A Holiday Visit To Seattle's Pike Place Market

I live in the backcountry of Alaska, about 200 miles from the nearest road. This time of year, we are well into winter, and the entire landscape is blanketed in deep snow and solitude. Life is wonderful in the wilds. Shopping for the holidays is severely limited.

Forget the Fruitcake - Give these Gourmet Gifts to Your Foodie Friends

There’s no need to let this dubious tradition infiltrate your holiday gift list. The advent of modern shipping methods — overnight delivery, cooled packaging — means you can send gourmet foods your recipients will want to devour the moment your present arrives. read more »
