Groups traveling to Alaska’s Tutka Bay Lodge can join award-winning chefs (and mother-daughter team) Kirsten and Mandy Dixon for a culinary-specific package that delves into the history and technique of Alaska cuisine. As part of the package, guests will forage for wild edibles and visit a Kachemak Bay oyster farm. The package includes transportation to and from Homer, all lodging, amenities, cooking classes at Tutka Bay Lodge and a Tutka Bay Lodge cookbook. The cooking school is held on the Widgeon II, a historic, repurposed crabbing boat originating from the World War II era. Tutka Bay Lodge sits at the entrance to a 7-mile-long fjord of Kachemak Bay. It offers five private cabins, which can sleep as many as seven guests. Complimentary activities include fishing, kayaking, hiking and wildlife viewing.
