"Flavors Under The Big Sky" With Stella Fong

Aug 6, 2020

"Flavors Under the Big Sky: Recipes and Stories from Yellowstone Public Radio & Beyond and the radio show that gave rise to it, Flavors Under the Big Sky: Celebrating the Bounty of the Region, are my homage to Montana and to all the people who have shared their food stories with me. This book reflects the evolution of my cooking after moving to Billings from San Diego twenty years ago. It is a small representation of the food I now cook after unearthing the bounty available here. This is a cookbook where I took Montana basics and created a world of flavors. Let this book be one you use over and over when you cook under the Big Sky." – Stella Fong

With more than eighty recipes and stunning photography, writer and radio host Stella Fong marries cherished local ingredients with world flavors.

Dishes like Pheasant Stir-Fry with Black Bean Sauce and Elk Kielbasa with Pomegranate bring international flair to familiar game. Rhubarb Raspberry Polenta Cake and Pavlova Roulade with Sour Cherry Sauce and Toasted Almonds give new life to market and garden staples. And stories of local culinary trailblazers pay tribute to the Treasure State’s abundance.
