Alaskan Comfort Foods: Fall Edition

When the temperature steadily begins to drop, the dust settles and we see the leaves leaving the trees; those soft, fluffy white flurries might even start to fall from the sky. We know Winter is coming and our tastebuds are yearning for those savory dishes that warm the soul. Living in Alaska, we have so many delicious dishes that are unique to our state alone. With cooler temperatures, our toes might be cold, but our bellies sure are warm with comfort food recipes by our side.

Professor of psychology at Sewanee says, “Comfort food seems to be something people associate very significantly with close relationships. This probably comes about by individuals coming to associate a particular food item with members of their family and social gatherings.” 

Alaska offers many food sources that come right from our backyard. From wild, natural, sustainable Alaska seafood to hearty, savory wild game, we’ve selected our favorite comfort foods for you and your family to enjoy this season.

  1. Wild Alaska Smoked Salmon Chowder - Let’s be honest, smoked salmon anything in Alaska is a one-way ticket to yummy town. But this chowder can’t be beat and we have a great recipe for your try yourself. 

  1. Moose Stew - Anything you can make in a slow cooker is bonus for families on-the-go. This stew isn’t just delicious, it will also make your house smell incredible.

  1. Copper River Salmon - Did you know this is one of the most prized and sought after dishes in the world? In Alaska, we are lucky enough to enjoy this sweet, delicate dish without even leaving our homes. 

  1. Wild Alaska Bison Steak - Sure to warm your insides after a cool fall day, this locally sourced bison steak is delicious as a burger and in a stew as well. This lean meat will keep you satisfied and full!

  1. Salmonberry Pie - The salmonberry is often called the Alaskan salmonberry and is native to the entire west coast of North America. For a sweet (and sour) fall treat, this pie is the perfect way to finish off a hearty meal.
