Wild salmon have lived in the pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest for thousands of years. The rich, creamy taste of wild salmon that all of us around the world have come to crave can be attributed to their high oil content. Because of their long spawning run in which they may migrate thousands of miles, these fish fatten up for their voyage, giving them great flavor, succulent texture and lots of omega-3s.
What special ingredient makes pizza, pastas, paninis, calzones, grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers and nachos so good?
It’s the CHEESE!
Cheese is so versatile in that you can eat it in so many different ways and it can be delicious any way you slice it, dice it or melt it!
Similar to the wide varieties and complexities of wine, cheese can fall into unique categories based on the texture and the process for which it’s made. Here are a few cheese ... more »
Take it from me, the key to a great sandwich starts with great bread. Fortunately, you can find world renowned bread from the original La Brea Bakery right here at home in Hawaii. La Brea Bakery first opened its doors in Los Angeles in 1989, and today you can still enjoy the same bread made by the original starter Chef Nancy Silverton anytime. Just stop by any of our Foodland locations and select from a wide variety of delicious breads. Here's what we have available ... more »
This month marks the start of one of my favorite programs at Foodland – Give Aloha. In many ways, it seems like just yesterday that our marketing team came together to brainstorm ideas of how to appropriately honor our late founder, Sully. To us, a program to support the community was the logical choice as Sully was not only known for his support of local non-profits, but he had always instilled in us that we “have a responsibility to support the community that supports us.”
The Julia Roberts film is a feast for the eyes, the senses, and the heart. See it and then go to a great dinner feast!
I love the scene in the film in which Liz (Julie Roberts) has lunch with a group of her new friends in Italy. She orders their meal and revels in the beauty of the exotic foreign language as it slips off her tongue. When the Italians tell Liz, about the Italian art of "La dolce far niente" - the sweetness of doing nothing... Liz embraces the pleasure of good ... more »
Now that our site has been up for a couple of weeks, I’m sure that the majority of you guys have been able to checkout the Weekly Ad. It’s updated every Wednesday and has a lot to offer in terms of savings. Another great page that offers savings is our Coupons page provided by Coupons.com. The other day, before I went shopping, I went over to the coupons page just to see what was available with no particular items in mind.
I know that a lot of people here in Hawaii, like myself, are really active and busy. I don’t know about you guys, but a lot of times I find myself not having much time to eat and always grabbing something on the go. It’s not easy to find food that’s quick, and tasty, but I know that I can always rely on our deli to prepare something that’s delicious and can be eaten without wasting time. Here are just a few of my Foodland Deli favorites:
I always enjoy seeing a project that our team has worked hard on come to life. And so it was with great excitement and anticipation that I viewed our new website this morning. While it is still amazing to me at some levels that so much information about companies like ours is now just a click away, such accessibility sure does make things easier than when we had to flip through telephone books, cookbooks, newspapers, and more to find what we needed!
Today at the office I cleaned up a mock-up arrangement we’re doing for an awards dinner next week. The flowers were two weeks old so I finally had to toss them in the rubbish but I saved a happy sunflower from the centerpieces and put it on my desk. I had to take pictures to illustrate how just one simple flower can add so much cheer – that’s the magic of flower power! As I sit here working on my laptop and looking at my monitor I feel like the sunflower is smiling at me and….well it ... more »
