Meet the Chef and Owner of Historic Skagway Inn as he takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at the science that transforms your farm and sea food items into delicious meals. Conduct food tests using common food items and learn how simple changes can have dramatic results. Work with foods common in Alaska and get hands on experience in smoking (cooking) and tasting a fish caught in Alaska and greens grown in an Alaskan garden. Finish up by making your own home-made ice cream! You will conduct three experiment that include smoking (and tasting) Alaska Salmon (an ancient form of preservation), using purple cabbage to determine pH of foods, and making your own ice cream dessert. This unique experience will give you the skills to bring your Alaskan food favorites home.
