Um, I guess no one read the November-December 2009 issue D Home.
Culinary Adventure Society
Zingerman’s premier club.
The right gift for that friend or client who thinks of themselves as the Indiana Jones of the culinary world. No rolling boulders here, but four times a year we’ll send a big box of eight to ten food surprises based on our most up to date food research and travel. Perhaps they’ll taste an olio nuovo, a coveted bottle of great olive oil, just pressed. Maybe a cheese from one of America’s small dairies, so regional it rarely leaves its neighborhood. Maybe the latest invention from Zingerman’s Bakehouse, only available in Ann Arbor. All foods in the Culinary Adventure Society will be exclusively selected for its members. We’ll include a collection of writing on the foods’ history and culture plus recipes for their use.
Bonus: free, autographed copy of Zingerman’s Guide to Good Eating with their first shipment. It’s guaranteed to impress and put its recipient on the cutting edge of taste-bud territory.
Prices include shipping and handling. $10 extra per installment for shipments to Alaska or Hawaii.
Since we order the foods especially for club members, we cannot change the ship dates of the club.

Past Culinary Adventure Society treasures included:
The first taste of Robert Lambert’s Rangpur Lime Syrup.
A rare cache of frost tea from high in the Himalayas.
Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Bar — before the rest of the country got to taste the phenomenon.
Line-caught tuna from the Pacific Northwest.
Wild thimbleberry jam, with fruit picked on the spring shores of Lake Superior.
Tough one b/c there is so much to choose from and everyone has a different palette for what is interesting for them…would this person want ingredients/food items? foodie tools/equipment? classes? food crafts/activities?
I’m thinking a _____ of the month gift of some sort (wine, beer, cheese, organic fruits, etc) would be good. Even membership to a organic co-op or something (Check out The Movement Dallas)? Of-the-month gifts are great b/c it gives foodies a “project”. For example, if I have 2 papayas…what are all the things I can make with papaya? Foodies like projects!
OR if they are more into the tools/equipment, rather than ingredients, get them one of those mini dehydrator? i don’t really know about that one…never used one but looks really cool!
or if they want the experiences/activities, look into classes/tours/kits…Scardello’s cheese-making tour?
OR maybe you can just do a big food crawl around the city with good friends. have fun!
