Taste of Michigan

What happens when 20 professional food bloggers, from all over the country, convene in Grand Rapids to experience Michigan’s BEST food, drinks and sites? We will know TOMORROW when the Taste of Michigan kicks off its inaugural event right here in our COOL city.

Count me IN!

The Menu: Fulton Street Farmer’s Market; prop shopping; private lunch at Bistro Bella Vita; tour and tasting at Reserve Wine & Food; ArtPrize; dinner and chatting with the chefs extraordinaire at Six.One.Six; served with a pinch of dirt dishing on social media, search engine optimization, increasing unique page views, photography, FOOD (of course!) and miscellaneous tricks of the the trade; finished with a generous dash of Michigan culinary SWAG


JOIN US on Facebook or Twitter. Also, be part of the adventure, in real time, tomorrow on Twitter by searching the hashtag #tasteofMI.

Thank you to Rachel and Liz for concocting this perfect list of ingredients in the exact right portions for an EXTRAORDINARY epicurean event. Vous êtes gastronomica-chiqueas!

See y’all at the market in the morning…
