What item do you love to prepare from your menu?

The Kona Kampachi


What dish is the “must order” thing on the menu?

The Opakaka


What dish uses products / produce / proteins from Maui?

We have quite a few..there’s something from starters to desserts that have locally grown or raised products.


What ingredient is a must have for you and why?

Sweet Maui Onion because it can be sautéed for a savory characteristic or left raw for its sweetness.


One tip from your kitchen: (Any how to, timesaver, sanitation, or preparation tip).

When preparing a flambé, such as The Strawberries Panzini, spinning the glass while the cognac is on fire will distribute the heat evenly throughout the glass and prevent it from breaking.
