Wild scoops 

It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside Alaskans love their ice cream… it’s true.  I personally am having a torrid affair with Wild Scoops…. their scoop shop opened downtown this summer and it is less than 2 blocks from the Boardroom where kerry Quade creative’s Alaskan Outpost is located… yikes!  The scoop shop is on a little hiatus for November but they were sure to let us all know that the test kitchen is up and running and stocking the freezers around town. It looks like I’ll be making a stop at La Bodega ( like that wasn’t happening anyway… )

oh, that is the blueberry in the photo… the color, I know right?!

Forage.

 

 

I forage and Leah dreams up delicious dinners.  A loaf of Fire Island Rustic Bakeshop sourdough was the perfect vehicle for Alaskan side stripe shrimp  set on a schemer of  lemon ricotta and dressed with sautéed fiddlehead ferns that I had foraged earlier in the day on a hike in Girdwood.
