About this Project

The genesis for this document is the discovery of a new part of the country, its culinary offerings and the tools I have to play with as I learn. I'm currently in the middle of Michigan. Aside from a brief visit last fall, I have never been here. I was born in Arizona and left after college, spending the majority of my life in California. You don't realize the habits of what you eat, cook, crave and take for granted until you leave where you live.
A Year in Provence, by Peter Mayle. The discovery of food and life in that book reminds me of what I am experiencing here. What really is the difference? I am here by choice, but not planned and for some reason that combination has ignited my curiosity. So, An Undetermined Amount of Time in Michigan is the appropriate title. The exploration of what food customs exist, where the best local ingredients are sold and where the delicacies lie. I have never had a grill until now. lol. I'm obsessed. So the grill. I have an InstaPot here and I've never used one of those before, although I have used pressure cookers and slow cookers separately. I have a VitaMix here, never used one of those either! And a stove. Happily, a gas one with lots of good heat.
I used to love to cook. I needed a break and now the middle of Michigan has me inspired.
