True North Cabin Cookbook offers ample opportunity to savor north woods living at its very best"--



Book Synopsis



Celebrate summer days with seasonal foods and cherished tales of life in the northland, as the author's recipes and personal recollections transport readers to a lakeside cabin in the north woods.

Summer is prime cabin season. The cabin might be large or small, plush or rustic, lakeside or far off the trail. Regardless of the setting, adventuresome days of hiking or boating or lounging are fueled by hearty, home-cooked meals.

The rhythms of cabin life are very familiar to food enthusiast and genial host Stephanie Hansen, who relishes the opportunity to dazzle with simple ingredients from pantry and garden, creating memorable and delicious meals for friends and loved ones. Her family cabin sits far to the north on picturesque Burntside Lake in Ely, Minnesota--a boat ride away from the nearest grocery store and a world apart from the demands of everyday life. From her perch on True North Island, Hansen tells warm and witty stories and shares favorite recipes for the summer months. In May, she offers cozy dishes like Beef Bourguignon and Drunken Cowboy Beans followed by a sweet and tart Rhubarb Skillet Cake, while June might call for Molasses Pork Chops accompanied by Roasted Carrots with Scallion-Ginger Sauce. For the lazy summer days of July and August, the classic Fried Walleye with Lemony Tartar Sauce might hit the spot, or a Grilled Ratatouille with Herb Vinaigrette to take advantage of the fresh seasonal vegetables. As autumn starts to creep in during September, Grilled Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki Feta Sauce and Warm Bacon Potato Salad keep the summer vibe going. Throughout the months, Hansen shares recipes for desserts both simple and adventurous--from a No-Bake Layered Lemon Loaf with Blueberries to Molten Chocolate Cakes--and refreshing cocktails to meet your every mood.

Hansen's straightforward, creative, tasty dishes will nourish those who gather at your table--whether at the cabin or at home. True North Cabin Cookbook offers ample opportunity to savor north woods living at its very best.



Review Quotes




"Everyone
is seeking a simpler, more localized, and home-crafted lifestyle these days,
and Stephanie Hansen's True North Cabin Cookbook delivers that by the
barrel. You can smell the pine woods, hear the rain on the lake, feel the sun
on your skin. Most important, tasting the incredible recipes gets everyone to
their True North."

Andrew Zimmern, award-winning host of Bizarre Foods, What's
Eating America
, and Family Dinner

"Stephanie
Hansen has captured and elevated the Minnesota tradition of 'going to the lake'
in her delicious recipes. Even if you don't have a lake cabin, you'll want to
sit on the porch with a Rhubarb Gin & Tonic, bring a Cherry Tomato Tart
with Fresh (homemade) Ricotta on a picnic, and celebrate with a Chocolate
Zucchini Bundt Cake! This book is everything we love about being at the lake,
without the mosquitoes."
Zoë François, host of Zoë Bakes

"True North Cabin Cookbook is a collection of useful,
family-friendly recipes and sweet remembrances of time spent at the lake.
Stephanie Hansen covers the Minnesota favorites, but with updates that add a
little metro sophistication, too. With crowd-pleasing meals, drinks, and
desserts, this book will become a well-thumbed heirloom to take to the cabin or
use at home."
Robin Asbell, author of Plant-Based
Meats: Hearty, High-Protein Recipes for Vegans, Flexitarians, and Curious Carnivores

"True
North Cabin Cookbook
is an invitation to gather with Stephanie Hansen's
family and friends and enjoy the seasons up north with stories and recipes. Here
you'll find the aroma of delicious food coming out of the kitchen and off the
grill. Get comfy in your deck chair, help yourself to one of Dolores's
shortbread cookies, and get ready to laugh, cry, and cook."
Patrice
M. Johnson
, author of Land of 10,000 Plates: Stories and Recipes from
Minnesota

"Stephanie
Hansen has infused the rustic simplicity of Minnesota cabin cooking with big,
fresh flavors woven into family stories. Hansen is a wonderful cook and a gracious
hostess, and I loved this peek into her delicious life at the lake. Is there
such a thing as the perfect hostess gift? I say yes, and it's this charming
book."
Stephanie A. Meyer, author of Twin Cities Chef's Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the
City of Lakes to the Capital City

"You
don't need to own a cabin by a Minnesota lake to appreciate the love of family,
friends, and good food embedded in every page of Stephanie Hansen's True
North Cabin Cookbook
. We are invited to enjoy a season on True North
Island, where mouthwatering recipes are laid out month by month, using
ingredients at their absolute best, in recipes both simple and sophisticated.

"True North is an intimate cookbook, full of
Stephanie's lively stories and favorite dishes, accumulated over decades of
cabin life. I felt like I was cooking along with Stephanie in her cabin
kitchen, sipping a refreshing cocktail and enjoying a beautiful view of her
beloved Burntside Lake."
Meredith Deeds, coauthor of The Big Book of Appetizers, The Mixer Bible,
and 300 Sensational Soups / Star Tribune Taste columnist
