Visit the historic Skagway Inn and meet the chef and owner. He takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at the science that transforms your farm and seafood items into delicious meals. Start by harvesting items from the garden to use in the kitchen and then, prepare an Alaska salmon fillet for smoking, while learning how the preservation process works. Conduct experiments using common food items and learn how simple changes can have dramatic results. Work with local foods and ingredients for a hands-on experience while you learn about foods that were typically eaten during the Klondike Gold Rush. Use a purple cabbage to easily determine the relative acidity of various foods. Finally, you will make a decadent lemon verbena ice cream from your garden harvest. The hands-on preparation is followed by tasting your smoked salmon and discussing the ingredients and where they are available for purchase.
