Culinary instructor, Pete Peterson, is passionate about food


Harlan Pete Petersons trip to Paris in 1976 for a weeklong cooking class initiated a career change. He left his position as a designer for Ford Motor Company to enter into the world of haute cuisine. Cooking was my passion, Peterson, Owner/chef of former Tapawingo, says. Thats why I became a chef. It was one of those moments of epiphany the time in Paris was amazing. I had never been there before and liked their culture of cooked food, bread and wine everything taken so seriously. I felt like I belonged to that world. Fresh and local, Peterson explained. That has always been our cry even back in 1984. Everything from scratch everything. Not only was Tapawingo recognized in Bon Appetit and Gourmet, it also earned the prestigious four-star rating from Mobil Travel Guide and Peterson several James Beard awards. Peterson now lives in Traverse City and spends his time as a personal chef. In addition, he instructs cooking classes at NMCs Extended Education. I like the interchange with people. I think I am at my best when I can have an audience, Peterson says. The classes are challenging too. Inevitably, mistakes are made. Part of learning is how you correct them how you save a sauce from curdling.

Inevitably, mistakes are made. Part of learning is how you correct them how you save a sauce from curdling.

He spent the next seven years at the Rowe Inn in Ellsworth, learning the art of cooking, before opening Tapawingo in 1984. Tapawingos national reputation was based on the French example - you go to the market and buy whats fresh that day.

Im pretty universal in my tastes, Peterson says. I am interested in the whole world of foodits still my passion.
