Eat and Live ‘PONO’ Ron Panzo of LuLu’s in Lahaina along with Delvina and Vernon Rosa brought Nalu’s to Kihei. Nalu is the Hapa-Hawaiian phrase meaning to “go with the flow.” With that mindset the owners of Nalu’s have made it their focus to source the best that Hawaii has to offer, combining local flavors, and the freshest island ingredients available. Nalu’s mission is to serve “ono” (mouthwatering) food for our guests’ enjoyment. So come on in to “Nalu’s” and go with the flow.”

CHEF STORY

Chef Geno Sarmiento

Nicks Fishmarket • Sarento's on the Beach • SON'Z Steakhouse • Manoli's Pizza Company

Geno Sarmiento, Corporate Executive Chef Tri-Star Restaurant Group

C

hef Geno oversees all four of Tri-Star Group’s restaurants on Maui: Nick’s Fishmarket Maui, Sarento’s on the Beach, Son’z Steakhouse and Manoli’s Pizza Company. Chef Sarmiento handpicks all of the restaurants’ chefs and is the mastermind behind the menus. Not only does Chef Sarmiento bring his culinary expertise and creativity to the restaurants, he also exudes compassion and sincerity. President and CEO Aaron Placourakis says “Geno’s knowledge, experience, professionalism and zest for life are key ingredients in our restaurants’ philosophies. He fits in perfectly with our family.” Chef Geno started with the company twenty two years ago in the pantry at Aaron’s Atop the Ala Moana. Since then, he’s learned

all aspects of the culinary field, not only cooking but managing the kitchen as well. He opened two of the Maui restaurants as Executive Chef: Sarento’s on the Beach and Son’z Steakhouse. While spearheading the culinary efforts at Son’z Steakhouse, they won numerous accolades and awards from top 10 restaurants in Maui to peoples choice awards. The latest venture of Chef Geno’s career is the opening of a family focused restaurant called Manoli’s Pizza Company. Manoli’s features organically grown produce, gluten free menu items and sustainable products. Chef Sarmiento’s philosophy is straight forward: support the small farmers and agriculture in the islands when creating exciting, innovative menu items for our guests. It can’t get any simpler than that. (see ad page 7 )

Aloha!

FROM THE PUBLISHER

H

aving grown up in Hawaii I have observed the many changes from dining to shopping and now, spas. I thoroughly enjoy trying them all and each included here represents the best of Maui’s offerings and each one is unique. Maui is such a treat in so many ways and that’s especially true for those who appreciate delicious dining options. Maui's restaurants feature top chefs and talents from all corners of the globe and have found it impossible to resist the beauty and “Aloha Spirit” of our island. Maui's chefs work with an amazing assortment of ingredients and many are from sustainable farms. Sunripened tropical fruits, perfect lettuces, herbs and vegetables from small farms upcountry; huge fish pulled from the azure blue seas, exotic spices, lamb and beef raised right on Maui.

When you factor in the beaches, the historic town of Lahaina, the fabulous resorts in Kapalua, Ka-‘anapali and Wailea, Maui is truly "The Best". As publisher of MENU, Maui's Guide to Fine Dining, Shopping and Spas, we hope you have had the pleasure to try nearly all of Maui‘s offerings! Visit them with me through the pages and discover their special features while perusing their mouth-watering dining options, enticing shopping and luxurious spa menus. By reading MENU you will get a sense of their flavors, menus, ambience and  prices. There’s no better way to find what you are looking for! Until we eat again! Mahalo! Jo Anne

“I went to Maui to stay a week and remained five. I never spent so pleasant a month before, or bade any place goodbye so regretfully. I have not once thought of business, or care or human toil or trouble or sorrow or weariness, and the memory of it will remain with me always.” — Mark Twain

Luaus

ENTERTAINMENT MAUI STYLE By Karee Carlucci

A typical Hawaiian celebration is the lu¯‘au feast. For the out-sider, it means a grand hula production with dinner. Did you know that the word lu‘au means to be filled full, but also refers to the tender green leaf of the taro plant? These leaves were used as cooking vessels. ‘Aha‘aina was the original Hawaiian word for feast, which literally means “a gathering of the land.” At one time, the people of Hawai‘i had to find an excuse not to hold a lu¯‘au. Just mentioning it would start everyone gathering the needs for a successful feast.

