Friday Photo—Aku at Japengo

Over Labor Day weekend, we were fortunate enough to be invited to attend the third annual Kā‘anapali Fresh festival. And, lucky me, this year I managed to get myself over to Maui before the media welcome dinner or any other festivities got under way! The media welcome dinner was held... Read More

I meant to use the time to write a bunch of blog posts... Read More

We have attended this beautiful observance three times, paying tribute to Shake’s grandmother, his mother and our dear friend. This year, we have been fortunate enough to have seen life come...

Friday Photo—Chocolate for Breakfast

Some time ago, Shake bought me a selection of wonderful Mānoa Chocolate bars. I took some photos of them and we ended up using one of them in the book I worked on last summer, From Kau Kau to Cuisine. The lovely people at Mānoa Chocolate very kindly sent over... Read More
