The Stars Come Out at Flavors by the Bay

Posted on December 03, 2014 by admin

What more could you ask for than a beautiful evening, the clink of wine glasses and the soothing sounds of Holunape drifting out across the lawn overlooking Kaneohe Bay? We enjoyed a great evening helping out at a fundraising event hosted by Kama'aina Kids at He‘eia State Park on June 27. This first annual event was held to raise funds to rebuild the park’s pavilion that had to be demolished after it was damaged by winds. Flavorful Evening Tiki’s Grill and Bar was one of a dozen of Honolulu’s finest restaurants that came out to support the event. Since the theme of the evening revolved around the bay we served Big Island Abalone and Kahuku Sea Asparagus Spoons with Uni Butter. It was a big hit and it’s always rewarding to showcase our local producers. A Unique Partnership When we were approached by the event organizers, Kama'aina Kids, back in the spring, we were familiar with some of their programs running day care and camps around the island but when they shared with us their goals for the park we agreed to help. Back a few years ago the st... Read more

Wai-TIKI with Leeward Culinary Arts

Posted on November 14, 2014 by admin

For this blog post I have some very exciting news about the Leeward Community College Culinary Arts Program special dinner titled Wai-TIKI that I recently participated in. The evening featured a five course dinner with wine pairings by Chuck Furuya and some incredibly creative work by LCC’s culinary stars of tomorrow. A lot of preparation went into getting ready for this evening and I can tell you that it was awesome. Linda Yamada, David Millen and Don Maruyama, the chef instructors at LCC did a fantastic job preparing the students. I’ve known Don going back to when I started at Roy’s in 1992 where he was a sous chef. I’ve known Linda for a long time too and done many charity events with LCC over the years but this was the first time I had created the menu for the special dinner that they feature once each semester. Preparing the Menu I put together some really great tasting dishes with lots of fresh local ingredients of course and some preparations that I thought would also present a learning opportunity for the students. We made Kauai Shri... Read more
