Alaska Cooking Tours: Prepare Authentic Alaskan Food
On our Alaska cooking tours, you will explore this state’s wild and unique cuisine through hands-on cooking classes with award winning chefs, a tour and tasting at a family-run birch syrup farm, oyster tasting on Kachemak Bay, and an opportunity to sip locally produced fruit wine in your free time.
Our first Alaskan cooking class is with two-time James Beard nominated chef, Laura Cole. She will invite you into the kitchen of her innovative restaurant, 229 Parks, for an exclusive hands-on opportunity to cook with her! Using mostly local, freshly harvested and sustainably-grown ingredients, the dishes you cook will vary depending on what is in season and available. Perhaps you will get to try your hand at cooking her tasty Reindeer Ragu over house-made ricottta!
Our second cooking class in Alaska is with Cordon Bleu chef and cookbook author, Kirsten Dixon at her exclusive wilderness lodge. Here you will cook with some of Alaska’s famous local seafood – crab, salmon, halibut – as well as seasonal vegetables, berries, and even Alaskan honey! Our cooking class takes place on a re-purposed crabbing boat that was once a World War II-era troop carrier, and lunch is enjoyed with a beautiful ocean view.
Other highlights of our Alaskan cooking tour includes brunch at the historic Talkeetna Roadhouse and a tour of family-run farms who harvest local produce.
Our Alaska cooking tours include daily breakfast, three lunches and two dinners, including the two lunches you will prepare yourself.
Please note: Dining on this tour may be challenging for vegetarian and vegan guests due to the prevalence of meat and seafood dishes.
