About this ebook

Shellie Froidevaux & Ewen Bell take you on a journey into the arctic landscape in search of menus designed to cater for family sized gatherings. Step through the seasons and immerse yourself in the inspiration of each cabin and an integrated menu.

Every menu in this collection was photographed at the table, capturing real moments of celebration. The recipes come from Shellie, from her hosts and often somewhere in between. They reflect the charms of cabin life in places far north. They are genuine and delicious.

‘This far away has never been so close.’ These words at the end of the Cabin Fever Cookbook are so true! I can practically smell the whiskey and vanilla coffee from the photograph. I can hear the boots crunching in the snow and feel the cold touch of the husky’s wet nose. Quite a bit of magic happens in Cabin Fever. For starters, it might be the best idea for a cookbook for 2020 — a year that has left many of us feeling cooped up and overfed, but still hungry. But as well as the beautiful recipes, people and photography, it also gives off a soul-warming spirit of community and sharing. Cabin Fever is big enough to get deliciously lost in again and again. There’s a great mix of simple and interesting dishes to play with and helpful substitutions in case your local supermarket is out of moose mince or cured reindeer. Today my five-year-old and I made the Hallon Grottor. Delicious! Mr 5 has decided we’ll make them again to leave out on December 24th ‘because they come from near where Santa lives’. Next, I’m looking forward to trying the Cloudberry Yoghurt Cake, Dandelion Honey, Mooseballs (using roo mince in Australia) and maybe the Lobster Soup with White Chocolate for a date night in! This stunning book is such a feast!

I was so excited to see my favourite food photographer, Iron Chef Shellie come out with a cookbook! Having followed her blog/Instagram for years, I could not wait to get myself a copy. As someone who receives at least one cookbook every Christmas, I can tell you that this cookbook is something special. Everything just feels so well considered and thoughtful. With every page, I felt myself being transported further into this ice wonderland (even though it feels like 40 degrees outside). I'm super keen to test out some of these recipes - I'm already drooling over the raspberry & cinnamon braid!

A totally enthralling book from so many aspects! I know from personal experience just how much dedication, observation and preparation is behind the imagery and the recipes. Ewen and Shellie have produced something truly unique and remarkable in this publication. It's a wondrous magical journey, and as a reader we are carried along on that journey with them. A beautiful work of art in its own right, and a part of them comes as a gift to all those who want their own copy. Whether you are a photographer, a chef, have an interest in superb imagery, or just love to travel visually through someone else's interpretation of the world, then this is for you!
