#89 on Kauai, Hawaii - At the Princeville Resort!
chef Todd Oldham is more than an expert gourmet chef, he’s
also a drummer, and thus utilizes his musical experience
in driving rhythms to make his kitchen create dishes in
Todd has as is backdrop the unbelievably gorgeous Princeville
Resort, located on the Nepali Coast in Kauai! This is a
breathtaking spot, sitting right on the precipice of the
ocean cliffs and looking out across the deep, blue Pacific!
this episode, Todd prepares a marvelous Heart of Palm Salad
with goat cheese from Louisa Wooten’s Kunana Goat
Dairy Farms! Heart of Palm was considered a famine food
prior it to becoming all the rage as a gourmet ingredient-
because to chop down a palm tree that bears the fruit of
coconut meat and milk, people must have been super hungry!
Chef Todd shows how to take the whole heart of Palm and
cut into manageable pieces, how to boil it to bring it to
perfect softness, and then how to create a truly fantastic
and light appetizer. Of course having the local farmers
present who make the fresh Goat Cheese and Organic Greens
makes all the difference in the world!
Chef Oldham makes a Pan Seared Hawaiian Snapper with Finger
Potatoes, fresh Organic Greens from Phil Davies Organic
Farm, and a Japanese Mustard Sauce that is full of flavor!
Here is a dish that crackles with freshness, the white,
flakey Snapper is juicy and succulent and the greens are
vibrant with color, flavor and bursting with vitamins!
this episode we also hitch a ride on Smith’s Boat
Tours, riding up the pristine rivers to the Grotto and waterfall
that have etched a perfectly divine place in nature! On
the boat trip you won’t want to miss our host Bruce
and Lena getting their personal ‘Hula’ lesson
from the native musicians and dancers who guide the boat
trip up and down the river banks.
