This event marks our second anniverary as the Big Island international food group gathered for another spectacular feast. What has started as a low key group of foodies getting together with themed cooking events has blossumed to a full fledged non-profit group, adding on educational programs to our gatherings, monthly contributions to our local food basket and even volunteering there with group sorting and packing work. We hope to influence and help others in need with the community and will be doing more outreach and supporting scholarship funds or other educational programs through our efforts.
This just shows that a collective gathering of like minds can make an impact outside of simple potlucks, but collectively can make a contribution to our community.
We made special placemats filled with photos of previous cooking gatherings from the past including our french, filipino, tapas to our first wine tasting and pupu party.
Tonight we recreated a chinese banquet to celebrate the first event gathering which was a chinese theme and the selections ranged from lemon chicken, to hot and sour soup to pot stickers completely made from scratch.
This event also marks a special aloha to our friend Kathleen who has just recovered from a major car trauma and was here to celebrate her recovery and enjoy the festivities.
.....As you can see the food line started up early and the plates were easily filled up.
Whats an anniversary party without having it at the beach in Hawaii, these are the sous chefs that make each and every event special. It was a special night and the photo shows how wonderful each sous chef is to this group.
I thank the sous chefs who have made a tireless effort to make each and every event special, aloha to you.
