Tasting Kauai offers farm to fork food tours designed to connect people with the farmers and chefs of Kauai. The Garden Island offers an abundance of delicious food and produce, grown and made by people who infuse their creations with the spirit aloha.

Marta Lane is Kauai’s only full-time food writer and her husband Daniel is a professional photographer whose images accompany her articles. Marta wanted to share the best with visitors and residents, so she created three exclusive tours in partnership with farmers, chefs and artisans she has come to trust.

These tours are a playful, educational edible experiences that are based on the seasons. Yes, Kauai has seasons! As a small, family owned business, Tasting Kauai is able to add a personal touch to create memorable experiences infused with aloha. These unique tours can’t be experienced anywhere else on Kauai.
