And she knows whereof she speaks, for Mrs. Allman is an expert chef and curator of The House of Wickersham in Juneau where a specialty is "flaming sourdough." There are folks in Alaska who claim the staff of life in their sourdough pots is more than 40 years old or date it to the time when Fairbanks was a mining town. Alaska Sourdough -- handwritten to match the old-timer recipes -- includes directions for several starters that can ripen in varying times, 3 days to 1 year.
And once the pot is a-bubblin' there's no end to the fun and flavor. More than 95 recipes -- hotcakes to doughnuts and many delicious accompaniments -- scads of time-tested advice for the novice and plenty of lore for sourdough useful last word on sourdough cookery.
