meet the chef

My family's love of food has spanned three generations and two continents. Coming from a family of chefs and restaurateurs, the kitchen is where I am most comfortable and inspired.


I consider a clean kitchen and a basket of fresh provisions my palette on which to create beauty. I am so grateful to share my gift with visitors and residents of the beautiful Hawai'ian Islands.  I look forward to cooking for you and your 'ohana.
