We made it back from Alaska in one piece, and with many fond memories and many new friends! If you ever, get the chance to see first hand our northernmost state, by all means do it! It is truly the final frontier, largely unsoiled by our modern technology. By the way, most people know Alaska is the Northernmost state. It's also the Westernmost state. But did you know Alaska is also the Easternmost state? The International date line crosses Alaska, making part of it technically in the East.

The food was absolutely remarkable! If you are ever in the neighborhood, stop by the famous Fairbanks Salmon Bake, featuring fresh Salmon flown in from Stika, baked over Alder wood coals... you will love it!

I think you'll also love most of the recipes in this issue of your bulletin, enjoy!
