Inspired by her new home in New England and the slow food movement re-energizing sustainable farming, Kate Christensen picks up where she left off in her last memoir, Blue Plate Special . In an ode to How to Cook a Wolf , M.F.K. Fisher's classic culinary guide about surviving poverty and war with grace, Christensen creates a tempting, modern stew that will delight readers as only she can, using the magic ingredients of true love, personal appetite, humor, history, and original recipes.

Christensen also examines the dilemma of food scarcity in a time of possible climate collapse, turning to her own backyard for long-term solutions. Taking tips from the lives and landscapes of the farmers, fishermen, hunters, and families who live in this grueling northern climate and still produce abundant, healthful food, she retraces the histories of staple ingredients native to the region and explores what it's like to live, love, and cook on the edge.

I personally, never cooked a moose in my life time. I am almost willing to get this book, soon enough. What do people always say, "Try new things!''
