Thanks to a generous grant from the Alaska Division of Agriculture, the Downtown Market hosted seven cooking demonstrations led by chefs and owners of nearby downtown restaurants during the 2012 Market season. The chefs prepared fresh dishes from Alaska Grown produce available that week at the Market, and provided free samples to Market patrons.
If you didn’t get a chance to pick up a recipe while at the Market, you’ll find them listed below.

Many thanks to all participating chefs, and the Alaska Division of Agriculture!
