I think this is a great cookbook, full of entertaining stories and great new recipes and ideas for ingredients that can be discovered in the great outdoors. I cook everyday from scratch and found the new interpretations of recipes exciting to make and discover.Recipes may pose a challenge if you do not live in the great Northern areas of the country, because many of the ingredients are very local specific, but if that's what you're looking for, this is the cookbook for you. We made spruce tip everything this year and can't wait to try the recipes using the berries off our Mountain Ash this season!
In "The Boreal Gourmet: Adventures in Northern Cooking", food columnist and experienced chef Michele Genest has compiled an impressive 224-page compendium of recipes featuring ingredients found in the northern climate and culinary culture of Alaska. Superbly illustrated throughout, the dishes range from The Chocolate Claim Cranberry Chutney; Pine and Macadamia Nut Baklava with Spruce Tip Syrup; Fresh Turnip, Red Pepper and Raspberry Salad; and Wrapped, Roasted Caribou with Demi-glace; to Potato-Apple Latkes with Smoked Salmon and Wasabi Cere Fraiche; Sourdough English Muffins without Yeast; Moose Lake Lasagna in a Pot; and Dall Sheep with Preserved Lemon, Olives and Prunes. With dishes that will please any gourmet palates and satisfy any appetite, the ingredient lists and step-by-step preparation instructions will enable even the most novice kitchen cook to produce professional 5-Star quality fare for any and all dining occasions.
Well organized, lavishly illustrated and the recipes are straightforward and clear with readily available ingredients. I can't wait to try them.
The inside is as intriguing and gorgeous as the outside of the book. Loved it.
