“My sister was working in the school kitchen in St. Ignace,” Exworthy said. “The idea presented itself: ‘Why should I be working in this kitchen when I have the knowledge of the good old pasties that my mother made?’”
Now Exworthy couldn’t be happier to have Lehto’s open a second location close to home.
“My dear sister, before she passed away, she was so indeed wanting us to carry the name of the Lehto’s pasties,” Exworthy said. “Absolutely, it’s got to be continued.
“If it doesn’t, we’re going to hear it from up in heaven.”
Lehto’s Pasties in Traverse City is slated to open Monday. Hours will be Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; call 941-8090. Hollinger and Latte-Dah Catering can be reached at 642-7148.
