The Alaska from Scratch Cookbook: Seasonal. Scenic. Homemade. - by Maya Wilson
Based on the wildly popular Alaska from Scratch blog, this gorgeous, warm cookbook showcases the bounty and seasonal ingredients of Alaska: wild berries, salmon, halibut and moose. All the recipes are family-friendly, simple and adaptable, with the author providing substitutions that can be found everywhere. Along with Halibut Poached in Thai Curry, Salmon Burgers with Sesame Slaw, Scallop Tostadas and Moose Shepherd Pie, she tucks in many other recipes that can complement those Alaskan-flavored ones: Strawberry Shortcake Scones, Coffee Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Sheet Pan Balsamic Chicken.
This is a beautifully comforting cookbook celebrating Alaska and its ocean-to-table, homemade food culture. Chapters include Surviving Alaska: Soups; Bountiful Alaska: Seafood; Cheers to Alaska: Beverages; and Baked Alaska: Desserts.
Says the author: "If I can make this food, you can make it, too. I am self-taught. I grew up reading cookbooks and devouring cooking shows, and have always had an unquenchable curiosity about ingredients, new flavors, and the food preferences of those around me." When you have this inviting book in your hands, we think you'll feel like she wroteit just for you.
