I always wanted to be a contributing author to edible Hawaiian Islands and this dream came true with the launch party that happened in early 2014 at Taste.
The name of my featured article is Eat Well, Live Well: A Game Plan for Health
The photography (and actually everything) in this issue is really spectacular. So professional! All the articles are a very interesting read, with the entire content focusing both on health and sourcing local.
The party itself was a lot of fun in the pop-up restaurant space Taste in Kaka’ako. I provided vegan brown rice sushi for pupus (appetizers). Here is what people were saying about the day…
Here I am seeing the article in print for the very first time.
That’s Chef Lee Ann Wong behind me who was featured on Bravo’s Top Chef in the background nibbling my “sushi butts” as she called them, as I sliced everything for the other guests in attendance. Next to me is Dania Katz, the brilliant woman in charge of the magazine (and who organized the launch party).
This photo (above) means a lot to me because it’s from Jennifer Hee of Kale’s Deli who is a brilliant vegan baker and chef herself! Anyone on the east side of the island, go check out their menu.
