Sultry, smoky flavored bacon beckons. Zingerman’s Bacon Camp is a gathering of bacon lovers, bacon makers, cooking school teachers, culinary historians, and writers, all of whom descend on Ann Arbor to taste and discuss the much-loved meat. Here’s a rundown of events for the week:

 

Potlikker Film Festival

A film fest named after Joe York’s series of documentaries about some of Zingerman’s favorite Southern food makers. Enjoy a film walkthrough of how the food is made, and brought to your plate — then the interactive experience begins — where you get to eat the food!
