Maui is a food mecca. Fresh produce, bounty from the sea and land, farmers markets and some of the best restaurants in the world hold fast on our paradise in the Pacific. There is no better way to share our love and passion for food, then sharing what we like to eat, and how we make it. MauiTime asked our island chefs to let us in on the secrets that oil their kitchen machines, and to tell us how to prepare their favorite dishes.
