Aloha Summer! Kickoff Party!!

Saturday, June 22

Kick off summer with a taste of the islands! Join us for a fun-filled cooking class that’s a tropical getaway from the ordinary, as we explore the bold flavors and vibrant spirit of Hawaiian cuisine!  Get ready to hang loose with our summer kickoff party cooking class! We’ll start with a taste of the islands’ favorite street food, Hawaiian chicken kebabs, served with a side of tropical flair. Then, we’ll dive into Kalua pig tacos, where the magic of slow-cooked pork and crispy tortillas will transport you to the shores of Oahu. And to keep things fresh and light, we’ll create a refreshing Mixed Greens salad with a zesty guava lime vinaigrette. And for dessert, we’ll indulge in a rich and creamy chocolate Haupia pie, a classic Hawaiian treat that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!  Remember that the aloha spirit is all about sharing love, laughter, and good food with friends. So go ahead, spread the aloha vibes at your next gathering, and mahalo for joining us on this flavorful journey!
