Entertainer Taylor Hicks tastes his way across Michigan, in search of the state’s most iconic foods. First, he harvests tart cherries to eat them with brie and then learns about the Native American traditions in preparing wild rice. Next, he plants celery before preparing it in a fresh salad and partakes in a lakeside fish boil to taste the local whitefish. Finally, Taylor gets a lesson in Polish culture as he discovers what goes into the dessert called paczki. It’s a heaping helping of imported and local cuisine from the Great Lakes region as we taste Michigan’s most celebrated foods.
