What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

“Not the first major Northwest cookbook in recent years, but probably the best.”  —-Kirkus Reviews

Hibler, a Portland, Oregon, food writer, has good cause to celebrate the region’s vast bounty. Indigenous to this majestic corner of the United States are not just Dungeness crabs, but Olympic oysters, Chinook salmon, and an array of waterfowl, wild mushrooms, and juicy berries. Hibler’s soups are savory, her breads are robust, her meat and game dishes he-man enough to fell a forest, and her desserts are like a passkey to childhood.”  —- Kristen McMurran, People magazine

“A delightful read…The recipes combine the familiar and the unusual in a most refreshing way…This book will probably bring tears to the eyes of onetime Northwesterners and will whet the appetite of would-be Washington and Oregon travelers.”  —- Ann Burckhardt, Minneapolis Star Tribune
