Meals with Midgi: Another Ten Years? Absolutely!

This week marked the eleventh anniversary of when The Captain and I met. For some reason, we never miss out on recognizing this day.  It’s a day of significance for us, even more so than our wedding anniversary, which we celebrate as well.

Meals with Midgi: Dinner is on the Table and in Alaska it’s Rockfish Tostadas

I wonder sometimes am I unique in my expectations that when dinner is on the table, my family will be ready to dine?  I don’t think so, yet I can’t help but wonder.  I give you my family for example. When I was growing up, dinner was served at 6:00pm on the dot and we…

Meet The Juneau Food Tours Team! Owner/Chief Eating Officer, Midgi Moore

A host’s  knowledge of the city, its food, its culture, and its history brings an intrinsic flavor to the tour along with sincere authenticity. Our hosts live in Juneau year-round and…
