American Idol winner and restaurateur, Taylor Hicks, is tasting his way across the U.S., and Michigan is going to featured on an upcoming episode of his show "State Plate".

Hicks will be sampling some of Michigan's most iconic foods, including cherries, whitefish, and paczki.

What, no Faygo or Coney Dogs? I guess we'll have to watch the episode and see.

According to a release,

Entertainer Taylor Hicks tastes his way across Michigan, in search of the state’s most iconic foods. First, he harvests tart cherries to eat them with brie and then learns about the Native American traditions in preparing wild rice. Next, he plants celery before preparing it in a fresh salad and partakes in a lakeside fish boil to taste the local whitefish. Finally, Taylor gets a lesson in Polish culture as he discovers what goes into the dessert called paczki. It’s a heaping helping of imported and local cuisine from the Great Lakes region as we taste Michigan’s most celebrated foods."

The Michigan episode of "State Plate" will air on INSP on Monday, November 19th at 12:00PM ET.

To get a "taste" of what the show is like (see what I did there?), watch the promo video above.
