It wouldn’t be a culinary tour without a hearty sampling of smoked salmon dip, the signature food for Southeast Alaskans. Nearly everyone who lives in Juneau and the surrounding communities has a recipe for this seafood dip. It usually involves a good amount of smoked salmon, cream cheese, and a few other delicious ingredients.  At Alaskan Gourmet Foods we will be tasting this scrumptious dip as well as samplings of salmon caviar and bull kelp marmalade. Don’t let the name scare you, it’s truly delicious.

Our time here will allow guests the opportunity to shop for gifts to take home or send to family and loved ones.  Only sockeye and king salmon are found in Alaskan Gourmet Foods. You won’t find any “souvenir salmon” on these shelves. As a matter of fact, this is where locals get their smoked salmon too!  The variety of tasty goodies as well as unique gifts in the sister store, Alaska Knifeworks, will ensure you have lots of treasures to take home. Oh, and you can get your own smoked salmon dip kit as well to impress your friends and family when you get home!

Most importantly, you’ll get to tell everyone that you ate salmon dip made from the tastiest salmon in the world and kelp marmalade, a unique Alaskan delicacy. It’s real Alaskan food by real Alaskans, on the Tour with Taste. To book your tour click here.
