Culinary Adventures in the Alaskan Wilderness
by Kirsten Dixon
For the past three decades, Carl & Kirsten Dixon have offered travelers both the adventure of Alaska's wilderness and the pleasures of their back country kitchens. Winterlake, the log-cabin lodge nestled along the banks of a picturesque lake, with Mount McKinley looming to the north and the dramatic and active Mount Spurr, volcano to the south, has earned a worldwide reputation for exceptional adventure & cuisine.
The cookbook offers 100 favorite lodge recipes, all arranged by season. In this very personal cookbook, which is both rustic and sophisticated, Kirsten Dixon shares her family's unique life at Winterlake. In winter, the lodge is bustling with dog mushers and skiers. Winterlake's a checkpoint of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. In spring, snow begins to melt and willow buds start to blossom. In summer, the landscape is a rich deep green as far as the eye can see. In fall, birds migrate overhead and colors turn golden just before the first snowfall. That's the time of year Kirsten is putting by summer harvest
Throughout the cookbook, you'll experience life at Mile198 along the Iditarod Trail and enjoy vignettes of the Dixon's northern dream. And maybe you'll be lured by Kirsten's invitation: "If you ever have the chance to travel to Alaska, we hope you'll visit us at the lodge."
