Top music and book gifts for 2023 — Seattle Times

“No matter how far from Alaska one resides, the Salmon Sisters offer readers a multisensory connection to their wild and wonderful home.”
Shelf Awareness

“Laukitis and Neaton focus on how to enjoy the abundance of nature while practicing stewardship of the land, and protecting all its resources. This important message will resonate with many environmentally conscious-readers, and it is presented alongside recipes that make the most out of ingredients straight out of the wilds of Alaska: foraged herbs, salmon prepared over an open-fire, pickled kelp. It’s a cookbook that celebrates abundance, and pays tribute to precious landscapes that offer us such satisfying meals.”
Food & Wine magazine

“One thing we need more in this world is people who truly love every bit of what they do. This book celebrates just that. Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton make me want to escape to Alaska and go fishing and then cook a gorgeous feast with their recipes. You will too.” 
Renee Erickson, chef and co-owner of Sea Creatures Restaurants, author of A Boat, a Whale & a Walrus and Getaway
“Open the rich pages of Harvest & Heritage and step into another world. A landscape dotted with berries, wildflowers, and moose, an ocean rich with salmon, seafood, and kelp. . .  This is the world of the Salmon Sisters, and they are inviting you to join them through a year of changing seasons and comforting rituals. And yes, deeply satisfying food.”
The Chuckanut Reader

“In exploring and writing about the place that they love, Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton give us a seat at their Alaskan table … Harvest & Heritage is as much a cookbook as it is a call to rethink our own relationship to the place we live, the stories we tell, and the people we spend our time with.”
Anna Brones, artist, writer, and co-author of Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break
“The Salmon Sisters’ new cookbook is a beautiful celebration of how deeply the seasonal changes of the Alaskan landscape shift and shape what you eat, when, and with whom.”
Julie Pointer Adams, author and photographer of Wabi-Sabi Welcome and Al Fresco

“These pages are full of all that is charming, rugged, and delicious about Alaska. The Sisters’ life-earned wisdom translates into a manual for a good life lived anywhere.”
Barton Seaver, chef and author of The Joy of Seafood and American Seafood

“As an Alaskan, I value not just the outstanding recipes, photographs, and graphics but the attentions to our seasonal round of harvesting and the importance of sustainability and protecting the environment.”
Nancy Lord, author of Fishcamp and Early Warming

“In their new cookbook, the Salmon Sisters share 60 recipes and 35 traditions that anchor them to the seasonal rhythms of the land and sea of their Alaskan home.”
Seattle Times
