Earlier this year, chef Todd Mohr joined Dan and I on our North Shore Kauai Food Tour. Chef Todd travels  the world, looking for great food, and teaches online cooking classes. We thought we’d share his experience with you, even though some of the stops are no longer on our tour.

We are pleased to announce a new partnership with The St. Regis Princeville. Beginning Aug. 25, the luxury resort will be one of six stops on our intimate North Shore Kauai Food Tour. It’s pretty amazing because while enjoying a private tasting, guests will have the opportunity to meet the resort’s top chefs and ask burning foodie questions! Each week, our guests will gaze at a world-class view of Hanalei Bay and Mount Makana, while exploring a different aspect of The St. Regis Princeville, including:

Over the past two years our food tours have enabled us to meet some amazing people from all over the world. We have watched our guests’ eyes light up as they taste just-picked pineapples, noting that they tasted nothing like the store-bought kind — which are picked before they’re ripe so they can be shipped long distances. On our tours, we have had guests of all ages and it was delightful to watch children stuff their mouths with bright red mountain apples as seniors were invigorated by the fresh tropical air and lush landscaping. Our guide Kai led them through the orchard and each person connected deeply with him, each other, the moment and the food.
