September 2020 Update: We love our Roccbox Pizza oven and as it turns out it is ideal for roasting your tomatoes and bell peppers. To celebrate the new flavors we ahva new video for you. Enjoy! This soup started out as gazpacho, at some point in our cooking past. Maybe it could still be called […]
My kids love dumplings. Every time I make soup it is expected that I will make dumplings. For me it is a random thing, experimenting with different proportions, different flours, an add this, add that kind of thing. They always turn out different, but they are always a success. I think my personal favorite is […]
One day Katy suggested we make grilled corn as an end of summer treat. For me as a Central European used to actual cold winters, the concept of “end of summer” in California is slightly weird. But so be it; it’s a great reason to celebrate and everybody likes corn. We’re always trying to teach […]
Today it was my turn to make dinner. Originally I planned to make Jamie Oliver’s incredible “tray bake”, but I had some ripe plums peeking at me so I decided to try something different. A friend of mine makes this amazing Moroccan chicken, and that inspired me to use these plums as a base for […]
If you are reading this you either made it or are planning to make it into paradise. Lucky you. Lucky us, because thanks to the generosity of my in-laws, this is the fifth time we’ve been here. There are a lot of fun activities to enjoy or even hurt yourself, but because this is a food blog, let’s talk food.
The first time we visited I was a bit paranoid, because Maui is not cheap and I wanted to avoid tourist traps. Also please keep in mind that I am not a professional food critic and in many cases my family disagreed with me, so this is a very personal guide. On the other hand, I am known to have a good tasting palate (thanks to my coffee tasting practice) and I am very demanding when it comes to providing quality for the price. In my case it is connected with my passion for finding and providing high quality coffee and I demand the same from others. Ok, sometimes I can be a jerk about this. I understand that many people go to Maui and are ready to splurge, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing, etc. I am listing only places we visited and experienced. There are a few we really wanted to try, but did not have the chance yet, Like the Shark Pit food truck. I love this chef’s mission statement. Perhaps next time.