Wailele Polynesian Luau at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa The Wailele Polynesian Luau at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa is held outdoors alongside the legendary Ka’anapali Beach with a stunning oceanfront backdrop. The dinner show utilizes the elements of earth, fire and water to reflect the rich Polynesian culture through superb performances with vibrant costumes. The newly-revitalized Aloha Pavilion with cascading waterfalls, tropical gardens and tiki torches presents the perfect setting for guests to embark on an exciting journey to the Polynesian Islands where dance was considered not just as a form of enter­tainment, but as means of telling stories. Highlights iclude the story of Pele, Goddess of Fire and a new performance dedicated to Wailele (meaning waterfalls). The show also features dances from Hawaii, Fiji, Tahiti, New Zealand and Samoa. The breath taking finale is none other than Maui’s only extreme fire-knife dance performance. Enjoy a superb Hawaiian meal served buffet style with tradition- al selections for an authentic experience. The three hour experience includes a free flow of drinks all evening with Mai Tais, signature cocktails, local beers, sodas and fruit juices. Scheduled Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings, additional shows are presented during summer and holiday seasons. Visit westinmaui.com for show dates and details. For reservations, call the resort at 808-661-2992 or stop at the concierge desks at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa or The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas. (see page 43)

From the mountain would come a pua‘a (pig) which was baked in the ground. From the ocean limu (seaweed) was gathered; it was believed to release someone from wrongdoing. And from the cultivated land would come kalo (taro) root pounded into poi and ti leaves to cover a table (or mat) to elicit protection. But the essential ingredient for a truly successful lu‘au is sharing Aloha. Visitors to these islands soon find that the feast accompanied by music and dance is one of the best ways to celebrate Hawai‘i.

The Feast at Lele at 505 Front Street, Lahaina The Feast at Lele, an elegant pageant of Polynesia, is nestled in an intimate beachfront patio in South Lahaina. Executive Chef Adrian Aina combines fine dining with exciting Polynesian entertainment at The Feast at Lele. Set in an intimate garden setting, private tables are terraced around a raised beachfront platform. As the sun sinks, silhouetting Lana‘i island across the Auau channel, an outrigger canoe paddled by Hawaiian warriors is welcomed ashore with the blowing of the conch. A seamless presentation ensues as the dancers take diners on a tour of Hawai’i, Aotearoa (New Zealand), Tahiti and Samoa. As Polynesia is explored, corresponding cuisine is brought to the table. While the New Zealand Maori frighten their foes with their famous tattooed faces and haka (war dance); a 5 Hour Island Scented Braised Beef in Kiwi Jus and Sauteed Sweet Potato and Mushrooms are served, along with a 3rd seasonal Chef special. And when the sweet romance of Tahiti is presented with the exciting hip movements and regal feathered headdresses, there is Grilled Ginger Chicken with a Tahitian Vanilla Aoili and Mango Relish and Poisson Cru, along with a 3rd seasonal Chef special. The five-course Polynesian feast orchestrated by Executive Chef Adrian will satiate any appetite and please the gourmet palette immensely.“Island grown fruits and vegetables, many from our own organic farm, are incorporated into traditional Polynesian fare,” Chef Adrian said. “Complete with tableside service, this is a ‘foodie’s’ luau.” A burst of fire signals the grand finale, a stunning exhibition of Samoan fire knife dancing.

tepping onto the property at Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Craft Distillery, you are serenaded by rustling sugar cane and panoramic views of both the north and south shores of Maui. A friendly tour guide invites you into the fields, sharing information about the farming of organic sugar cane while walking through more than thirty species of cane including a rare collection of Native Polynesian varietals. From seed to finished spirit, your tour passes the sixty-foot twin distillation columns and continues inside the Craft Distillery. Hear about the complete process of manufacturing alcohol from distillation to blending, then bottling and distribution. And finish the tour with a savored sampling of Ocean Vodka and Deep Island Hawaiian Rum at our Sampling Bar. True to the company’s organic and sustainable commitment, Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Craft Distillery educates guests on the importance of organic farming for the conservation of land and ocean, green manufacturing, and the production of spirits. Crafting Ocean Vodka is a family effort and a true labor of love. Three generations of the Smith family have grown up on the beautiful island of Maui. They started Hawaii Sea Spirits, LLC (makers of Ocean Vodka) with the intention of building a business on Maui that presented an agriculturally based, non-perishable consumer product. The business would support the local community, sell product around the world, and be enjoyed by the extensive and ever-growing tourism base. Ten years later, Ocean Vodka is marketed and sold in 37 states and 2 provinces in Canada, expanding throughout North America, South America and Asia. Ocean Vodka has been the exclusive vodka on Hawaiian Airlines since 2007 and is the bestselling spirit from Hawai’i. Ocean Vodka is certified USDA Organic, gluten-free and the only vodka in the world made from organic sugar cane and deep ocean mineral water, sourced from a depth of 3,000 feet off the Kona Coast of the Island of Hawai’i. The Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Craft Distillery shares the dream with you. Situated on 80-acres of the breathtaking Mount Haleakala slopes, the home of Ocean Vodka is easily reached from Maui’s international Kahului Airport as well as the island’s world-famous resorts. The Organic Farm and Craft Distillery are open for tours throughout the day, seven days a week.

