July 30 – New Culinary Trails Passport touts Eating places in Northeast Indiana | Newest

The Indiana Foodways Alliance announced their new Indiana Culinary Trails Passport this week.

The pass recommends numerous restaurants across Indiana and offers rewards for the visit.

Trails in 21 categories encompass more than a dozen restaurants in northeast Indiana. Several local restaurants appear on more than one of the trails.

The trails provide “a great way to discover the flavors and culture in Indiana communities large and small,” the alliance said.

“The restaurants that make up these trails are family-owned, small businesses that play a vital role in rural America,” said Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch. “This passport program will help these 250+ institutions thrive and continue to be part of the heritage and culture of their communities.”

After checking in at 30 restaurants, a trail participant will receive a custom cake server. People who make 60 visits to one of the passports will receive a mug and after 90 visits the participants will receive a hat.

Visitors can also qualify for drawings all year round. The first raffle will be a raffle during the Indiana State Fair for a Blue Gate excursion package in Shipshewana with dinner for four at the Blue Gate Restaurant, four tickets to a Blue Gate musical at the Blue Gate Theater, carriage / buggy rides for four and a suite-level room or two basic rooms at the Blue Gate Garden Inn. A winter vacation to French Lick will be another prize.

People can register at visitindiana.com/cuisine to have a passport sent to them by SMS or email. The pass allows you to check-in when visiting a participating restaurant.
