"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

The first debate between Montana’s major party candidates for its lone seat in the U.S. House was last night. It was colored by both national politics and the very local concerns of the community that hosted it — the tiny town of Frazer on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in northeast Montana.

Candidates for Montana’s House seat are calling for debates to challenge each other on key issues. But the campaigns don’t agree on when and where those debates should take place. Republican Rep. Ryan Zinke and Democrat Denise Juneau have both proposed dates and venues for debates.
