Yukon Culinary Festival Satellite Event – The South comes North – Ole!
Join us for a one-of-kind culinary experience celebrating local ingredients and local chefs. Spanish, Mexican and Aztec inspired dishes await you at this event. Try your hand at pressing your own wheat and corn tortillas. Sip Tequila spiked cocktails while you watch the Chefs prepare traditional Spanish Paella in front of you. Ione Christensen (former Yukon Senator, Mayor and granddaughter of 1898 Klondike Gold Rush miners) will be here to tell the story of her family’s sourdough starter from 1898.
On the menu (depending on ingredients availability): Fresh Fruit Margaritas with top shelf Tequila, White Wine Sangria, Mexican Street Corn, Chicharrones (Crispy Pork skins), fresh Salsas, cooked Salsas, Spanish Paella with Alaskan Seafood and Icy Waters Arctic Charr (vegetarian option available), Local (Flat Creek Farms) pork Carnitas (load your own in fresh made tortilla), Chicken Lime Soup, salads, beans, and so much more! We’ll finish the evening with mounds of Sourdough Churros with Chili Chocolate and Dulce de Leche dipping sauces. If you’re gluten free, we have roasted pineapple skewers for you to dip in the dessert sauces. We will use as much locally produced food we can! Come taste what’s happening in the Yukon food scene.
Two festive alcoholic drinks are included with your ticket and dried sourdough starter to take home. Cash bar onsite with local Yukon Brewing beer, Canadian wine and non-alcoholic options as well. North meets South under the sun in the gardens at Well Bread. Ole!
