Eating Alaska

Eating Alaska

What happens to a vegetarian who moves to the Alaskan frontier? One woman’s quest for a meal that makes sense; ethically, politically and tastefully! A wry search for the ‘right thing’ to eat that leads to climbing mountains with women hunters, communing with vegans and talking moose meat with teens in the Arctic. Eating Alaska provokes laughter, serious discussion and local food potlucks and sustainability events from Nome to New York.
