Alaska

I haven't had much time to cook this past month for two reasons a kitchen renovation and an amazing trip to Alaska. My friend Imma Trillo took me to the Kenai peninsula of Alaska. During my trip I encountered some very interesting food.

For one thing the food, and the gas for that point, is very expensive. The price of the food rarely reflects the quality, but every once in a while you run into something amazing. While I was in the town of Hope I had a bowl of fresh clam chowder which was phenomenal. It was very rich and hard to eat in one sitting, but amazing.  They added chunks of Alaskan Halibut and Salmon to the mixture.

My favorite dish, by far, was a Raspberry Salmon Bisque I came across in the town of Kenai. The soup was a beautiful pink.  A perfect summer dish.

Another one worth noting was a cedar plank salmon dish served with roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes. I very much enjoyed this dish, but I have never had it before so I lacked a comparison. This dish seemed popular this summer, especially on foodgawker.com. This dish was from Seeward, Alaska.
