Documentary sheds light on ancient land and its people

March 5, 2014

Adventure photographer and author Andy Selters is taking his acclaimed documentary to Mammoth Lakes next weekend.
Beginning at 7 p.m. at Edison Theater, Selters will present “Mountains of the Blue Sheep: A Journey Beyond the Himalaya,” a stunning and not-to-miss inside look at a recent expedition to a previously unexplored area at the northern tip of India.
The live multi-media presentation is a visual and auditory journey to a far, seldom-visited corner of the world – what Selters describes as a “vastness of mountains and glaciers that shelters people and wildlife in ancient patterns.”

Grilled Sourdough with Pepper Jack, Tomato and Basil

April 13, 2012

Grilled Sourdough with Pepper Jack, Tomato and Basil
4 slices sourdough bread Fresh basil
4 slices pepper jack cheese Tomato slices
Butter Ortega chiles (optional)
Butter outside slices of bread. Heat skillet. Assemble 1 slice of cheese, then tomato, then basil, add other cheese slice and top with bread. Cook slowly until cheese is melted and bread is crispy. I also like to add Ortega chiles. If you have kids who are picky eaters, use a cookie cutter before cooking to cut into kid-friendly shapes that are easy for them to hold. Enjoy.
