Come to the co-op and meet Maya Wilson, Alaska food columnist and author of “The Alaska from Scratch Cookbook.” Maya will sign copies of her new book from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 12.
This is her only Fairbanks event, so mark your calendars. It’s also Mother’s Day weekend and the perfect opportunity to get a lovely Alaskan gift for somebody special.
About the Author
In 2011 Maya moved from California to Alaska and launched the food blog Alaska from Scratch — a website dedicated to beautiful, approachable recipes for home cooks, along with frequent glimpses of Alaska’s unrivaled scenery and unique lifestyle. Since then, her site has grown to be Alaska’s premier food blog, reaching a global audience in the millions each year. Maya is also a chef and food columnist for the Anchorage Daily News and lives on the Kenai Peninsula with her family.
The Alaska from Scratch Cookbook is so much more than a collection of delicious recipes with gorgeous photos. This is a cookbook well worth reading and savoring, whether you ever intend to cook the dishes or not.
“Nothing about life is perfect, and food doesn’t need to be perfect either,” Maya writes. “Food shows up in the messiness of our daily lives, grounding and sustaining us through all the moments, whether mundane or celebratory or grief-stricken. Amid the noise and chaos of the daily grind, we should be able to come to rest at the table…. I want people to feel welcome, to kick their feet up, and to have the freedom to be themselves around my food.”
Cookbooks are available for purchase at the co-op. If you’ve already picked one up, be sure to bring it back on Saturday to have it signed.
