Not Your Ordinary Cookbook

A serious cook since he was 11, and a funny fellow for as long as anyone can remember, author J. Stephen Lay has crafted an unusual recipe book that will entertain and delight while causing your mouth to water ... well, MOST of the time. When you add the fish to a recipe for Eskimo Ice Cream, you might have second thoughts about desert.The author's recipe for brussel sprouts, which he hates beyond reason, borders on slander against this poor, defenseless vegetable. And he's rather disrespectful of the ubiquitous zucchini, too. But what are you going to do with someone who inserts beer for the chef into his recipes?

RECIPES INCLUDE...Cranberry Moose Chili...Roasted Beaver Tale...Russian Salmon Pie...Alaska Borscht, and Honey That Never Saw a Bear. You'll need fish heads, skunk cabbage, and a couple of shovels for the Stink Head recipe.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A writer, photographer, and teacher who knows his way around the kitchen, J. Stephen Lay in recent years has worked throughout North America, in Africa, in Australia, and in the Bahamas after living twenty-six years in Alaska, where, among other things, he edited food publications while at the Cooperative Extension Service at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
