Recipe: Cascadia Blueberry Salmon

If you’ve been following my content for any amount of time, you should know what a special place Cascadia has for me. It’s where our family decided to make our new life here in the Pacific North West. It was the first game I reviewed for my channel. It was the first episode of my podcast that we had guests for. It helps that the game itself is pretty great too. It’s been a pleasure to be part of the community coming together for the love of this game. I was excited for the team behind Cascadia when it recently won the Spiel des Jahres, so I decided to revisit my original feast and tweak it to share with all of you.

Salmon is relatively cheap and plentiful here in Vancouver, so I used a nice cut of Sockeye for this recipe, but you can use whatever variety of salmon is accessible for you, including frozen, just remember to pull out any bones before cooking. We’ve also been completely inundated with cheap blueberries over the summer and my toddler can only eat so many. But frozen work just as well, you’re going to be cooking them down in into a puree regardless.


Recipe: Burncycle Pumpkin Ice Cream with Burnt Caramel

I’ve done a terrible job of keeping my promise to keep this blog updated. Other commitments continue to make keeping a consistent content schedule difficult. But I’ve continued to have a lot of fun experimenting with dishes and formats. I’ve been live-streaming on Twitch semi-regularly, recording the Omnigamers Club Podcast every couple of weeks, and trying to get back into the routine of posting traditional review videos.

I’m still zeroing in on the best way of making my food content engaging and relevant and one thing I’ve been meaning to try for a while, is to create recipes to share my creations. Board Game Feast has always been about sharing, starting with my friends on games day, before I even had thoughts of posting it online. Now I’d love to inspire others to bring some flair to their games/dining table to share with your own family and friends and create lasting memories

I’m still looking into the best format for this. WordPress sadly doesn’t seem to like the traditional printer-friendly recipe and I need to do some research before spending money on a better system – let me know if you have any suggestions! For now I’ve created a recipe-book style graphic that will be hosted here.

I’ll keep this short to avoid the classic pre-recipe essay but let me know if this is something you’re interested in. Is there one of my previous creations you’d like to see a recipe for?

I’m starting off with some ice cream to beat the summer heat and pair with Chip Theory Games’ latest offering, Burncycle!

When hacking a megacorporation it’s important to carry icebreakers, but when the heat really builds why not take off the edge with some ice cream.
