A fun read and good recipes too.
Martha Litton
They could have made the book look like it had actually been put together by the town...such as happens in real life.

This cookbook is so much fun and a must for any northern exposure fan.

This book is presented as if the reader is a resident of Cicely purchasing a cook book for a community fund-raiser. Lots of fun for fans of the show, because they will feel just like "one of the gang". Ruth Anne's character "edits" the book, but each character presents his or her recipe themselves. Very well done, everybody is definitely "in-character". Adam's contributions are especially funny. A must for all true fans!

Not only is this book a real hoot for Northern Exposure fans, it's the only cookbook I've bought in years in which no recipe has failed (yet). Every one I've tried so far has turned out just great on the first try. Experienced cooks know just how rare that is. Ruth-Anne's Meat Loaf (dried bread crumbs are fine) and The Brick's Spaghetti and Meatballs (by all means make the meatballs, but I sometimes cheat and used canned sauce) are now part of my standard repertoire, and the recipes are frequently requested by guests. Adam's Lamb Stew is terrific, but a bit more work. Overall, one of my all-time favorite cookbooks

I bought this book mainly because I'm a big fan of the show. I thought it would be neat to try the recipes and bring a little of the Alaskan Riviera to New Jersey. Kind of like a gag thing. But really all the recipes I've attempted so far have come out wonderfully and are always a big hit with guests. I've recommended it to many of my friends, NX fans or no. An excellent (and hilarious) cookbook from an excellent (and hilarious) show.

I must say, I bought this because I thought it seemed like a fun gimmick and I liked the show, but the recipes are outstanding. I grew up in test kitchens and I can say that the lamb stew is the best I've ever had-- great borscht, too. Lightfeather Duncan's mashed potatoes are the hit of Thanksgiving... but heed their warning about not using the red horseradish, as pink potatoes clash with holiday decor. Eggs Florentine recipe is also noteworthy; love the pungency of the gruyere.

I'm a really big NX fan, and this cookbook was great- interesting recipies, and ever better quotes! I loved the stories behind each recipie and the comments Ruth-Anne makes. This is a great book, even for people who don't like NX.

I really enjoy this cookbook, not just for its great recipes, but also the photos, quotes, and stories behind the recipes. The index is great because you can look up recipes by the character, or by the name of the recipe. And it even has a section for Thanksgiving, and a section for Christmas. Each recipe reminds me of the episode that it originated from, and it feels like I have a little piece of Cicely in my own home. The recipes are wonderful, and it's also a fun book to browse through and read little tidbits. A must-have for any fan of the show, it's quite a unique book.

This cookbook is so much fun and a must for any northern exposure fan. All the recipes you heard mentioned from Adam and the zabaglione he whipped up for Eve on their first date to the Cassoulet Chris had at the monastery. It has a little intro to each recipe done in character by the character. There are simple funny recipes like Joel's Jell-O and Marilynn's potatoes and more detailed ones like Adam's and Maurice's. A fun read and walk down memory lane for any northern exposure fan.

Format: Paperback
If you loved the show, this is a must. Allegedly written by Ruth-Anne Miller, Cicely's sage and owner of the general store, the book contains wry observations on the folks and life in Cicely, memories of the show and the food served and discussed on it. Surprisingly, the recipes are good - very good ... at least the ones I'd tried. I'm especially fond of the eggplant parmegian recipe. Guess I'll have to take better care of the book now that it's collectible!!
