I've been a cook/deckhand on halibut longliners and currently on tugboats for a combined total of 15 years. Boats are a tricky place to cook . There are no floating supermarkets, I use only what items are on board to prepare meals... and then I hope the plates don't hit the deck!
Fresh Alaskan seafood is and will always be on the top of my list of favorite foods to serve and to eat! Home for me is a small fishing village called Seldovia, (means herring bay, in the Russian language). Up until the 1970s it was southcentral Alaska's major fishing port and still has a fleet of boats that fish for crab, herring, several species of salmon, halibut, several species of cod, rockfish and more. Seldovia has an abundance of mussels and clams as well. The town is filled with talented gourmet cooks that all love to cook and eat fish and shellfish. I lived there for over 25 years.
While living in Seldovia as a child, mother owned the very gourmet Wild Berry Bakery, a shop that made everything from fried donuts to french style epicurean treats. She employed me at a young age to hike the hills filling buckets full of wild raspberries, blueberries, salmonberries, strawberries, currants, low bush and high bush cranberries. She also taught me the art of baking from scratch. Years later on the north coast of California I worked in Arcata and Eureka as a barista, cake decorator, baker and manager at Ramone's Bakery & Cafe. As a result of my experience working in bakeries I absolutely love to bake!
I also lived in Sonoma County for a couple of years, hence... I have a fantastic love for wine!!!
My favorite restaurants: Longhi's in Lahaina on the island of Maui; Fat Olives in Homer, Alaska; The Flying Fish in downtown Seattle, Orso in Anchorage, Alaska; The Bear Tooth Grill in Anchorage, Alaska; Sushiya in Anchorage, Alaska...
