When you’re catching as many Salmon in a day as our guests are, eating becomes a big deal. Consider it a training table of sorts as our customers show up ready for a warm plate of culinary delight between bouts of fish catching carnage on the river. So it’s with great excitement that we get to announce a very important addition to the AKSA staff for 2014.
David Amir will be taking over lead chef duties this year at Alaska’s’ best fishing camp. David comes to us as a very accomplished chef and is certain to bring our guests culinary experience in the bush to new heights.
After a four year stint cooking for the French military, David moved on to study cooking at Écôle hôtelière Arles in France. Upon completion of his formal culinary studies, David moved on, and through the ranks of a cooking career that started him in the Bistros of France, has landed him in Seattle, Washington. In addition to his lead chef responsibilities at Alaska King Salmon Adventures, David currently teaches French cooking to private clientele and is a cooking instructor at South Seattle Community College.
Trained as a saucier, David prefers to cook with the seasons and believes, “There is a time and place for every dish depending on mood and even the weather.” When we asked him why a summer in the bush on the Nushagak River sounded like a great idea, David responded with, ” I love fishing and Alaska has always been a dream of mine.”
Like David, our customers dream of Alaska and with the thoughts of world-class fishing and flavors of fine culinary fare.
See you on the Nush!
