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!

Linda’s kitchen is stunning, her recipes delicious, and her stories priceless. We came to learn a bit of cooking, but left with so much more. I can’t recommend this class enough for foodies that want a uniquely intimate culinary experience they can’t get anywhere else on Oahu.

Linda is one of the most interesting, energetic people I've ever met and you won't regret doing this experience just for the fun of listening to her stories. Linda hosts this at her house, which is outfitted with an industrial kitchen, a porch with a stunning view of Diamond Head, and a half dozen pets including a large pig named Bacon. I'm not sure "cooking class" quite captures the experience -- this was a whirlwind tour of preparing several foods (braised beef, sea bass, crab cakes, butter mochi) in Hawaiian and Japanese style. The whole group (6 of us) participated in making each item, with Linda delegating tasks (chop this, dice that, sear this, etc.) like the professional chef she is and talking the whole group through the cooking process. She also explained various decisions that went into the cooking -- which items could be substituted, the ways she'd customized her recipes, and where to buy ingredients would make the cooking much easier. She handled the hardest and most error-prone parts herself (mostly timing-related) to make sure nothing went *too* badly wrong and at the end we enjoyed the four-course meal we'd prepared as a group.

A wonderful experience! I’ve done lots of cooking classes but this one was the best! In addition to the great food, the recipes seem like ones we can easily recreate at home.
