then covered with a thick wavy layer of unsweetened whipped cream (plenty of sugar in the meringue for the entire dessert) and generously decorated with colorful seasonal fruit. This month: mango, kiwi and raspberry. Enjoy them while you can!
