A Cache of Recipes

For centuries, elevated wooden platforms were used to protect dried fish and game meat from bears, wolverines, and other animals. Borrowing this Native tradition, many Alaskan pioneers constructed a storage cabin on stilts, or "cache," even before building a place to live.

Over the years we have published three versions of our cookbook, A Cache of Recipes. As each season brings new cooks and new ingredients to work with our recipes evolve. This year, with our cookbook inventory dwindling, we decided to go digital. 

Throughout the summer, we’ll feature new recipes on our website, slowly adding to our online archive. We hope you enjoy our new cache of recipes!
