Synopses & Reviews
HUCKLEBERRY COOKBOOK (Globe Pequot)
Alex and Stephanie Hester
The first cookbook dedicated to the famous Montana blueberry
Tourists frequently travel to the northwestern states for one reason: to pick huckleberries. It is a huge industry in the Rocky Mountain states, especially Montana, Oregon, and Washington, where the weather is perfect for producing beautiful dark berries. This gift-sized cookbook is printed in huckleberry purple and includes recipes such as Huckleberry Sourdough Pancakes and Huckleberry Cheese Pie. Few berries merit a dedicated cookbook, but, if you've been to Montana in the summer, you know this book will be an instant hit.
Alex Hester is a chef and caterer, as well as a camp counselor at Intermountain Children’s Home. Stephanie Hester is an outdoors writer and program director at the National Parks Conservation Association. They live in Helena, Montana.
Residents of huckleberry country and visitors alike go wild for huckleberries every summer when the tiny purple fruits make their appearance in their remote mountain patches. Including such recipes as Huckleberry Sourdough Pancakes and Huckleberry Cream Cheese Tartlets, plus twists on classic recipes for pork tenderloin, duck, and chicken, this is a must-have cookbook for huckleberry lovers.
Celebrate the Flavor of Summer with Recipes for the Whole Year!
The very word huckleberry connotes wild places and wide open spaces, where prized picking sites are passed down from generation to generation. Bags of berries are a hot commodity at local farmers markets—to be used fresh or hoarded in the freezer for use in the long winter to come. From Huckleberry Banana Smoothies to Huckleberry Beignets to Coq au Huckleberry Vin, Huckleberry Cookbook offers more than fifty ways to enjoy the sweet, ripe taste of summer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all year round.
