Fueling Our Adventures in Wakefield

2022 North & North Again, Michigan, Road Trip, States

As we prepared to make the short drive this morning to our weeklong stay in Wisconsin’s Northwoods, we determined that we a good choice for a grocery stop might be the Sunday Lake Supermarket in the town of Wakefield, Michigan just a couple miles down the road. It was an excellent choice with everything we needed and friendliness in abundance. Then remembering some excellent pasties we’d enjoyed here in 2019 we headed to Randall Bakery just around the corner and down the street. Such a delightful experience in this local establishment. We left with Traditional Pasties and coffee to fuel us for today’s adventures. Yum! No visit to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is complete without pasties! Life is good.

    What was inside the pasties? Was it a breakfast type item or more lunch-dinner choice? Whatever it was, it looks delish.

    The link to Randall Bakery lists the ingredients in the various pasties they sell. Although they offer a Breakfast version, we always choose the Traditional or Cornish, originally developed centuries ago as a midday meal for the hard rock miners in Cornwall, England with meat and vegetables baked in pastry, sort of the original Hot Pocket. When Cornish miners emigrated to the copper mines in Michigan their cuisine including the Pastie came with them and has remained as very much a part of the Upper Peninsula culture.
