edibleWOW Magazine and Taste The Local Difference
Present Cooking Demo Series at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market
Ann Arbor Chefs Focus on Products Fresh from the Farmers that Come to the Market
Ann Arbor, MI – The third Wednesday of each month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., starting in May and running through October, is sure to be a crowd pleaser at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market (315 Detroit St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104). In partnership, edible Wow magazine and Taste the Local Difference have created a cooking demo series that focuses on the products that local farmers bring to the market.
A fierce battle is being waged today over the pros and cons of pasteurized milk. But in the early decades of the 20th century, improvements that could bring safer cows’ milk to market couldn’t come fast enough. One of the farms leading the way was located in Avon Township, now known as Rochester Hills. It was owned and managed by Sarah Van Hoosen Jones, a pioneer dairy farmer in Michigan.
In1890, Detroit was a place where a man could go to seek his fortune. Its boundaries were expanding, its population swelling. That’s the year wealthy factory owner Hazen S. Pingree was elected mayor.
An early October sun is setting over the storefronts of Joseph Campau Avenue in Hamtramck. It’s Friday night, and small groups of people filter casually into Peter Dalinowski’s permanent pop-up venue, (revolver). A few guests carry their own bottles of wine as they are seated family-style around candlelit wood block tables. It’s the first seating of the season after a brief summer hiatus, and the anticipation is palpable.
SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN – Taste the Local Difference®, Michigan’s local-food marketing agency, and edibleWOW, Southeastern Michigan’s seasonal local food magazine, have announced a new partnership to support the local food economy of Southeast Michigan.
Late on a Sunday afternoon in Detroit’s West Village, lazy brunch-goers cozy up to mugs of organic coffee and dirty chai. It’s frigid outside, but inside Detroit Vegan Soul patrons are toasty as they linger over stacks of sweet potato pancakes and plates of “catfish tofu” with black-eyed peas and collard greens.
On a corner of Oakland University’s property in sprawling Rochester Hills, it still feels like country. This is where Matilda Dodge Wilson once raised poultry and where, in 1959, the university’s first classes met. It’s quiet here, and the bustle of the city and university feel far away.
