The tour, which is coming to Detroit June 26-28, will focus on the culinary wonders that surround the city and America's Auto Industry. Some highlights of the 2-day tour include:

- Discussion of dugout eats by Curtis Granderson (my FAVORITE Tiger!);
- "Houses of Worship" tour led by Detroit Free Press columnist/co-editor of The Detroit Almanac Bill McGraw (samples of pierogies, burrma and baklava will be noshed along the way);
- Tour of the historic Germack Pistachio Company;
- A presentation by Ari Weinzweig -- founder of Ann Arbor's famous Zingerman's Deli;
- A shopping trip to Eastern Market led by Lois Johnson and Margaret Thomas, authors of Detroit's Eastern Market: A Farmers Market Shopping and Cooking Guide;
- A breakfast at Avalon Bakery;
- Picnic on Belle Isle;
- Baking lessons where tourgoers can learn the art of making Mexican cakes, Middle Eastern pastries or Southern sweet potato pies;
- Festivities will conclude at Cadieux Café, a featherbowling bar.

I can't wait to see what wonderful stories are written about what everyone is able to experience -- all in the yummy, cultural city of Detroit.
Thanks for choosing Detroit, American Table. Annnd, in 40=/- years when I retire, feel free to come back to Detroit so I can take the tour myself.
