Ski Garage

March 18, 2012


My quiver has to be stashed somewhere and I find that when I just throw what I think I will need in the back of my car, the conditions at the ski area call for another tool. There are eight pairs of skis back there, if you include my kids’ two pair, and I have […]

Green Day

March 17, 2012


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I am not one to go all out on this holiday, but I thought I would share a great recipe that I found in Wine Spectator’s “A Perfect Match” section last spring. Chef Greg Short of Masa’s in San Francisco came up with a combination that has green in the food […]

Friday Bubbles

March 16, 2012


Today I just want to share a wine that I think is worth seeking out by any lover of bubbles. Le Brut Rosé de Baumard, Crémant de Loire is lovely and versatile, yet affordable. I first found out about it because it was amongst a group of bubbly bottles that my husband gifted me with […]

Spring King

March 15, 2012


We enjoyed another sunny day in Juneau and it was so nice getting out for a skate ski. It was true spring skiing with the snow turning mushy and wet in some spots and I didn’t even need to wear a hat while I was out. I’m loving it. The weather inspired me to go […]

Joy in Motion

March 14, 2012


It is sunny and beautiful in Juneau and I am looking forward to getting on my skis. Today I am sharing a photograph that is full of essence. It is a low vantage point of a skate skier’s foot. I find myself amazed at how much this ski boot is expressing. There is so much […]

The Gift

March 13, 2012


When I first started fishing at age 10 my great-grandpa, Paul Chukan, was still part of our family operation. It was not until my second or third season that I was given the opportunity to help pick fish. Up until that point I was only responsible for making sure that the fish made it up […]

Food Fight!

March 12, 2012


No, not the cafeteria-style kind of food fight that John Belushi initiated in Animal House. This food fight is between the Bristol Bay commercial sockeye salmon industry and multi-national mining conglomerate The Pebble Limited Partnership. The fight also includes the people who reside in the Bristol Bay region and have subsisted off of salmon for […]

Eggs and Bubbles

March 11, 2012


Happy time change everybody. My daughter just did a sleepover with her Girl Scout troop and every other troop in Juneau and she had to be picked up bright and early this morning despite the time change that springs us forward. I’m home, Mari is asleep and my son is awake. All of this early […]

Originally posted on fish*wine*ski:
When you think about Bristol Bay, the fishing island of Kodiak is closer than you might realize. Its safe to say that Kodiak is the fishing hub of Alaska and many of its residents are connected to the fishery in Bristol Bay in direct and indirect ways. A number…

Bristol Bay Salmon

March 9, 2012


Eaglecrest is calling, but I would like to share some interesting food news with you before I head out. This week Bon Appétit’s online magazine shared a piece by Four Fish author Paul Greenberg about which fish to eat if you are looking for responsible and sustainable seafood choices. The list also appears in the […]
