Alaska! Wild Food Camp
Time & Location
About the Event
Hesketh Island is a remote, rocky outcropping in Kachemak Bay near Homer, Alaska. It’s a stunning setting, surrounded by fantastical rock formations and rich marine life. This is the site of Wild Food Camp 2021. From here, we’ll head out to sea to fish for salmon and halibut, forage seaweed, mussels and sea urchin by kayak, and pick wild berries and greens while hiking through the nearby forests. At wild food camp you’ll learn to break down whole fish and use the eggs and collars, as well as brine and smoke fillets.
We’ll forage for seaweed and infused butter and pickle kelp. We’ll make compotes, jams and cordials (for cocktails and mocktails!) with foraged berries. Join Food Writer and Chef Maria Finn and Outdoor guide and principal at True North Kayak Adventures Alison O’Hara, as they show you their favorite food-centric adventures in this spectacular setting.
Homebase will be the Smokey Bay Chalet, a gorgeous house with an open kitchen and wrap-around deck with views of Augustine volcano. There’s also a fabulous sauna for all to use.
