We love Kupu Maui, our monthly popup dinners. Our process is that we select a farm location for the dinner, or sometimes the farm has a way of selecting us. Our chef, farmer and host take a long walk on the farm. We forage food, see what’s fresh and what we can use. Each of us get inspired and share one word each…that’s how we come up with our 3 word inspiration for each dinner.
But it’s the test kitchen that is the most fun and highly creative process. It’s just 3 friends getting together and playing with food. Finding what works, what doesn’t work and sharing our food ideas. For our August Test Kitchen chef Jenna is off island and we miss her. So our inspirations are CHOCOLATE ~ LAUGHTER ~ JAZZ.
Here in this photo we were listening to jazz and making chocolate extract. It’s made with cacao powder and vodka. This chocolate extract will be used to make the salad dressing. We can’t wait to feed you!
