Local Food, Local History, and Fun with a Local Celebrity Chef
, Aug 2018
Had this food tour booked for four on Monday. On Sunday afternoon watched TV cooking show with local chef (Lania) and helper. To our surprise Lania , the chef ,met us to lead our food tour. We spent several hours being toured around Honolulu sampling great local treats and learning their importance to the islands. We spent time in Foodland getting the scoop on all kinds of local fruits and vegetables that were new to us. At lunch he took us to a local restaurant and filled the table with local dishes and explained the ingredients and preparation with the admonition to try everything.We did and were truly amazed at the flavors we would have missed. Along the way we got a history lesson when Lania was being stopped for an autograph. In short --a wonderful experience enjoyed by all with a true local who was easy going and proud to show off his home and cuisine.
Lots of fun! We got to experience real Hawaiian food and because it was at the beginning of the trip, it was even better! Poke is amazing! My son ate loco moco all over Hawaii. Thank you for showing us the real Hawaii!
