MichiganCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

In Michigan, you'll find anything from artfully prepared five-star cuisine to mouth-watering, slow-cooked barbeque at an authentic roadhouse. Or Michigan cuisine might mean exquisite sorbet served dockside or rich and creamy Mackinac Island fudge.
