Private Event: Hawaiian Cooking Workshop April 26

This is a private event open to spouses and guests of those attending the American Board of Family Medicine Conference. 

Enjoy an afternoon of Hawaiian Style cooking at Monkeypod Jam! We will spend three hours exploring the cuisine and history of the Sandwich Islands through this hands-on cooking class taught by Chef Beatrice Ricart. 

Each student will be welcomed with a refreshing White Pineapple Spritzer. As a class, we will make two pupus (appetizers) including Ahi Poke and Vegetarian Poke. For our main dishes, we will create a refreshing Kauai Salad topped with Kauai Papaya Seed Dressing, Mashed Kauai Grown Purple Sweet Potato with Coconut Milk and Garlic Kauai Shrimp. Lastly, guests will make Haupia, a local coconut dessert. 

There should be enough to take back to husbands and friends attending the conference.  

Date/Time: Sunday, April 26th, 2020, 10 - 1 pm

Location: The Monkeypod Jam Shop, 2-3687 Kamualii HWY, Next to the Lawai Post Office

Workshop Includes: Hands-on, personal instruction, all needed supplies, and recipes. Light pupus, beverages, and lunch will be served.

At Monkeypod Jam, we preserve not only the abundance of fruits and vegetables but also the community and heritage of our island. Preserving Hawaii Workshops are offered to our local community and island visitors looking to experience the various methods used to preserve the bounty of Kauai's agriculture. These workshops are more intimate than many of our other offerings. The small class size enables each student to focus on the produce and techniques shared.
