Aloha!

I have created these classes out of my own passion for food and my love of cooking. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 35 years and I feel as if this is where it has lead me, to create this experience for you! I travel extensively and my favorite experience in every country was to take a cooking class in that area. I found the best ones were in a local home because it felt more intimate to be able to experience how they live, cook and eat in their homeland. I believe you will feel the aloha here and walk away with the confidence to make these dishes back home!

If you have any questions feel free to reach out - Tory, Naomi and Jayce from my reservations team are happy to help!

You’ll love this personal cooking class. Everyone participates. You get history as well as cooking tips. Great cultural experience. Great lunch on her patio.

This experience absolutely exceeded all my expectations. Linda is beyond knowledgeable of food and so friendly and interesting to talk to. I now learnt these amazing recipes I will for sure replicate for my friends and met really cool people in the meantime. I 100% advice this experience to more people!

If you are visiting Oahu and love food this is a must! Linda was phenomenal and this was definitely one of the best experiences we had on our trip. Linda was extremely kind, funny and a great instructor. She invites you into her beautiful home and teaches a fun hands on class. I would absolutely recommend you book this experience with her. We will again the next time we’re around!

My husband and I came to Linda's cooking class on the last day of our trip and we enjoyed every moment of it! We initially felt a bit shy but Linda is a wonderful host and makes you feel very comfortable. She has a great personality and not only taught us how to make Hawaiian food, she also taught us some Hawaiian words. We are excited to host a dinner party of our own using the recipes Linda taught us. We will also definitely be back to try other classes in the future!

Linda was an absolute pleasure and her class was one of the highlights of our vacation. I am not an experienced cook but Linda did a great job walking us through the different ingredients and dishes. She is a great teacher and I feel like I learned a lot about Hawaiian food and cooking in general. She tells great stories and explains the heritage of the dish we were cooking. She even taught us some Hawaiian Pidgin vocabulary. We had a great class and at the end we get to sit down and enjoy all the food we prepared. She was so nice to print out the recipes for us to take home as well. Overall a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend if you are on Oahu.

We had a great experience at Linda’s! Loved that everyone in the group played a part to make the food so it felt like a truly communal experience. The poke was so fresh and the whole menu was delicious and feels like things we would make again when home. Her sunset views and adorable pets were delightful.
