A good friend of mine is from Ann Arbor, Michigan and for each special occasion, she loves to send me care packages from Zingerman’s®. An establishment well known to all who been to Ann Arbor, their shops have everything from baked goods to cheeses to coffee. They even do catering and international food tours!
When I first moved into my new home, my friend sent me a box of bread. Being in California, the freshness didn’t last so long but it all made for good toast. Recently, she sent me a box of their gelato:
These were quite rich for gelato – tasted more like somewhere in between real gelato and ice cream. From the website, they use locally sourced milk to make both the gelato and cheese. What a variety for homemade gelato! Lactose intolerate beware, however – it’s heavy on the milk.
Such a creative way to send something special to a friend. And good advertsisement too – makes me want to go to Ann Arbor!
