  • About

When Harlan “Pete” Peterson was growing up in North Dakota, his mother made individual dumplings, delicately folding the edges of a flat round of pie crust dough up and around the fruit. Pete is now chef-owner of Tapawingo, a converted shingled farmhouse in Ellsworth, Michigan, where he puts local products to imaginative use. But he still makes his mother’s dumplings, combining fresh fruit with Michigan dried cherries. All sorts of fruit combinations are possible here; mix and match as you
