Nikujaga is a traditional Japanese style stew, usually made with thinly-sliced beef and potatoes and seasoned with sweetened soy sauce. While this version is more of an homage to the classic – substituting bison for beef and squash for potatoes... more

Filipino spaghetti is the perfect food; it’s meaty, savory, sweet and cheesy. And most importantly it’s filled with hot dogs. Whitehorse is lucky enough to have access to lots of great Filipino ingredients on our grocery store shelves, you can... more

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

The first time I saw this sign, I had to stop and pull over on the side of the road to make sure I had read it correctly. It was early spring in 2012 and I was travelling up the Alaska Highway for the first of what would be uncountable times... more

In our exploration of colourful collective nouns used to describe groups of animals, we have learned that many of these terms have come to us from the Late Middle Ages, more than 500 years ago. Some of these quaint words were collected in the Book... more

People driving down the highway may see a few bison, and never realize that this animal was at one time on the very edge of extinction. The bison made some people extremely wealthy, others kept some people from starvation, some were shot for... more

Why have I never written about hunting before? Maybe it’s because writing about an experience makes it more real. In the face of hunting, that is hard for me to accept. I do love my hunting partner, my husband Don, for it. He, too, is quite... more

There's something special about waking up in a cabin with a bunch of peers who all want the same thing: to catch a bison. It puts a goal in everyone's head, a sense of unity. There is also the excitement and thrill that this could be the day, the day more

When serving bison, it is ideal if the first meal you make is raved about, because if it isn't you'll have some difficulty serving the remaining 200-300 pounds in the freezer. But with a younger family, you should have no problem using up to a 100 po more

I suppose by now some hunter has field-dressed a large wood bison by themselves, but I'll bet they never want to do it again. Mature bison are very large animals, and even when they are broken down into individual parts, they might be twice as... more

It is the plains bison that thundered across the plains of North America in the days of the golden west, but it is the larger wood bison that roam free in the Yukon. Brought here in the 1980s and released into the wild a couple of years later, ... more

Our first big encounter was bison. While I am fortunate to see bison most every day, and often very close up, seeing them graze along the highway was incredibly exciting. more

If your family or circle of friends didn't harvest any bison this fall, don't despair as bison is now available in local grocery stores. As steaks, ground mince or roasts, bison is a high source of protein, iron and B vitamins. more
