Baconfest offers treats from Rock City Pies and Gord’s Canadian Bacon

Bacon, that most fabulous of foods. Would breakfast really be breakfast without bacon? And lunch—who doesn’t love a BLT, or a couple strips atop a burger or chicken sandwich? Dinner—got you covered. Anything you want to cook comes out delicious wrapped in bacon. Case in point—scallops, shrimp, steak. Which brings us to BACONFEST, June 2...

Michigan Wine– a month of celebration

Michigan Wine– a month of celebration

April was Michigan Wine Month, which culminated with the annual Michigan Wine Showcase at the Rattlesnake Club in Detroit. Now I could wax poetically about lemon grass noses and tastes of melon, leather, tobacco and (my favorite descriptor) barnyard. But I won’t. What I will do is point you in the direction of some...

I need a hero

The Sopranos was one of my all time favorite shows. Great acting, dialogue….and eating! I mean, when they weren’t whacking people, Tony and the guys were quite the foodies. Yes, Paulie was kinda squeamish over the squid ink pasta—he’s strictly a red gravy (wise) guy. But Carmela with her famous baked ziti, Tony, the rest of...

Pete’s in Ferndale serves upscale deli and more

We stopped by Pete’s Place Broadway Cafe for lunch this weekend. Off the beaten path, down Woodward Heights in Ferndale, this nondescript diner from the outside suddenly becomes a slightly upscale eatery on the inside. Owner Pete Mel transformed a long-closed Coney Island into a place of his own, melding the flavors of a couple former...

If you haven’t been to Belle Isle lately, you’re missing out

The weather is warming up, and for me, that means trips to Belle Isle.   The island is 983 acres of fun just east of downtown Detroit, whether you’re riding your bike or running the 5.5 miles around the perimeter roads, playing some tennis on the nicely surfaced courts, or chasing squirrels and geese with...

Celebrate Michigan wines at Vinotecca

I stopped at Royal Oak’s Vinotecca last week, to catch up on some great wines. While there, I also got to try some new menu items. Let’s start with the wine. I’m not much of a chardonnay drinker. I usually avoid it. I tried the Bonafide winery Chardonnay and was quite pleased. A couple other standouts...

Dinner and a show

We went to dinner at Zazios in Birmingham the other night for Chef’s Table. Guests sit in a pseudo stadium style area and get to chat with the chef while watching him cook. It’s like “dinner and a show”, and adds a really fun element to the dining experience. Zazios has a bright and cheerful...

My new favorite cookie

I was at Royal Oak’s farmers market over the weekend. It’s a little less crowded this time of year. I ran into Alex at Cheeky Monkeys Foods and decided to grab a few cookies and scones. Cheeky Monkeys promises all organic, baked from scratch items, using local ingredients whenever possible– flour, butter, brown sugar, dark chocolate...
