Traverse City’s own Grand Traverse Pie Company will be featured on the fall premiere of ABC’s “The Chew” Monday, thanks to celebrity chef and Leelanau County summer resident Mario Batali. Batali, who asked that Grand Traverse Pie Company’s Cherry Crumb Pie be served up to the studio audience this Monday, is expected to showcase the cherry pie and discuss the bounty of Grand Traverse region. The show airs on ABC weekdays at 1pm Eastern.
“All of us within the Grand Traverse Pie Company family are proud to be a part of Mario Batali’s enthusiasm for northern Michigan,” says Mike Busley, the company’s co-founder. “And to that end, we too are committed to celebrating Michigan.”
