Personal and simple, earthy and warm—recipes and stories from the Steger Wilderness Center in Minnesota’s north woodsWill Steger, Rita Mae Steger, and Beth Dooley will join a Talk of the Stacks virtual event with the Friends of the Hennepin County Library on Thursday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m. for the launch of their new book, The Steger Homestead Kitchen: Simple Recipes for an Abundant Life. Please register here to receive the virtual meeting information.

This is an inspiring and down-to-earth collection of meals and memories gathered at the Homestead, the home of Arctic explorer and environmental activist Will Steger, located in Minnesota’s north woods. Interwoven with dozens of mouth-watering recipes—for simple, hearty meals shared around home chefs’ own homestead tables—are Steger’s exhilarating stories of epic adventures exploring the Earth’s most remote regions.

"Will is arguably the world’s greatest living explorer. Now, with The Steger Homestead Kitchen, he and his niece Rita Mae explore with us the power of eating locally and sustainably, and in the society of others. This gorgeous book should have a place in everyone’s kitchen—or on every coffee table." —Dan Buettner

"Whether we are huddled together in a small tent or gathered around a big table, food gives us warmth, nourishment, and community. This book is so much more than a collection of recipes: it shares wisdom gained over a remarkable lifetime of exploration and offers a timely reminder in the era of climate change that a little can go a long way." —Eric Dayton, cofounder and CEO, Askov Finlayson (and Will Steger’s teammate on Arctic Transect 2004)

"The Steger Homestead Kitchen is a very practical and inspirational book of recipes, memories, and meals from the Stegers’ Northwoods Ely kitchen. I love the sustainable, inspirational, and climate-friendly recipes and menus that were guided by Beth Dooley, an award-winning Minnesota cookbook author. This book is a good and important read." —Beatrice Ojakangas, James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame author
