Bring your appetite when you visit the Sault area because you’ll want to sample some of the local specialties. Try a pasty (pronounced past-ee) and get both a culinary and history lesson. Pasties were introduced to the Upper Peninsula by Cornish miners in the 19th century. Whether doused in gravy, ketchup or eaten plain, these pastry-covered meat pies are sure to please. For those with a hankering for fish, Lake Superior Whitefish is the specialty in many area restaurants. Caught fresh and prepared in a variety of ways, Whitefish is a mild fish with fantastic flavor. Sit down, relax, and enjoy!
