Traverse City Hits People
July 6, 2015
Traverse City just got some “major pub,” thanks to Mario Batali and People Magazine. This week’s People includes a story on “America’s Foodiest Cities.” And alongside Portland, Austin, and Orlando? Traverse City.
Batali relays his love for the area, noting, “The food scene has grown over the years, and local chefs make delicious food that celebrates the region.” He goes on to urge readers from around the world to come visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes, The Cove Restaurant in Leland, the National Cherry Festival, and Mawby Vineyards, whose tasting room Batali calls, “really like an Italian party movie scene.”
He also shared his recipe for cherry BBQ sauce.
