Meet the Team
I’m Mary Smith, Managing Editor and founder of Edible Alaska. I’m not the first person to say, “we need Edible Alaska” which is why this magazine and online resource belongs to all of us.
I work with my husband, David Whitmire, as a commercial troller out of Sitka. We eat really well on our boat. I’m also a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and spent 15 years as a marketing professional in the seafood industry.
But that’s enough about me. We want to hear about you. What you grow, fish, hunt or gather. What you like to cook and what what you like to eat. Where you like to eat. And drink. And shop.
