Now that sounds like a cookbook I would love to have! Sounds like very fun and interesting reading. Thanks for sharing, MadCook.
Among the cookbooks I have that used to belong to my late grandmother, there is one she got in Alaska. It's just a small little spiral bound book. Among the very serious (and wonderful sounding!) seafood recipes, there is one for Whale Stew.
".....250,000 lbs. chopped carrots....300,000 lbs. diced peeled and diced potatoes....cut whale into small pieces. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 weeks. Serves 200,000....."
