Featuring: Michele Genest and Kim Thúy
In A Boreal Feast, Michele Genest takes the reader on a journey to Norway, Finland and Sweden to discover what other northern peoples do with the same wild ingredients that live and grow in the North American boreal forest. Hosted by Käthe Lemon.
Part travelogue, Genest’s book includes stories of hunting for cloudberries on the Dempster Highway, throwing a birthday party on the Kaskawulsh Glacier, and harvesting trumpet chanterelles in Nordland.
Kim Thúy has worked as farmer, seamstress, restaurant owner and lawyer before devoting herself completely to writing in her Montreal home. She presents Mãn, about a woman with immense culinary talent.
