Following recommendations and mandates made by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Hour Detroit has postponed the Savor Showdown series to September 30 – October 4 at the Great Lakes Culinary Center. We regret any inconvenience that this may cause but we’re committed to supporting the statewide efforts to protect public health and minimize the long-term impact of COVID-19. We look forward to celebrating the incredible culinary talent of metro Detroit this fall.