FEATURE STORY

The Westin Ka-‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas Cooks Up a New Restaurant

Auntie’s Kitchen

T

he Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas’ newest restaurant, Auntie’s Kitchen, celebrates the melting pot of flavors and cuisine that make up Hawai‘i’s local culinary culture. Auntie’s Kitchen opened in October 2016 and replaced Ocean Pool Bar and Grill in the same venue poolside off of the resort’s south lobby. Under the leadership of both Chef Tanya Doyle and Chef Brian Murphy, the ambience at Auntie’s Kitchen is made to feel as if you’re visiting a friend or relative’s house down the street. Chef Tanya recalls childhood memories of her family preparing food and uses those experiences to influence her cooking. The goal is to share the Hawaiian culture with everyone who visits. Auntie’s Kitchen supports local farmers and strives to be as sustainable as possible. “With Auntie’s Kitchen, we aim to deliver a food and beverage experience that highlights the best that local Maui cuisine has to offer in a setting that is relaxed, approachable and evokes a sense of comforting familiarity and a welcoming ‘ohana,” said Brandon Maeda, director of food and beverage at The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas. “We are committed to serving quality food and drink prepared with care and

the best ingredients,” he continues. Some of the herbs are even sourced from the resort’s very own onsite aquaponics garden that’s maintained by Napili-Flo Farms. The result of the collaboration is a menu that reflects an authentic island experience. Auntie’s Kitchen serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. For breakfast, guests can choose either the daily “Breakfast Table” buffet option or dishes off the menu, including Haupia French Toast with Homemade Coconut Jam, Banana Bread Waffle and Auntie’s Fried Rice. Inspired by local favorites, popular lunch and dinner items include the Dynamite ‘Ahi Poke Bowl, Local Plate Lunches, Seafood Stew and Uncle’s Prime Rib, served daily after 5 p.m. On Wednesdays, Auntie’s Kitchen hosts Crabfest, all-you-can-eat crab legs, with sides and a limited entrée menu. The signature cocktail is the Poke Bloody Mary, a double shot drink served over ice with a side of poke (recipe below). Auntie’s Kitchen is open daily from 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., with breakfast served until 10:30 a.m. Happy Hour is offered daily from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. (excluding holidays and special events).

orth of the landmark Pu‘u Keka‘a and around the necklace of bays of Chief Pi‘ilani (Na Honoa-pi‘ilani) is Kapalua Resort. In old Hawai‘i, the area was identified by the names of its principal bays, Honokahua and Honolua, which saw the comings and goings of voyaging canoes and fleets of war canoes. In the 1890s, one of Maui’s first missionary sons inherited this land and purchased thousands of acres more to found what would become one of Hawai‘i’s largest corporations, Alexander & Baldwin. As the pineapple crops flourished, Baldwin’s Honolua Ranch grew, importing laborers from Asia and the Azores and building homes in camps, a company store and offices. Some buildings can still be seen around the resort today, including the landmark Honolua Store, built in 1929, which is still in operation. Perhaps Kapalua Resort’s most significant legacy is that of environmental conservation. When the resort was conceived in the late 1970s, owners Maui Land & Pineapple Company instituted conservation programs for a majority of their priceless landholdings: Honolua Bay and Mokulē‘ia Bay were designated a Marine Life Conservation District. On the mountainside, the Pu‘u Kukui Watershed Preserve is the largest privately owned nature preserve in the state and home to plant and animal species that exist nowhere else in the world.

Through the centuries, Ka-‘anapali has been revered in legend and is an attractive landscape of natural beauty. This area, which encompasses Hanakao‘o (Canoe) Beach at the south end to Kahekili (Keka‘a) Beach in the north, has always beckoned people to explore long stretches of golden sand, cultivate fertile plains, and wonder at the peaks of Mauna Kahalawai. In ancient times Ka-‘anapali (then known as Keka‘a) was the site of a thriving fishing village, lush fields of taro, warrior training grounds and a fierce battle between two royal brothers. The resort area was steeped in legends, such as the feats of Maui, the demi-god and Pueo, the guardian owl. The lore from a 15th century high chief who ruled the community at Keka‘a and banished his mischievous son to the neighboring island of Lana‘i to tame its ghosts, to the feats of Kahekili, the Thunderer, a chief who excelled in the sport of cliff diving and was fearless. In modern times, before the development of Hawai‘i’s first master-planned resort, the area boasted a horse race track, and railroad tracks that led to a pier for shipping sugar cane. The early years of Ka-‘anapali Resort saw the establishment of a convenient airstrip, which guided visitors in prop planes right to their hotel’s front desk.

