Ultimate Up North Kitchen Tour Countdown: 4 Days Left!

More excitement over the Ultimate Up North Kitchen Tour this week … Yesterday TV 7 & 4 filmed Steve Cobb (Wolf/Subzero Northern Michigan rep) and me in kitchen # 14 on the tour. The kitchen is one of my faves–it’s way out at the end of Old Mission Peninsula with views of a vineyard and East Bay. It’s a warm sophisticated cottage look with wonderful vintage-looking cabinets, a gleaming white porcelain farmhouse sink and granite that looks like oatmeal raisin cookies (yes, it makes you want to bake up a batch of those cookies!). And oh those top-of-the-line appliances … By the time Steve gets finished explaining everything they do you could believe they’d take you to the moon.

People are contacting us asking if they can purchase tickets at the kitchens. Absolutely, they are $12 at the door. But if you are reading this, you may as well buy them at MyNorth.com/store. They are only $10 on our web site and you’ll get a map and directions so you can plan your day.

The weather is looking promising Saturday. Cool and cloudy but with no snow or rain in the forecast. A perfect day for kitchen hopping the Northwest coast!
