The northwoods spreads from coast to coast (Maine to Washington) featuring indigenous ingredients from mussels to mushrooms, venison to salmon. This beautifully photographed book is the first to concentrate on this regional cuisine. The Northwoods Table is a recipe book like no other. The recipes consist of many foods found in the northern tier of the United States, some wild and some cultivated, which when combined with classic cooking techniques and new, exotic, imported ingredients, give birth to what we call Northwoods Cuisine. Recipes include Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup; Stewed Pumpkin and Apples; Mousseline of Morels, Yellow Squash, Fiddlehead Fern & Roasted Red Pepper; Spicy Roast Duckling with Raspberry Sauce; Grouse with Morels & Wild Rice; Lake Trout en Croute, Oven Roasted Lake Perch; Salmon Roulade and many more. The ingredients and combinations should enable any cook to create the ambiance of a log cabin with a fire crackling in a pot-bellied stove.
