Edible cookie dough company expands
A local startup Detroit Dough is expanding to a new, temporary location inside the Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi on Wednesday, December 18. Until now the company’s edible cookie dough was primarily available at sports venues and movie theaters. Detroit Dough got started in 2017. The new location will be open for three months serving items like cookie dough twists, cookie dough bars, cookie dough and cake jars, and cookie dough sandwiches. Customers can dress them up with 15 different toppings. The shop will also feature local items like Vicky’s Homemade Ice Cream, pastries from Good Cakes and Bakes, and Bea’s Lemonade.
Renowned chef departs metro Detroit projects, again
Chef Takashi Yagihashi is cutting ties Pernoi, his three-month-old joint venture with chef Luciano DelSignore. The commute between Chicago and Birmingham was putting a strain on the chef’s schedule, according to the Detroit Free Press. Yagihashi previously gave up his stake in Ann Arbor’s Slurping Turtle. Pernoi represented his return to the Southeast Michigan scene. He’ll finish out his time at the restaurant after the holidays.
Award-winning doughnut shop Dilla’s Delights is on hiatus until January 2020 while the shop’s proprietor Herman Hayes, better known as Uncle Herm, recovers from cancer treatment. In a post to social media, Hayes states that he closed the shop in December to take advantage of a “slower” season and recover. Hayes underwent cancer treatments and was declared cancer free in June. Dilla’s team is in the process of planning a few changes to the format of the business and plans to reopen downtown on Friday, January 3, 2020.

Message from HQ: we will reopen on January 3, 2020. Thank you. ❤️ ... Happy Holidays to all of our friends and family throughout the world and the faithful customers who visit our shop. And for those who don't celebrate these times I hope that a new year on this planet brings you prosperity and happiness. We have been closed for the month of December and we truly apologize for the inconvenience and the disappointment of our availability. As some of you may know, I had a serious encounter with cancer in late June and although coming out of it victorious and cancer free I am humbly admitting that I returned to work much too soon. Therefore it was necessary that we take advantage of the slower time of the year, revamp and reconstruct the path of Dilla's Delights future and allow myself to rest and heal properly. We will reopen on Jan.3rd of 2020 with hopes of making the coming year a defining time in celebrating the life of J.Dilla and his love for Donuts. The social media communications and the modern technology process has been a difficult task for me to absorb while being hands on in the donut making, deliveries and daily functions of the shop. I plan to be more active in directly reaching out to all of you that I am capable of. Once again ….Thank you Herm
