“Food is life. Food is the key to vitality, goodness, happiness, and a strong body and mind.” Compiled by five women living in Igloolik, Nunavut, this collection of recipes brings together healthy traditional country foods—like seal, Arctic char, and caribou—with store-bought produce to create delicious meals that can be an alternative to pre-packaged foods. With details on food safety and storage, as well as information on how to build a healthy, nutritious diet, this book will help even novice cooks feel empowered to begin cooking from scratch at home. With tasty recipes from land and sea—from Arctic char pizza to caribou chili—this beautifully photographed cookbook provides wholesome, hearty meals that will become family favourites for years to come.
