"Currently Alaska imports 95% of it’s food. Former chef at Seven Glaciers in Girdwood, The Crow’s Nest in Anchorage and Emeril Lagasse’s NOLA restaurant in New Orleans, Tlingit Chef Rob Kineen is on a mission to bring more local foods to Alaskan dinner tables and restaurants.

In his talk on “Alaska’s Food Culture” recorded at the Anchorage Museum, Chef Kineen talked about many Alaska food upstarts in Alaska as well as some of his modern dishes made from traditional ingredients like muktuk sushi.”

Apparently the dish pictured is a salad involving Alaska crab…

(The talk airs today on KSKA at 2 pm. We will post a link once it’s online.)
