Tasting Kauai

Happy Aloha Friday! We had an exceptional week and hope you did too. Last Sunday, our article “Meat of the operation” ran in The Garden Island newspaper. While touring the facility, we were happy to learn that the cows are 100 percent grass-fed, with no antibiotics or hormones. Thanks to it being available at Times/Big Save, beef is now back on our family menu. I just can’t buy the corn-fed, factory-farmed stuff. I made a wonderful beef stew this week and will share the recipe soon. I want to make it one more time to get it absolutely perfect.

Last Wednesday, our article “Spring cleaning with juice” ran in The Garden Island newspaper. This is the third cleanse I have done, and I have to say it’s the easiest. Plus, the juice at Kauai Juice Company is extremely delicious. I buy single bottles to drink with dinner. Last night, as I took a sip of  Mintacolada I tried to find one word to describe the flavor. I could taste mint and pineapple but the word that came to me was juicy. Sounds silly, but the flavors are so mouth-watering, balanced and vibrant that juicy is the best description.

Tasting Kauai

Happy Aloha Friday! We hope you had an exceptional week. Last Sunday, our article “Safely preserving the harvest” ran in The Garden Island newspaper. If you are a Tasting Kauai Facebook fan, you saw all of my pictures from the Hawaii Master Food Preservers class. I had a lot of fun learning how to safely preserve food and writing about it. Last Wednesday, our article “Hanalei’s Edible Opportunist” ran in The Garden Island newspaper. If you haven’t experienced one of Justin Smith’s dinners, you should. It’s great for residents who want a fun date as well as visitors who want a unique experience. Continue Reading →
