Here are more than 120 traditional and modern recipes from the descendants of Louise Framst’s parents and their large extended family; and for readers who don’t have ready access to moose, caribou or bear, there is a table of substitutions.

 

 

For millennia, the Tahltan people have lived along a salmon-bearing river, the Stikine, in the northern part of what is now known as British Columbia. Traditionally, Tahltan families hunted game animals and harvested berries and other plant foods in their own areas. When the fish were running, the families returned to the Stikine River. Here are more than 120 traditional and modern recipes from the descendants of Louise Framst’s parents and their large extended family; and for readers who don’t have ready access to moose, caribou or bear, there is a table of substitutions. Delicious-sounding recipes include BBQ Salmon, Moose Tripe with Onions, Caribou Spare Ribs, On-Your-Own Stir Fry, Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies, Light Raspberry Bavarian, and more than 120 others.

 

A Tahltan Cookbook, vol. 1: George & Grace Edzerza Family is not “just” a cookbook; the stories, photos and brief profiles of each contributor are as entertaining as the recipes. Although we arbitrarily placed these books in the grades 7-up category, many of the recipes may be used with younger children
