Krisi's Kitchen

Written by

Alaska, known for its diverse landscapes, wildlife, and people, is by no means a barren land. It is filled with plentiful bounties for both the kitchen and the soul. Krisi Koliadko was raised in the Mat-Su Valley where she has experienced Alaska by air, sea, and land. Throughout her life, her family has embarked on lots of backcountry adventures led by her father, a bush pilot and great outdoorsman. She describes fishing trips via bush plane into remote mountain streams to fly fish for arctic grayling as being nothing short of magical. Her father took her on many boating trips in the salty waters of Prince William Sound to gather berries from the islands of the Chugach National Forest, along with catching halibut, salmon, and rockfish from the deep waters there.

Upon returning home from out-of-state university with a degree in nursing, Krisi returned to her childhood love for gathering and preparing the edible bounties of Alaska. Her life is once again filled with daily Alaskan adventures, and her table is filled with bounties from the Last Frontier. She sells kitchen goods at Homespun Alley, a local home goods boutique in Palmer, and is busy creating social media content for both delicious recipes encompassing Alaskan gathered foods and everyday Alaskan adventures. Her passion for cooking, baking, locally sourced, and foraged foods has led her to create Krisi’s Kitchen. She believes that incorporating the miraculously created bounties Alaska has to offer into the culinary experience enriches the appreciation for the great land she calls home.
