When Maya Wilson and her three kids transplanted to Alaska in 2011, she didn't know what to expect.
But what she ended up finding was home - and she turned her love for the gorgeous landscapes and fresh, seasonal cuisine into the now hugely popular blog Alaska from Scratch.
This love letter to Alaska highlights the region's backyard-to-table, homemade food culture and seasonal ingredients.
In addition to recipes for small bites, salads, soups, and desserts, the book is arranged into Alaska Mornings and Alaska Evenings - mornings are crisp and lend themselves to substantial breakfast fare like a quinoa and egg enchilada skillet, while evenings call for nourishing and warming chilis and jambalayas.
While the book showcases Alaska's famous wild berries, salmon, halibut, and even moose, all the recipes are designed to be simple and adaptable - Wilson provides substitutions that can be found everywhere.
The Alaska from Scratch Cookbook also captures the beauty of Alaska with gorgeous, cozy photography and beautifully written essays throughout.
With the success of her blog - her recipes have been covered everywhere from Today.com and Buzzfeed to the Huffington Post - Wilson is a new voice to watch in the blogging world.
She'll include 60 newly developed recipes along with 15 blog favourites.
With The Alaska from Scratch Cookbook, she'll give readers a taste of both the food Alaska is known for and the feeling that being there creates.
