The All About Food Conference was held on February 14 in Clinton Township and featured several local restaurants and food businesses.  It has been over a month since that event with almost 250 people in attendance but the word is – they all want to learn more about living healthy and how to find local food.  Local food is here – we just need to take time to find it!

Starting off the day we featured the former Che Cosa Coffee now known as the Box Theater Cafe at 42 Pine Street in Downtown Mt. Clemens.  We loved their coffee and the team was great to work with and delivered the coffee to us – They were awesome!

Henry Ford Health Systems of Macomb sponsored our lunch and their food service program provided soups and salads that were wonderful and healthy.

The Mitt Restaurant in downtown Mt. Clemens served a Michigan Salad and a Spinach Salad using local ingredients.

For dessert we were treated to cupcakes from The Happy Cake Lady.

Safies Products

We also featured sides from  Safies, another local food business that has been making great pickled beets and asparagus for over 75 years in Macomb County, Michigan.

Our milk was provided by Crooked Creek Dairy.   White and Chocolate versions were excellent.  This farm is bottling their own milk and other products and selling from the farm!

We had water donated by Westview Orchards and door prizes donated by MI By the Bottle Tasting Room, and   Hul-Bee Honey.

Sourcing local foods is an awesome adventure.  You learn about the people and businesses that build a community and make it great!
