All of our recipes are also available on the Alaska Farm-to-School Resources page.
The UAF Cooperative Extension Service works with the Alaska Farm-to-School Program to develop recipes using Alaska grown foods and also to carry out feasibility studies to determine the cost of using Alaska grown products in-place of imported foods from the lower 48. In 2013 we have been fortunate to create a partnership with the UAF Culinary School to have an intern, Danielle Flaherty, working with us to develop these recipes. Danielle has far exceeded our expectations in her cooking skills so we hope you will try out some of the recipes she has created.
