PHOTO: JOE GOUGH/FOTOLIAThe phrase "Michigan food" might not evoke any sort of distinctive cuisine in your mind, but for my money that state's Upper Peninsula is probably the pasty capital of the world. And again for my money, the best pasty cook in the whole U.P. is Madeleine. This very talented lady, who sells her treats in shops in Marquette and Ishpeming, recently shared the "secret" filling for a meat pasty recipe with me. I'd like to pass my good fortune along to MOTHER EARTH NEWS' readers.
