Everyone learned a great deal at last night’s Taste Education Mixology event. Mahalo nui loa to Melissa Panzarini with Maui Cocktail Catering, Shonna Pinheiro with OCEAN Vodka, Jane and Barry with Mauicello, Chris Speere with the Maui Culinary Academy and all the Slow Foodies who made it happen.
The event was a fundraiser for the Lahainaluna Agricultural Department Youth At Risk program held at Archipelago Maui, hosted by our own Dania Katz of Edible Hawaiian Islands. The food was amazing!

Good times at Penguini in Pa‘ia last night, when we gathered to surprise Dania for her 50th birthday, which is actually on Thanksgiving. Great job, Charlene for engineering this, and thanks Melissa for hosting us! She really was surprised!
The truth is IHOP was unfairly targetted. True, you probably don’t want to go to a restaurant where the eggs are products of such horrible practices, but the real truth is it’s not limited to them. The eggs you get at the market could be products of the same practices.
And it’s not just the eggs. Do you really know where all your food comes from?
We had a great day at our first fundraiser and membership drive at Whole Foods Maui in Kahului yesterday. The event was scheduled for 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and we sold out around 1:30 p.m.
Our menu consisted of two plate lunches, a grilled Maui Cattle Co. beef burger or a salmon burger served with homemade asian coleslaw, sweet potato fries and a beverage.
Special thanks to Chris and Becky Speere for bringing help in the form of two student chefs from the Maui Culinary Academy, to Tylun Pang, Executive Chef of The Fairmont Kea Lani and to Roxanne Tiffin, owner of Kula Fields for helping us make this a success.
During Harvest Day at the South Maui Sustainability Kihei Elementary School Garden project, Chef Nio Kindla talks about teaching the kids what food really is.
It’s not just us. Jamie Oliver shows how the kids in his Food Revolution series didn’t know anything about where food comes from either.
