A fresh, Michigan-sourced meal sounds enticing enough — but the ingredients are gathered within an hours drive of A2? That's the delectable challenge Chef Brandon Johns of Grange Kitchen & Bar will take on during the restaurant's 52 Mile Dinner, a clever ode to seasonal produce. Everything but the salt and olive oil will be sourced from local farms, with an emphasis on using ingredients so close they could make refrigeration an afterthought. Johns is up for the culinary test — going hyper-local, he says, will "push the creativity" of the evening's menu.
