Thanks for all the fish: Julia Child’s play – The Master Chef put Port Chatham’s Nova smoked king salmon on the map.

A long time ago, when I was young, springy and inveterately unemployed, a chef named Francois Kissel asked me to help out on the heavy lifting for a benefit bash he was catering for the ladies of St. Mark’s Cathedral. The heavy part entailed opening a couple dozen dozen oysters, but they were only the baseline for the event. The big featured dish was fresh-caught Alaska King crab, flown in live and cooked on the spot. (For some reason this was illegal at the time; maybe it still is.) [email protected] 11:58

    Actually the recipe for the famous Port Chatham Nova Salmon was not sold to Trident, it was/is owned by my husband Scott Roraback, and now left to myself and his children. If you would like to see it please let me know.
    Scott and Mark Hudson were pictured in the Passport To Ballard, on page 146.
