What’s Cooking at Huntington Place

By M+E Staff

Detroit’s convention center, Huntington Place, not only has a new name—it was formerly called TCF Center—but it also has some new items on the catering menu. Executive chef Stephan Blaser expanded the plant-based selections with a focus on sustainability, took a “whole-animal” approach, expanded the use of made-in-Michigan ingredients and products, and offered more regional favorites. Blaser points to a few local partners: Avalon International Breads, Lagrasso Produce, Fairway Packing (for custom-made burgers and other meat and poultry), Dearborn Sausage, Great Lakes Coffee, Great Lakes Chips, and Better Made Chips. Expect beverages like Faygo soft drinks and Vernors ginger ale, plus selections from Michigan wineries and breweries.

A “Michigan Flavors” reception menu features smoked Michigan country ham, a buttermilk waffle crisp topped with confit Mallard duck, a tasting of Michigan mushrooms, and local ruby red trout.
