It's weird how this still comes up. Really big chip.

Oh Alaska is gorgeous. I have upcoming trips to Fairbanks and if I can make the numbers work (so it’s not more expensive for the client) I want to do the Anchorage to Fairbanks train at least once.

Thank you to SLBunge, F Street Station wasn’t even on my radar. When will you be there? I will be in Anchorage again beginning the 6th.

I'm there from 4/1 - 4/4. Potential uptick to 3-4 days per month if this trip goes well.

I've been to Anchorage several times in the last year and going again next week. Mostly during off season. Agree that it is not a great food town.


I like the Moose's Tooth well enough. Particularly good with a mid-sized party. Ate there last summer in daylight at 10:30pm.


My favorite meal in Anchorage was probably at Spenard Road House: good food and decent cocktails.


If you hit it on a night when there is a decent special, F Street Station in downtown can be good. If not, just get the halibut sandwich and a drink at the bar. (I think this place gets completely overrun in the summer.)

What's impressive, Lippy, is the lack of effort for the result.    Maybe 5 cuts, whir the herb stuff in a blender, spread it on, tie it up and it's done.    Took maybe 10 minutes at most.    My kind of cooking!

Looks good. There is a recipe for Mock Porchetta in the Zuni Cafe cookbook that is also very easy. You start with a pork shoulder and cut the "veins" of fat and stuff those with herb/lemon mixture and tie it into a roast shape, surround with vegetables and put it into a cast iron skillet for roasting. I tend to go overboard with fennel because we love it.


I can't vouch for this website but it has the recipe from the cookbook: https://shadowcook.c...mock-porchetta/

Interesting piece about Niki Nakayama
