A hands-on, collaborative cooking class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine and beer.

Aloha! We can almost smell the pikake blooms and feel the warm ocean breeze on our face with the mere thought of this menu. We are excited to welcome a guest instructor, Shannon Hayashi, to our classroom to teach this menu close to his heart, having grown up in Hawaii. This menu features iconic Hawaiian foods, particularly those featured at celebrations. Though we won't have any hula dancers, we hope to inspire future travels to our Pacific state and a delightful conversation over the dinner table.
