Hawaii's Farmers & Chefs Events at Foodland with Chef Troy Terorotua!
Our final Hawaii's Farmers & Chefs Event at Foodland Ewa Beach is this Saturday at 11 am and features the talented Chef Troy Terorotua of the popular REAL a Gastropub and the newly opened Kaimuki craft pub, BREW'd. He'll be preparing a Spiked Pork Tenderloin Tacos with Korean Flavors, incorporating Waianae grown MAʻO Organic Farms kale and cilantro.
Chef Terorotua moved to Hawaii in 1997 after working and headlining several of South Florida’s premier restaurants, and was recruited by the legendary Chef Sam Choy to become the corporate chef of his growing restaurant chain. Terorotua helped in the development and opening of five restaurants for Lets Eat Hawaii. As corporate chef, Terorotua traveled exclusively with Chef Choy cooking side by side with many of the world’s best culinary minds such as Emeril Lagasse, Mario Batali, Iron Chef Morimoto, Wolfgang Puck and Charlie Trotter.
Gary Maunakea-Forth of MAʻO Organic Farms will be there as well with his certified organic produce grown in Oahu's Lualei Valley. Fresh from farm to table, you can get MAʻO Organic Farms kale, cilantro, swiss chard and more at the following select Foodland locations: Foodland Farms Aina Haina, Foodland Beretania, Foodland Kailua, Foodland Kapolei, Foodland Market City and Sack N Save Nanakuli.
