What is a Pasty? from Josh Leo

Filed under: Michigan — Laura Moncur @ 3:59 am

Josh Leo’s travel videoblog has a great introduction to a purely Michigan food: pasty. I first heard of pasties in a fiction book set “way north.” It never identified itself as Michigan and I really thought it was set in Canda. Pasties are a meaty pastry dish that was brought from Europe to the United States. It’s a portable kind of food that the miners could bring with them when they had to work at the mines. Josh Leo’s video about them just makes me want to book a flight to Michigan.

Every video episode of Josh Leo’s Wandering West Michigan has made me want to visit the state. If you ever get a chance to head up to north Michigan, eat a pasty for me!
