No one knows the fine art of New Alaskan Cuisine like "Chef Al" Levinsohn. As a chef in some the finest restaurants in the state since 1984, as owner of two of those restaurants, and as the host of the regional cooking show "What’s Cookin’? With Chef Al", he has become the face of the region’s cuisine. Now for the first time, he collects his favorite Alaskan-based dishes in What’s Cookin’, Alaska?. With a special attention to regional ingredients, particularly seafood (King crab, salmon, halibut, and scallops), as well as eye for the gourmet Chef Al has created the ultimate resource to cooking Alaskan style. Among the dishes are: Kodiak Scallop Wontons, Alaskan Snapper Ceviche, Marinated Grilled Buffalo Skewers with Shitake Mushrooms, and Wildfire Smoked Salmon Hash.
Among his many honors, Al Levinsohn is a five-time AAA Four Diamond Award winner for his Seven Glaciers Restaurant and has been seen on numerous media including the Food Network. Both he and freelance writer Jody Ellis-Knapp live in Anchorage.
