Learn how to cook a variety of international dishes as the Sitka Kitch community rental commercial kitchen hosts its Cooking Around The World class series.

This series will feature different cooks teaching dishes from Morocco, Chile, Austria, Turkey and Thailand, with all five classes at the Sitka Kitch (505 Sawmill Creek Road, inside First Presbyterian Church). Each class costs $27.50, plus a food/supply fee split between the members of the class. Space is limited, so register early.

Registration for our two February classes is open now (click the links below to register). Registration for our three later classes won’t open until mid-February. The schedule is as follows:

  • Morocco 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Feb. 18, taught by Julien Naylor, MD. Dr. Naylor is an internal medicine specialist and trained chef who is still deciding which dishes to teach. She previously taught an ancient grains class last year at the Sitka Kitch. (NOTE: This class is full.)
  • Chile 6-8:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 27, taught by Barbara Palacios. Barbara. who is Chilean, is a chef with the Westmark Sitka Hotel and the Dock Shack (Totem Square Inn). She is still deciding which dishes to teach, but she taught an empanadas class last year that was popular.
  • Thailand — 5:30-7 p.m., Tuesday, March 28, taught by Nancy Knapp. Nancy is a longtime health educator from Sitka who spent several years in Laos and Thailand. She still hasn’t announced which dishes she will teach for this class, but she taught a Thai cooking class last year that sold out quickly and had a long waiting list.
  • Austria6-8:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 12, taught by Suat Tuzlak. Suat is the former owner of the Alpine Bakery in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and co-author of “Little Cookbook For The Great Outdoors.” For this class he will teach students how to make a savory strudel with two fillings and a sweet strudel with apples that’s great with ice cream.
  • Turkey — 5-7:30 p.m., Monday, April 17, taught by Suat Tuzlak. For this class, Suat, who is Turkish, will teach students how to make a Turkish dinner that is vegan and gluten-free without using sophisticated ingredients. You will learn to make red lentil soup, green beans with olive oil, festive rice pilaf with currants and pine nuts, and a fusion dessert, chia-coconut pudding.

When registering, students should prepay for the class through the Sitka Kitch online registration site, http://sitkakitch.eventsmart.com, using PayPal or credit/debit card. If you need other payment arrangements, contact Chandler or Clarice of Sitka Conservation Society at 747-7509 to arrange a time when you can pay with cash or check. To qualify for a partial refund, please notify us at least three days in advance if you need to cancel. The registration deadline is three days before each class so our instructors have time to purchase materials. Please email sitkakitch@sitkawild.org with any questions.

Also, keep an eye out for another upcoming class series this winter/spring — Nourish: Using Food As Medicine For Optimum Health — which will be taught by Sitka nutritionist Holly Marban during National Nutrition Month in March.

Details are coming soon, but class topics include nutrition foundations, balancing blood sugar, everyday superfoods, foods to fight inflammation, and and detox. There will be five classes from 6-8 p.m. on Mondays, March 6, 13, 20, 27 and April 3. When we open registration, we will post the entire series first (students will receive $20 off if they register for the full series, $117.50 vs. $137.50, plus food/supply fees) and about a week or so before each individual class we will try to fill any empty spaces remaining.

SitkaSoundSuppersLogoEating local in Sitka can be an amazing experience. We have wide variety of high-quality seafood, including five types of salmon, halibut, blackcod, dozens of varieties of rockfish, ling cod, Alaska king crab, Dungeness crab, scallops, spot prawns, yum. There also is Sitka black-tailed deer and other wild game. And there’s nothing like the taste of fresh produce from the garden, and our berries are exquisite.

Now you can experience the best of Sitka’s local food scene with Sitka Sound Suppers: A Chef-To-Table Experience, a fundraiser for the Sitka Local Foods Network. (NOTE: Please see the update below.)

Three Sitka chefs — Kathy Jones (Westmark/Dock Shack), Edith Johnson (Fly-In Fish Inn), and Jackie Barmoy (former owner of Loaves and Fishes in Seattle) — have volunteered their talents to prepare a totally local meal that will be brought to your Sitka home for you to enjoy.

  • Donate at the $500 level and you receive a local Sitka dinner for two people.
  • Donate at the $1,000 level and you receive a local Sitka dinner for four people.
  • Donate at the $2,000 level and you receive a local Sitka dinner for eight people.

We are planning on preparing just one special dinner at each donation level, so get in on the promotion early. (UPDATE: We have decided to allow multiple dinners for each donation level instead of a single dinner. We didn’t know how many people would respond, so didn’t want to overtask our chefs, who are donating their time and talents to this promotion. So, even though we already have a donor at the $500 level, we can accommodate a second and/or third donor at that level.)

The Sitka Sound Suppers fundraiser launched on July 16 and ends after our final Sitka Farmers Market of the summer on Sept. 12. The winners of our meals will be connected to our chefs, so they can agree on a menu and date for the meal during the Fall 2015 harvest season (late September to November). All meals will be prepared and served in Sitka, Alaska. You can learn more about the Sitka Sound Suppers fundraiser by watching this video.

The funds raised by this promotion will help the Sitka Local Foods Network continue its work promoting local foods in Sitka and Southeast Alaska through the Sitka Farmers Market, St. Peter’s Fellowship Farm communal garden, and our education programs. As the organization has grown and matured, we’ve reached a point where we need to hire a part-time staff person to handle some of the daily duties of our organization. Your donations will go into a fund to help us eventually be able to hire that staff person.

Your support for the Sitka Local Foods Network is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

By the way, if you want to contribute to the Sitka Local Foods Network but not receive one of the Sitka Sound Suppers, you can go to our main fundraising page on Razoo.com (a fundraising/crowdfunding site for nonprofit organizations) and donate in any amount over $10 there. Your online donation is secure and tax-deductible (we have federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit status). Thanks again.

Local 1Looking for locally grown garden starts at reasonable prices? The Sitka Food Co-op just loaded up 12 boxes (about 15 trays of 4-inch pots) of garden and herb starts to bring to the “Local Producers Table” at the Sitka Food Co-op monthly box pick-up from 4-6 p.m. on Monday, May 20, at Grace Harbor Church (1904 Halibut Point Road).

This will be in addition to the regular Sitka Farmers Markets (alternate Saturdays from July through September) and Saturday work party sales at St. Peter’s Fellowship Farm (alternate Saturdays from the markets).

For more information, go to the Sitka Food Co-op page on Facebook or to the Sitka Food Co-op link above.
