What you'll do

We'll start off outside in the shade with a Fresh Drinking Coconut each to sip on while we get to know each other and an introduction discussion of coconuts: a brief history, their growth cycle, harvesting methods, nutritional values, versatility of uses and overview of the different stages of nuts we'll be working with. Next you'll have your chance to open your very own coconuts! I'll demonstrate the different methods to safely and efficiently open and process coconuts and work with you one-on-one to learn how to use a variety of special tools, including the machete, coconut key, husker, spatula, and scraper. Once we collect our coconut ingredients, we'll head into our state-of-the-art kitchen and you'll learn a handful of awesome staple recipes including: - Best Coconut MILK in the World - Fermented Probiotic Coconut YOGHURT - Dried Coconut FLOUR - And more... This hands-on kitchen experience is a great opportunity to discover the versatility of such an amazing local ingredient, the nutritional value it has to offer and how you can use this knowledge back home! Finally with the brown shells you'll make your own coconut BOWL to keep and you'll take home your own jars of coconut goodies and a few surprises!

Our class is held in the beautiful Hawaiian community grounds of Anahola Marketplace, both outside under our cute gazebo and inside at our professional kitchen. Attending this experience supports native Hawaiians and local efforts in Hawaiian homelands (similar to Indian Reservations on the continent).
