chef menus to make you drool

Chef Bio

My food is my art, the truest way I’ve found to combine my loves of travel, hospitality, and wellness into one place.

My menus are as influenced by my California roots as they are by years of backpacking through Southeast Asia and Central America. I love the rustic elegance of wine country-esque meals, as well as the explosions of flavor and texture characterized by Panasian and traditional Mexican cuisine. In short: I am happy to keep it classic – or offer a unique contemporary experience, always featuring the culinary bounty of Maui’s farms and seas.

My training began with a classic Le Cordon Bleu degree, but I also have studied many healing styles of cooking including Holistic Nutrition with Hawthorn University, Ayurvedic Chef Training with Hale Pule, Raw Foods with various chefs, and Wildcrafting with Earth Medicine Institute. I boast almost twenty years in the hospitality industry, working both in the front and back of restaurants, event management, catering, wine industry, festival production, and weddings.

It means a great deal to me to be versatile and open-minded in my cooking and energy, and I love merging healthy cuisine with rich invigorating flavors – creating a new style of health food that doesn’t lack in depth or satisfaction.

If you’re looking for a chef with love, passion, and knowledge to bring an intentional and interactive experience, please contact me. I can’t wait to hear from you.

Seated Meals

I love creating beautiful meals. My food features farm-to-table ingredients with an emphasis on fresh, bright, flavorful, and seasonal produce, fish, poultry, and meat.

My clients are locals as well as visitors to the islands. They love working with me because I am knowledgeable, passionate, personable, and dynamic as a chef. I have preset menus, but I also am happy to play and create custom creations for any palate or diet.

Set menus range from $100-175 per person with a six-person minimum for both classic meals (dinner & brunch) as well as plant-based meals (dinner & brunch). Custom menus are available for an hourly rate. Please inquire to learn more!

Retreat Catering

As a yoga teacher, holistic nutritionist, and ayurvedic chef, I love creating nourishing farm-to-table menus for yoga retreats, coaching retreats, or any intentional offering. I also offer mentorship and community for other like-minded retreat chefs through my referral business More Pleaze.

My retreat menus range from simple to elegant, from family-style to plated. Vegan, raw, gluten-free, and paleo are all available. Let me support you in making your retreat perfect.

Packages begin at $27pp/meal with a ten-person minimum and multi-day booking. Service charge and tax are extra. Please inquire to learn more!

Meal Prep

I offer meal prep for busy families, professionals, and couples. I love working with visiting families and helping them to have a perfect stress-free vacation.

Meal prep is a custom service and can range from me serving family-style food for families, to me leaving your fridge packed, or I can create custom pre-portioned meals for those with specific diets. As a trained holistic nutrition consultant, I’m happy to cater to custom diets.

Prices begin at $450/visit, with discounts given for kama’aina. Food costs are billed separately. I also have set menus available for vacationing families for ease, with costs beginning at $35 per person/meal.

Weddings & Cermonies

I love weddings and elopements! I have packages available for both plant-based and animal protein-centric wedding offerings. The weddings I tend to work with are non-traditional and have ranged from intentional vegan weddings to festival-inspired dance parties to elopements to LGBTQ+ anti-establishment ceremonies.

Menus available plated, family-style, passed, or buffet. I am not a traditional wedding caterer, but I can coordinate rentals and service staff if needed. The ideal wedding party size is 20-65 guests and the venue must have a kitchen onsite.

Prices begin at $65/guest for catering services. Service, rentals, decor, planning, and front-of-house staff are not included.
