Are you SURE about that, chef, that the "women soften the skins by chewing them"?
I mean, we visit Anchorage, Fairbanks and Seward frequently (like once a year), and I have never seen any women chewing on animal skins.
That was a method used many decades ago, but I don’t think that the "chewing method" is being used today.
Of course, I could be wrong, because my hired guide and I could not possibly visit EVERY nook and cranny in the far-flung Alaskan villages.
But you know what . . . I NEVER encountered Foie Gras in Alaska. If I had, we would have checked it out!
My wife and I will be touring Anchorage again in August (our reservations are at the Marriot). WE would really like to visit one of your restaurants and enjoy some local foie gras.
Could you please provide us with the names of your restaurants so that we may sample your menu(s).
Thanks in advance! [:)]
