One of the most commonly-asked questions is, “What foods are common in Michigan?” The question is generally asked about any state, by kids writing reports or developing science projects, individuals or families looking for recipes to cook, or people playing trivia games. There are bits and pieces of the answer out there, broken up into multiple areas on even more numerous web sites. This is our effort to put all of those pieces of the puzzle together into one cohesive whole.

Welcome, and we hope you enjoy exploring Michigan’s foods and some of the recipes made from the state’s delicious bounties.
