A NORTHLAND COOKERY

Welcome!

This cookbook contains a collection of many recipes frequently used by the Dean family. The recipes come from a variety of sources. More importantly, we have gathered our precious memories from our old letters, recipe cards, clippings and cookbooks. This book is a remembrance of generations of family and friends of the Northland and how much they mean to us. We count ourselves fortunate to receive these gifts from our heritage and our community of family and friends.

From the woodstoves of the 19th Century, to today's cookery of electric appliances, microwave ovens and outdoor grills, our senses bring us a multitude of wonderful remembrances:

. . . Grandma making perfect gravy at our family gatherings;

. . . Kids making gingersnap cookies;

. . . Campfire cooking, including the Paul Bunyan cast iron pan
       on Lake of the Woods and the border lakes;

. . . Fresh-baked bread and rolls in our Grandmas' kitchens;

. . . Year-round outdoor grilling in the Northland;

. . . The culinary heritage of our Northland roots, Upper Peninsula
       pasties and French- Canadian Tourtiere;

. . . and so many, many more. So let's make tracks to some recipes
       from one Northern Cookery.
