Aloha and welcome to Farm Cook Kauai!
This site is dedicated to sharing with people how I have been inspired to live life to the fullest by engaging in the simple, cultural traditions of farming and cooking.
A novice backyard gardener, I moved to Kauai years ago seeking farming 11 experience and knowledge. I worked at a goat dairy for three years in Kilauea and my love for farming developed into a way of life I never expected. A way of life that continuously teaches me about the land, my physical and emotional health, people, spirituality, and love.
After leaving the goat dairy I re-entered the culinary arena. I previously worked in cafes and health food stores as a cook and baker. In addition, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Geography. Through farming, I have been able to combine my education and work experience synthesizing environmental science, food production and culinary arts. I realize on a deep level that without proper nourishment I cannot optimally thrive as an individual or function as a healthy member of society. This realization developed slowly over time from eating the food I have grown. The more of my own food I eat, the better I feel and the more aware I become on many http://www.cheapambienpriceonline.com levels. Between growing and cooking my own food at home and working with locally-resourced food almost every day my relationship with food changes. I approach preparing and consuming food with a sense of gratitude and appreciation for it’s ability to sustain all life.
On this site I will post recipes I have experimented with and enjoyed over the years from the food produced in a small 10 x 20 ft garden plot. I will also post gardening how-to’s and tips that I have gleaned from experience and from some of the most knowledgeable farmers on this island. Links to some of my favorite websites will also be found here.
A word about my recipes: I don’t typically follow recipes strictly. The recipes I post are only guidelines. I taste everything as I cook because I don’t believe a recipe will produce the exact same flavor every single time. I think every person’s palette is slightly different and I encourage people to experiment with recipes to experience the creative process of cooking. My approach is to use the freshest ingredients possible, lots of herbs, aromatics, and classic techniques. Please feel free to contact me for any further questions or inquiries regarding our personal chef and catering services.
Aloha and thank you for visiting!
