The Alaska Distillery Cookbook is the creation of Mark J. Bly, also known as The Flying Chef, a Boeing 747 airline captain whose passion is traveling the world in search of the best cuisines to adapt to his native Alaska.
Chef Bly comments: "I am delighted to create this one-of-a-kind cookbook combining the bounty of the Alaskan wilderness with the ingenious and natural spirits produced by Alaska Distillery. In Alaska, food and drink is meant to be savored and shared with no boundaries, and I believe this cookbook can deliver on that ethos for the remaining 49 states as well."
