Cookbook to showcase recipes from Norton Sound residents, featuring prized Norton Sound seafood
NOME—Norton Sound Economic Development Corporation (NSEDC) has extended the call for recipes and photos for a cookbook featuring dishes made from Norton Sound seafood. Norton Sound residents have until
Friday January, 30th Tuesday, March 31st to make submissions for the cookbook.
“Our fisheries are like no other in the world. Norton Sound residents have the most experience and the most unique ways of preparing salmon, crab, halibut and the resources from our ocean waters,” NSEDC Chairman Dan Harrelson said. “A majority of our residents have harvested and prepared Norton Sound river and ocean resources their entire lives. This cookbook will serve as a small—but significant—way to celebrate our vibrant food and culture.”
The Norton Sound Seafood Cookbook will be available for sale at the Norton Sound Seafood Center in Nome and through the online retail store NortonSoundSeafood.com. The seafood center sells Norton Sound salmon, red king crab and halibut, along with food items that may be difficult to find in Nome. “We have prime seafood available from the Norton Sound, in the Norton Sound,” said the Norton Sound Seafood Center’s Justin Noffsker. “We’re really excited to share the richness of the lifestyle and family traditions showcased through the simple beauty of this cookbook. We live in a great place and through the photos and recipes collected from our very own neighbors and friends, residents will have the opportunity to exhibit the richness of our lifestyles in the Norton Sound.”
Residents with submissions used for the Norton Sound Seafood Cookbook will receive a free cookbook upon publication.
