    There is a strong connection between what we eat and where we live. This truth has been instilled in both my husband and I, from early on. Growing up in Southeast Alaska, we were accustomed to eating from the bounty of our ocean and forests. Now we are thrilled to be able to pass this knowledge and way of life on to not only our own family, but families everywhere.


    My husband Lucas, a former chef, takes to fishing and hunting, bringing home all kinds of wonderfully fresh meal options. I have spent the past ten years studying hands-on the foraging and harvesting of indigenous plants. We come together in the kitchen to create unique recipes utilizing our ingredients from our ocean and rainforests. We hope this inspires you to do the same.

    I love being part of the creative team at Forest Fresh Alaska. I too, grew up in Southeast Alaska in the rural village of Yakutat. Although I currently live in Alabama with my husband and children, each recipe crafted from Forest Fresh reminds me of home. As sisters, Mary and I have spent many holidays together in the kitchen, tag teaming cooking and cleanup. Though we may be miles apart we are still excited to create together. I help come up with creative recipes, as well as crafting the blogs, printable recipes and the social media feed.


    Love, Samantha
