There’s a lot to love about fake (imitation might be a better word, but let’s be honest) crab. It is made from pollock, which is a very sustainable fish, it is inexpensive especially compared to the “real” counterpart and it is delicious. more

Of the many ways to eat more greens, the sneaky ways are my favourite. A curry filled with warm spices and ground game is a fantastic way to get a lot of wilted greens into otherwise unwilling mouths. more

These breakfast wraps are my favorite part of every hunting or camping trip. Trekking through the Yukon has so much to offer (vast nature, beautiful views, abundant wildlife) and yet it’s the smell of these wraps crisping up over a fire that’s the... more

This is more of a combination of two simple recipes that go incredibly well together – roasted cauliflower with mint and pecan pesto can grace your table in a number of different ways. Toss with hot pasta and served with a bottle of wine for a... more

Kofta are an elongated meatball grilled on a stick. This version is really simply seasoned, but you can go in a lot of different directions with the flavour. More or less garlic. Some oregano would be delicious. A chili pepper wouldn’t hurt them... more

Fruit salad is boring – it’s a lot of chopping and peeling for an underwhelming mound of food people take a token spoonful of to push around their plate. But the concept is solid: fruit is delicious, and having someone take the time to do all the... more

Hot dog carving is my latest passion project. This past weekend I became the general of my own army comprised of perfectly seared men and women armed for battle in a soft and squishy white bun. You too can become a leader among men, all you need... more

There are a lot of great things about peanut butter, but until you’ve had it spiked with chili oil and mixed with fresh noodles you haven’t really experienced peanut butter’s full potential. This fast dish is a great weeknight meal, and a new... 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 benefits of eating local are well known and documented; it’s better for the environment, it’s better for your health, and it’s better for the local economy. But when you live north of 60 it seems daunting – even in the height of the summer... more

Of all the fantastic ingredients that the Yukon has to offer, rhubarb might be one of the most unsung. It’s prevalent in most gardens and even grows wild on the side of the road, and yet it’s fireweed, lowbush cranberries, and spruce tips that... more

Eggplant is a great way to bulk out a stir fry with something meaty and satisfying that’s not actually meat. Japanese eggplants are long and thin and tend to not have the bitter under notes that European eggplant might. They do a great job of... more

The rule of thumb when cooking squid is either really fast, or really slow. Most people lean towards fast - fried calamari is on thousands of menus all over the country because you can get a great product really quickly. But the depth of flavour... more

To be honest, I generally fill these peppers with chopped SPAM. There’s something about the salty, fattiness of tinned meat that just shines in this dish. And what you’re looking for in a simple meal like this is something that very simply just... more
