Deliciously Michigan

Join us on a virtual journey through the unique foods of Michigan

February 24 – May 2, 2021

Pasties, fudge, and square pizza are just a few of the delicacies known to Michiganders. Food traditions from many cultures and over many years have blended together to form our unique combination of favorite eats!

Michigan has a rich heritage with diverse foods, beverages and dishes that have become so much a part of the culture that we often are not even aware of their origins. Immigrant populations and Native Americans have contributed many food traditions that seem almost ubiquitous, while we continue to diversify local cuisine as newcomers arrive in the “mitten.”

Agriculture has also shaped the food landscape of Michigan with staples like potatoes, cherries, rhubarb and so much more! Sold in stores, at roadside stands and iconic landmarks like Detroit’s Eastern Market, the produce and food products made in Michigan are also significant drivers of the state’s economy.

These virtual presentations are free and open to the general public; however, preregistration is required. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the Zoom presentation. Register Today
