#AKfood: Foragers, hunters and harvesters

Posted by Julia O'Malley on August 30, 2013 

#AKfood's feeds are all foragers and harvesters right now. Here's a sample from my visual spread: Maya Evoy of Alaska from Scratch had a nice haul of wild porcini, food-Instagramaholic Trysha Mapley was digging up potatoes, allergy-free cook Megan Lierman pulled some rainbow carrots, and Anchorage Food Mosaic's Shannon Kuhn made wild blueberry waffles

Th local blogosphere is heavy with wild food recipes including a salmon quiche recipe from Heidi Drygas, Sandra Firestack's three cheese moose lasagna and grilled oysters from Kim Sunée. 

Finally, it appears that giant local zucchini continues its (oppressive?) reign. A few cooks are still making the best of it. Allergy-free Alaska whipped up zucchini-sweet potato hashbrowns. Sandra Firestack from Juneau offers a versatile big-batch Alaska zucchini bread recipe.
