Reviews

"This book is chocked full of authentic recipes. This book brought back a lot of wonderful memories. That's what makes these books so awesome, it's not just the recipes, but the stories and pictures from all over each specific state. It made this reader want to travel, and try these native dishes." --Kay


"I was a little dubious about ordering this cookbook. Alaska isn't famous for it's cuisine. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised! It turns out there's a lot of good cooking in Alaska! With those loooong, cold, winter nights there isn't a lot to do except eat, and Alaskans seem to have figured out that you should eat well! The cookbook focuses on recipes using the wealth of fish, seafood and game available to Alaskan cooks, as well as native fruits and berries. There are many, many tempting recipes for moose, venison, salmon and halibut. Almost all of the recipes (with the exception of the Eskimo recipes included more as a curiosity) are easily adaptable in the Lower 48 using different fish or meat. Check out this cookbook -- you'll be pleased with it, I'm sure!" --Bridgett Garrett

Includes the Sea Food Theme
