Meals From the Mitten: Celebrating the Seasons in Michigan, shares 80+ seasonal recipes from her native Michigan along with beautiful photography from some of the state’s most scenic landscapes including Sleeping Bear Dunes and Old Mission Peninsula wine county.
Among Ferwerda’s signature recipes in the 208-page book: Michigan Cherry Salad, Individual Detroit-Style Pizzas, Gold Coast Grilled Cheese, Boating & Boarding Burgers, Bleu Cheese Rimmed Bloody Mary-Tini and the GMA “Chocolate Taste Off” winner Pretzel Crusted Chocolate Cake.
“I have always wanted to write a cookbook that celebrates all of the fresh and local ingredients that we grow in my home state of Michigan, aka The Mitten,” said Ferwerda. “Michigan is second in the nation to only California in agricultural diversity, producing more than 300 commodities. Meals From the Mitten highlights each season’s bounty with recipes designed for the home chef.”
