Pete’s Chocolate Co.

Pete’s Chocolate Co.

We blame Columbus for our debilitating chocolate addiction. Chris C. first brought cacao beans back to Spain after his fourth trip to the New World in 1502. From there, Spanish friars popularized a hot chocolate drink, sweetened with sugar or honey, with the Spanish court. And the good stuff spread like wildfire. Chocolate truffles – […]

The Streetlight Series

Detroit is one of the best cities in the world to hear live music. You already know this. What you may not realize is that Detroit, recently, has also become a filmmaking hub. We’re not just talking about Hollywood-comes-to-the-Motor-City films. This city is a hotbed for talented local artists producing interesting and high quality movies. […]

Pazcki Roundup 2015

Pazcki Roundup 2015

We have to confess, we’re already two Pazcki deep this morning. We may regret it later, but those pillowy custard confections are worth every gut-busting calorie. And Pazcki Day only comes once a year. Although Pazcki are traditionally fried (sometimes in lard), we’re seeing a trend toward baked versions this year. Some bakeries are serving […]

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th. It is the first of three such dates this year, with the others falling in March and November. Friday has been considered an unlucky day to travel since the 14th Century (so much for our weekend roadtrip). But the concept of Friday the 13th being particularly unlucky is a relatively […]

Detroit Delhi

Detroit Delhi

The whole concept of Indian cuisine is a little daunting to us: the intricate balance of spices and vibrant colors; the curries, chutneys, dals. There are so many different variations across India’s diverse cultural regions. While much of the population eats vegetarian, regions like Kashmir are notably meat-centric. It’s a cuisine that is still evolving […]

8 Unexpectedly Great Places to Warm Up With a Bowl of Soup

8 Unexpectedly Great Places to Warm Up With a Bowl of Soup

All winter long, we basically consider soup one of the major food groups. It’s not a dieting-by-eating-only-cabbage-soup-and-broth situation. We turn to soup in more of an it’s-freezing-out-and-I-need-something-hot-to-warm-by-bones kind of way. It’s hearty and delicious, especially in the winter. There are tons of cool places in Detroit that serve soup, many of them you probably know already. We […]

El Parian

El Parian

Guadalajara is the land-locked capital city of Jalisco, which rests on Mexico’s western coast. It’s a charming, historic town; the home of mariachi. If you venture outside of the main tourist hub you might find yourself in Tlaquepaque, a suburb southeast of Guadalajara. It’s an artist community, with a six-block pedestrian-only district lined with art […]
