Michigan's Delectable Pasty Featured in New Blog Series

Blog series shines the spotlight on one of Michigan’s most delightful gastronomical treasures: the pasty.
 
Dec. 3, 2012 - PRLog -- A semi-regular series on The Awesome Mitten blog entitled "Pretty Awesome Pasties" http://www.awesomemitten.com/food-drink/introducing_pretty_awesome_pasties/ shines the spotlight on one of Michigan’s most delightful gastronomical treasures: the pasty.

Held in high regard by folks in Michigan's Upper Peninsular, commonly known as the UP, a pasty is a baked pastry made by placing uncooked filling of potatoes, meat, onion and rutabagas on a flat pastry circle, which is then folded, sealed and baked.  Its origins stem from  the late 1800s when Finnish and British immigrants adopted the pasty for use in UP copper mines.

Highlighted are Michigan’s favorite pasty recipes and vendors, including reviews of Pretty Awesome Pasties sold throughout both Peninsulars of the fair State.

Authored by Julie Rogier of Rogier Communications, and fellow contributing writer Beth Baerman, a key feature of these blog posts are reviews of Michigan-made pasties using a proprietary rating system developed just for the Awesome Mitten blog.
