Beef Teriyaki with Yakisoba Noodles
Sunday, March 24, 2024

Chef Sky Barker was born and raised in the Wood River Valley. He developed a love of food and cooking at an early age and honed his cooking skills at Zou 75 sushi restaurant where he worked for 15 years, as well as CK's and the Valley Club restaurant.

Now the head chef at The Senior Connection, he showed Marie Gallo of Marie's Kitchen how to make a quick easy Beef Teriyaki dish to promote The Senior Connection's annual March for Meals--an effort to raise $50,000 for its Meals on Wheels program.

The Connection is now serving 27,000 meals a year, including its Meals on Wheels, takeout and dining room program, up from 24,000 the year before. Meals on Wheels now serves 16,000 meals to seniors who cannot cook for themselves or get out, up from 13,000 meals last year.
