Chef Michael Roddey will return to the Alaskan wilderness next month to cook for the popular and challenging Yukon Quest 1000 mile dog sled race.

On today's show, he talks about the race, his experience with it last year and what he'll be doing for Yukon Quest 2014.

"Much like the famous Iditarod, the Yukon Quest is also a 1,000 mile sled dog race, however more extreme; farther north with half as many check points between USA and Canada," Roddey explained. "I cooked for the mushers and handlers at the Circle, Alaska check point for last year's race and they are bringing me back to do it again."

About the Race (from the race website): "The Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race gets its name from the "highway of the north," which is the Yukon River and the historical winter land routes travelled by prospectors, adventurers and mail and supply carriers traveling between the gold fields of the Klondike and those in the Alaska interior."
