Meals with Midgi: A Taste of Spring (May it Arrive Soon!)

Springtime seems to have skipped Juneau.  Oh we did have a few weeks of sunny weather, which was much appreciated by all of us locals, even though the temperatures were still rather chilly.  However, May and June are normally the driest and warmest months here.  Not so much this year. In May we had rain…

Cheers to a Tasty Winter!

This winter Juneau Food Tours launched a series of wine education classes. We’ve been asked several questions regarding the classes and what makes them different from, say a wine dinner. Here are a few of the frequently asked questions: Wine tastings happen all the time, what’s the difference? We LOVE wine tastings! The more the…

Meals with Midgi: Minkie’s Coconut Cake

Life is short, eat dessert first. This is something The Captain says at least twice, maybe three times a week. He loves desserts. Fortunately, his 6’4” frame can handle eating a few sweets more than once a week. One of my greatest pleasures is cooking for him, and although I’m not much of a baker,…

Meals with Midgi: Sweet Flavors of Fall

Like most Alaskans, I love me some king crab.  During the summer I frequent Tracy’s King Crab Shack several times in a gluttonous frenzy to get my fill before the season is over.  I have also been known to dine on this savory crustacean at many of the other fine eateries in Juneau.  One thing…

Meals with Midgi: When a taco isn’t just a taco

There’s something about tacos. They are magical food. Take an ordinary corn or flour tortilla, fry it just a bit, then fill it with whatever your heart desires. I’ve written about my quest to eat fish tacos at every place available in Juneau. I am still looking for suggestions, so please keep them coming. There’s…

Meals with Midgi: Life Sure is Peachy

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending my third International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC). This annual event brings together 300 or more men and women who photograph, research and write about food and the culinary industry. In other words, they’re my kind of people. The 2016 conference was held in Sacramento, the Farm…

Will Write for Food

As I sit at my desk writing this blog, my mind wanders to 2014 when I attended my first International Food Bloggers Conference.  It was held in Seattle, which is a mere two-hour flight from my home in Juneau, Alaska.  I was excited to attend and I remember a bit nervous as well. I had…

Celebrating the Seas

Juneau has a way of bringing people together. I have never lived anywhere where community truly meant so much. Whether it’s the 4th of July parade, the Maritime Festival, or even the most recent hot dog event with the Juneau Police Department,  we enjoy coming together as a family related through the common bond of Alaska…

Retail Partner Highlight – Sketch Studio

We know that many of our guests arrive to Juneau via cruise ship, which limits their time here in Alaska’s capital city.  The tour is only 2.5 hours to allow guests plenty of time to explore more of the city.  One of the top questions guests ask is “Where can I shop for local items?”…

Meals with Midgi: Perfecting Southeast Salmon Tacos

Is it me, or is there an abundance of places in town with extraordinarily delicious fish tacos? There’s the Hangar, with its seared halibut fish tacos. V’s Cellar Door restaurant and food truck have killer fish tacos. Then there’s the Taqueria. Let’s not forget the Baranof’s Capital Café, which has amazing fish tacos. So good…
