Special guest: Yukon chef and cookbook author Michele (Miche) Genest.
Miche Genest is the food columnist for Yukon, North of Ordinary magazine. She is also author of the cookbook, The Boreal Gourmet: Adventures in Northern Cooking, a true northern cookbook featuring Yukon flavours and traditions.
Wild is wonderful when it comes to Genest’s creative treatments for northern viands, with exciting ideas such as moose cooked in Yukon brewed espresso stout and finished with chocolate, lime and cilantro, Arctic char marinated in grappa and then hot smoked, or roasted spruce grouse draped in a sour cream and Madeira sauce. As much culinary adventure story as cookbook, The Boreal Gourmet combines a portrait of northern life with an exploration of wild or country foods in gourmet recipes for the home cook. These recipes are inspired by a diversity of countries, traditions and kitchens, and spring from a love affair with the indigenous foods that flourish in the boreal forests and river valleys of the Yukon.
Miche joins us on this edition of My Yukon Life to prepare one of her classic delights from The Boreal Gourmet: chum salmon poached in olive oil.
Prepare the recipe yourself as you follow along (ingredients and other details will be listed for a limited time at http://www.myyukonlife.com/upcoming-shows/), or simply listen in and enjoy the show. This will be an entertaining, and delicious, episode of My Yukon Life!
