Lynn Hicken


Lynn and her sister Kim were born and raised in Nome, Alaska, where their frequent experiences of fishing and berry picking instilled in them a love of the foods found naturally in their environment.  Once they  ventured outside of Nome, they realized how truly unique and precious the food really was and knew they could never take it for granted again.  Their mother, Thulan, is from Vietnam, and as a result, there are many heavy Asian influences on their recipes.

My sister Kim and I have been talking about the idea of publishing a cookbook together for years but it never seemed like it was really something we could actually do. But now, we're happy to announce the release of Nomemade! Click for a sample recipe.
