The Cooking School at Tutka Bay
When Kirsten and Carl Dixon, owners of Within the Wild adventure lodges, bought Tutka Bay Lodge, they were surprised to find that it came complete with an old boat. A very old boat. The Widgeon II carried troops during WWII. Now? The boat was grounded, with a rope humorously lassoed around a nearby tree. Rope or not, the boat wasn't going anywhere. Kirsten Dixon, a chef who puts a worldly spin on, often, Alaskan ingredients, decided the Widgeon II's next life would be as a cooking school. Open to lodge guests and day trippers who are ferried to class via water taxi from the town of Homer, a food haven in its own right, the day's lessons may have you learning how to cook reindeer or, if you're lucky, Spanish-influenced tomato bread soup with salmon bacon.
