Smells, more than anything else, can stir up strong and usually fond memories from my childhood, mostly associated with food. I cherish that. Growing up as a little kid, I would eat a bowl of warm milk for breakfast with pieces of white bread and sugar, turning into a sweet, comforting mush. I loved it. When I started working at the Bakehouse and took on the daily tasting of the breads, the aroma of Paesano reminded me of the initial stages of that warm bowl of milk and bread from my childhood.

It's at the top of my go-to list for a snack or a gift!

Here’s a tale of how three foods we now know and love came to be. Not just as a part of the fabric of the American south, but later as a part of the food landscape of the land of 1,000 flavors, Zingerman’s Community of Businesses. Let’s go back fourteen years to the opening of Zingerman's Roadhouse. Their vision was to create a full service restaurant serving “really great American food” to hungry Ann Arborites and visitors.
