Camp Bacon hits the road with Zingerman’s Food Tours for a high-energy tasting jaunt through the markets, kitchens, and breweries of Detroit. Our food adventurers will go behind the scenes to meet the chefs and taste-makers at the heart of the Motor City’s vibrant food scene.

Detroit’s food scene is hot. The spirit of innovation and soul of the city is reflected in vibrant food and drink, grounded in history with a modern high energy twist. If you’re hungry to explore behind the scenes in Detroit and understand more about this amazing rebirth through food, join us.

Our Journey:

  • Eastern Market - Detroit’s historical food hub and ground zero for the urban farm to table movement, as well as Street Art, and entry to the Dequindre Cut Greenway.
  • Learn about the Market’s history and its current role in revitalizing Detroit’s food economy and business growth. We’ll snack on savory and sweet tarts from Susan's Tart Shop and then hike around the Market, to experience the vibe and street art.
  • Examine Detroit’s history, architecture and new growth, land use and development as we journey through the streets of Detroit to Wright and Co, in the stunningly refurbished Wright-Kay Jewelry building. We’ll be joined by Chef Marc Djozlija, as we enjoy his take on a pork-a-licious small plate and cocktail.
  • Off to Corktown, vibrant urban center of breweries, distilleries and food experiences. We'll quaff some beers and enjoy a porky snack at Batch Brewery.
  • Our final stop is (revolver), the hottest pop-up in Detroit, for an innovative "bacon re-imagined" dinner created for us by Executive Chef Sarah Welch.

Price includes all food, drink, guides, and transportation. The tour will be on luxury private bus, starting and returning to Zingerman’s Roadhouse in Ann Arbor.
