    Steven Shaw

    Aloha. Like so many of you I join you in saying I have not been posting for quite some time here. I'm not sure why. But what I do know is the shock of reading this terribly tragic news brought back all the years I did participate. It was so nice to see names from the past with their lovely tributes to Steven. God Bless him and blessings to his wife, son and family and many friends. I never met him personally but we had several emails back and forth about many things and one of them my good friend Alan Richman. He had posted about his dinner at Alan's home. The world is sadly missing a really wonderful, innovative, kind, knowledgeable pioneer and to his beloved credit so many of us were united in community then and now. RIP Steven, Mekealoha Pumehana.
  2. What a wonderful post! Epic night and day for you!
  3. I didn't watch this week. Did we lose Ippy? He has a picture in our paper today helping at a school and it said he is opening a restaurant called "The Dancing Pig" in Waimea on the Big Island where he's from.
  4. A friend of mine was able to raise a little over his goal of $11,000 via Indie-gogo for his smoker. His place is up and running and doing fabulously. He purchased some other really great equipment at the supply houses and some great used items.
  5. I really love my Le Creuset tagine everything comes out beautifully!
  6. I just got some beautiful fresh green peppercorns. They are easy to work with and amazingly flavorful. Tonight I am roasting a chicken with 2 lemons and will put crushed peppercorns along with ground black pepper and sea salt all over the skin and inside the cavity with the lemons. This is an old Marcella Hazan recipe that I love. There is a farmer Frankie Sekiya that grew them and sold them at the Kapiolani Community College farmer's market on Saturday.
  7. Zaratez is now only at the HFBF farmer's markets. Get in the car and drive to Heeia Pier Deli & General Store in Kaneohe, amazing food, if someone delivers a fish straight from the bay it's on the menu if not, not. Great ulu mac salad, guava chicken and lots of daily specials. Prima in Kailua is very good. Nico's reopened last month with a full sit down restaurant/bar same location at Pier 38. Town on Waialae is very good and kid friendly. I just had the most wonderful meal at Roy's Waikiki. The chef there has his own page of specials from starters to entree's that are inventive, full of flavor and magic. They like kids there too. I live in Kaneohe and can attest (although I hardly ever go) Haleiwa Joe's is a magnet for locals who want a place for birthday/anniversary on our side for dinner they are not open for lunch.
  8. We had the recent festival here on Oahu. Co-Chaired by Roy and Alan (Yamaguchi & Wong) it was a wonderful weekend full of education, food, wine & fun. Here are some pictures. The "Streets of Asia with Morimoto & Friends" Thursday night kicked off the events. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2260183836224.2122525.1597267225&l=9c31852fdf&type=1 I won tickets to the Morimoto event and had already purchased the "From Mauka to Makai" event which was the last one on Saturday night. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2263870248382.2122658.1597267225&l=0bbb598a67&type=1 Aloha & A hui hou!

    Dinner! 2011

    Sorry, no pictures. But, I had a local spaghetti squash (I'd roasted the whole thing 3 days ago) had the second half left, with 3 kinds of cherry tomatoes, regular tomato, sautee'd baby swiss chard (MA'O Farms), capers, feta cheese. Then I had some chicken breasts in panko fried in olive oil over the top it was really quite nice!
  10. I know this is late but I really enjoyed Dutch Henry and Steltzner.
  11. Mostly I steep it in an acrylic pitcher with water from my fridge line. Usually Celestial Seasons of some type, generally the fruit varieties. I slice lots of fruit in it to make it look pretty as I always have 2 pitchers at every party I host for the designated driver's and those who just like iced tea! It's always a hit.
  12. I too was wondering about Luna's. There is nothing like that here at all ;-( We do have one place "La Raza Mercado" but they do not carry fresh tortillas. I was drooling reading that post. Your meals have been making me very jealous! Keep up the good work and eating!
  13. i like that! I bake dozens and dozens of dog treats and give them to my favorite restaurants at the holidays. Everyone has been thrilled as they can take something home to their beloved pooch who often is without their owner much of the time. I've also made yarn lei for dogs that have been well received.
  14. Aloha! Been enjoying reading your posts! I just read all 3 pages at once as I am holed up in bed and hope to get out by Saturday! I've been making some great meals one handed as I had a nasty fall in the kitchen Sunday night. I look forward to your Chicago visit. I am from there and had a wonderful time last month. I hope your weather is better than mine was! But it's such a great city it doesn't matter what the weather - well maybe not horrendous blizzards or tornadoes! You probably will but I love the Hancock Tower Signature Lounge for a nice drink. We really enjoyed Sprout twice so far so maybe you might too. Looking forward to your further adventures! Aloha & A hui hou!
  15. I went for the first time and had a wonderful day. I could not go more than Saturday but got there at 10:00 (via a big bus from the stop at the Hancock Tower.) We were shocked at the line for Starbuck's when there was amazing coffee available from a few booths that was delicious. We immediately did the cheeses from WI and the wine booth. We enjoyed the America pavillion and met some great pork farmers and seafood purveyors. We went primarily for the food truck pavilion and were not disappointed in the displays and information. We had a seminar "The Road Ahead for Food Trucks" that day and it was of great interest and full of information. We enjoyed walking around seeing all of the food items, eating so much delicious things and meeting some amazing people as well. It was a great experience, I hope to go again next year. After all of the crowd at McCormick Place it was great to go up to the rooftop deck at our hotel which was "closed' but the concierge told us how to get up there rather than the normal way. Cocktails ensued and the NRA tote bag was a great vehicle to take up everything we needed!
