Alaskan Stuffs

        Do you like wildlife? I do, I would like to visit Alaska in order to go see the different types of animals they have that you usually don’t see in Nebraska. Alaska is the largest state belonging to the United States. Alaska enter the Union in 1959, was the first new state since 1912. Juneau is Alaska’s capital city. From the 48 states to Alaska it is 500 miles of Canadian territory from Washington to Alaska. Alaska is the closest part of the 50 states to Asia.
        My favorite part of Alaska is the wildlife and the fishing. They have grizzly bears, moose, caribou, Dall’s sheep, and red foxes. Of course there is a lot more then that. Daneils Park is year round and has extraordinary wildlife there. There is a place called Alaskan Native Heritage center. The Alaska Native Heritage center is an educational and cultural institution for all Alaskans, this place is located in Anchorage, Alaska. This placed opened in 1999. The Alaska Native Heritage Center shares the heritage of Alaska’s Cultures. They’re eleven major culture groups.
         Alaskan seafood. Alaska’s Cold Water seafood is the centerpiece of Alaskan cuisine. Alaskan salmon is one of the most important foods here and is often served as smoked salmon, cured salmon, salmon jerky, and even sweetened Indian salmon candy. You may think with Alaska’s history, that this dessert is named for Russia’s final imperial family. But that’s not the case. In fine dessert creation tradition, chef after chef throughout history found new and interesting ways to combine strawberries, cream, and liqueur.
         Whether Chef Mike Romanoff’s version was best or he was the best marketer is lost to history. Either way, the concoction of strawberries soaked in Grand Marnier and served with thick cream is now known as Strawberries Romanoff. Alaska put its special spin on Strawberries Romanoff by stiffening the whipped cream with cream cheese and serving it all over bread pudding. Thus Alaskan Strawberries Romanoff Bread Pudding was born and the world rejoiced. Seriously. If the Romanoffs had only known, they would have demanded this dessert at every meal.
