Iowa food tradition celebrated at Michigan roadhouse | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

Chef Alex Young appreciates that his loyal clientele is so trusting.

"They know we do weird stuff. But they also know we are all about the food.''

These believers are expected to show up 50 to 60 strong on Tuesday and pay $45 each for a special event: A Dinner from the Heartland: Iowa's Food Traditions.

Young's menu includes Maytag blue cheese, Niman Ranch pork, grass-fed Iowa beef, Dutch letters and pie.


I saw this last night and thought it was kind of funny. The menu does look good, although I'm not a big Dutch letters fan.

My sister lived in Iowa for 23 years and has never had a Dutch letter. We were going to go to the Pella Tulip Festival a few years ago and wouldn't you know, they don't last through Sunday!
I love that pie is on the menu. Do other states not have pie??? I guess I'll just have to live my entire life in Iowa if that's the case cuz I love pie!!!

I guess I would think of certain pies like apple, cherry, rhubarb, etc. as being "down home" cooking or small town diner fare (although not exclusively, of course).

I think you can buy Dutch letters at Hy-Vee. I'm not sure if they're good or not. I'm not a big fan of them. I like almonds, but I don't really like almond flavored things. Maybe next time I'm at the store I'll pick one up to see if my taste buds have changed.

The only Dutch letters I've had have been from Hy-Vee. I think they leave a bit of an after taste. But as I've gotten older it seems like alot of the foods I like either taste too sweet or too greasy.
