    Eric’s Christmas Moose Stew

    I’ve got a moose stew I usually throw together in the winter for a party. I get it going on the stove, and when it's done I set it on the fireplace with a ladle and some bowls laying around for people to tie into it whenever they feel like it. more

    Grilling Salmon

    Salmon can be grilled in your oven. Then, it’s referred to as broiling. It can also be grilled on the barbeque, or carefully over a campfire. During our lengthy winters broiling is the usual method at our house, but occasionally I dig the snow... more

    Moose, Spinach and Sunflower Seed Strudel

    One of my favourite things about living in the Yukon is being able to eat wild game. Like, a lot of wild game. And I know that many of you are in the same glorious position – so here is my attempt to give some of the hunters out there some recipes... more

    Oven Stewed Rhubarb with Cornmeal Biscuit Crumble
