When one thinks of Alaskan food, the first thing to come to mind is seafood. We locals like to boast that Alaska offers THE best seafood. Not only is it fresh from the cold Pacific waters, it’s also wild. Alaska does not have fish farms. In fact, it’s in the state constitution fish farming is not allowed.
But what if fish isn’t your thing? On occasion we will host a guest or two who is leery of seafood.
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 and the uniqueness of Alaskans.
There’s a new kid in town and Juneau is lucky to have him. His name is Tommy Patrick and he is the latest addition to Reccia’s (no last name required) delicious management team. For those of you who don’t know Reecia, she owns several eateries in Juneau. These include The Hangar on the Wharf, Pizzaria Roma, Alaskan Fish & Chips, and Twisted Fish, affectionately known by locals as the Fish.
Recently, The Captain and I attended a delicious dinner hosted by The Rookery Café. Guests on our food tour may be familiar with The Rookery. We discuss the chef, Beau Schooler when stopping at Panhandle Provisions for the delicious house smoked and cured meats.This particular dinner was quite special.
