  About a hundred people Tuesday visited the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association offices in Anchorage to celebrate the publication of a book with hundreds of recipes for traditional dishes, as well as historic and contemporary photographs of food gathering and cooking, stories and much more. Author Suanne Unger says she and nine collaborators, plus many more contributors, worked on the book for six years, compiling recipes, interviewing elders, and searching for photographs. The CDC helped pay for the research and publishing, which allows APIA to sell the book for $25 per copy.
