Island Flavor: Bragging rights to Kodiak beef
Now that I’m on my way to Colorado to spend the holidays with my family, I’m thinking about those family traditions that are, well, not very nice. The way we shop, for example. We think it’s fun selecting, buying and even wrapping presents while the intended recipient stands beside us, watching u...

Island Flavor: Moving disrupts the gastronomical me
As most of my friends know, my family is moving. We’re not moving across the ocean — or even outside of this zip code — but the move is a disruption nonetheless. And if you’re a friend who’s only now finding out about this, I apologize. My life has been chaotic. My writing projects — previously o...

Island Flavor: Federal school lunch regs fuel old rivalry
Have you noticed how the people who got to you when you were in school still get to you? And I mean in a bad way. And, with the immediacy provided by the Internet, the person can be thousands of miles away and still get in your face? I’ve experienced this with a person I’ll call Brad. I met Brad ...

Island Flavor: Lobster a hit at VFW Post #7056
If you missed the lobster dinner recently hosted by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7056, I have one thing to say to you. Sorry, Charlie. You missed out on some good taste. Growing up in Colorado, the only lobster I encountered were those that paced pitifully in the tanks at the Red Lobster fra...

Island Flavor: Big Al’s serves up great eats in Kodiak
Forget about Obamacare, or federal budgets, or government shouting. If you really want to get political, just say who makes the best pizza. Because there's a huge chunk of the population with no informed judgment on what happens in Washington. Not so with pizza. Opinions about pizza are like bell...

Island Flavor: A year of feastiing: 10 memorable moments
It’s been 12 months since I started writing Island Flavor, and I thought I’d celebrate by revisiting some of the year’s greatest food moments. I’ve written about some of these. Others surprised me when they came to mind. It’s funny what happens when you try to condense an entire year of feasting ...

Island Flavor: A Bento Box and a Table for One
If you read the story of my taco-land adventures you know my husband Bo was recently on an extended caribou hunt on the mainland. I missed him terribly, but I admit I enjoyed small pleasures in his absence. One of these was the opportunity — most days — to eat whatever I wanted whenever I pleased...

Island Flavor: Taco Bell’s Doritos tacos locos — muy sabrosos, but hold the lettuce
It may be an odd thing for a food critic to confess, but I rarely think about food. I write about it. I take pictures of it. I produce a lot of it to sell at bazaars and farmers’ markets. But beyond that, it doesn’t occupy my thoughts. I’m one of those people who just doesn’t get hungry; it never...
