In July 2011, Alaska Seafood travelled to Alaska with TV chef Phil Vickery, and ITV for a 10 day filming trip around South East Alaska, visiting Juneau, Hoonah, and Petersburg . On the trip, two 8-10 minute VTs were filmed, which were presented by Phil Vickery and aired on ITV’s This Morning.
The first show aired on Monday 9th January 2012 and the second on Monday 16th January. The first VT explored Alaska as a centre for sustainable fishing and showed Phil visiting a traditional Alaska salmon cannery where he cooked up a delicious recipe using wild Alaska Sockeye salmon. The second VT saw Phil head to the city of Petersburg to catch and cook some more original recipes using wild Alaska halibut.
20 simple Alaska Seafood recipes were cooked and styled by a member of ASMI and photographed by Steve Lee in scenic locations around Juneau, Hoonah and Petersburg during the ITV trip to Alaska. A new recipe book ‘Wild cooking with Sustainable Alaska Seafood’ was developed, showcasing a selection of simple recipes using Alaska Seafood products, as well as scenic and reportage shots. The book will be distributed at events and mailed out to journalists and industry members.