The Iconic Cliff Dive Ceremony

The Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa

“Cocktails and culture at Cliff Dive Grill”

S

heraton Maui Resort & Spa’s Cliff Dive Grill, named for its prime location at Black Rock, on beautiful Ka-‘anapali Beach, is the perfect spot to relax while watching the resort’s iconic nightly cliff dive ceremony. Guests will taste delicious pupus, craft beers and tropical cocktails with an awe-inspiring Ka-‘anapali sunset as the backdrop. Live music plays in the background as a hula dancer performs for guests, and it’s impossible not to unwind as the sun dips into the Pacific Ocean, signaling the end of another magical Maui day. Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa has been honoring the legend of the last chief of Maui, Kahekili, since opening its doors in 1963 through its nightly cliff diving ceremony at Pu‘u Keka‘a (Black Rock). In Hawaiian tradition Pu‘u Keka‘a, “hill of rolling stones”, is a sacred site with a history dating back hundreds of years. Hawaiians believe that Pu‘u Keka‘a is one of three “‘uhane lele”, a place where souls of the dead

MENU | MENU-MAGAZINE.COM

leap from earth into their ancestral spirit land. It is believed that only a person with great spiritual strength can enter that world and return. Chief Kahekili, known by his people as “The Thunderer,” lived in Ka-‘anapali and ruled over Maui and O‘ahu between 1749 and 1794. One of his many legendary athletic feats was the ancient Hawaiian sport of “lele kawa,” leaping feet first from heights as high as 300 to 400 feet and plunging into the ocean or fresh water pools below. Although there were many ideal spots on the island to perform this breathtaking sport, the uhane lele – Pu‘u Keka‘a – was not one of them. Chief Kahekili proved his bravery and spiritual strength by jumping from Pu‘u Keka‘a and returning to shore unscathed, and he gained much respect and admiration by his people and warriors. On January 23, 1963, Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa opened its doors to the world. In honor of Hawaii’s royalty that once called Ka-‘anapali home, the nightly tradition of torch lighting and cliff diving began. Just

before sunset each evening, a young warrior dressed in the traditional “malo” (loincloth) sets torches aflame shedding light upon the lush lawns of Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa. The story of Chief Kahekili and Pu‘u Keka‘a is retold at Cliff Dive Grill as the warrior journeys across the white sands of Ka-‘anapali Beach, lighting the torches set on the crest of Black Rock. He traces an ancient path to the summit of Pu‘u Keka‘a, utters a blessing to his ancestors, offers his torch to the ocean below, and finishes with a courageous dive into the rolling surf of the Pacific. Grab a seat at Cliff Dive Grill, and experience an ancient era come to life as a young cliff diver dives from atop Black Rock and honors the legendary leap of Chief Kahekili. It’s truly a wonderful cultural experience and celebrates the history of Maui. Cliff Dive Grill is open daily from 11 am to 9 pm, with happy hour from 3 to 5 pm.

Lãhainã “Hawai‘i’s first Constitution was adopted at Lahaina”

W

hen the first Polynesian settlers arrived on Maui’s shores well over a thousand years ago, Lahaina offered them abundant freshwater streams, verdant valleys with fertile volcanic soil, a bountiful pristine sea and warm, sunny days. Steeped in a history which documents its progress from one era to another, Lahaina has retained a flavor of each to this day. Once the Hawaiians were settled in Lahaina they established Moku‘ula, the sacred island within a fishpond, which was a royal residence for ali‘i of Maui since the 16th century. After the decisive battle of ‘Iao Valley in 1790, which resulted in unifying the Hawaiian Islands, Kamehameha I made a political move to unite himself with the women of Maui’s royal line. It is with this marriage of powerful royal lines that Lahaina became the first Capital of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i. 1819 was a pivotal year for Lahaina and the Hawaiian Kingdom. Kamehameha the Great died and was succeeded by his son, Liholiho (Kamehameha II). The first whaling ships as well as the first French warship visited Lahaina, marking a sea change in the traditions of old Hawai‘i. By 1823, Christian missionaries

arrived in Lahaina, and Keopuolani (Kamehameha I’s sacred first wife) became an early convert. Kauikeaouli (Kamehameha III) succeeded to the throne as a child and was left under the care of Regent Ka‘ahumanu (Kamehameha the Great’s second wife). The first half of the 19th century is filled with “firsts” for Hawai‘i: the peak of the whaling industry impacted Lahaina; a cornerstone was laid for the first church; Lahainaluna Mission School opened; and the first printing press was started there. Hawai‘i’s first Constitution was adopted at Lahaina and a legislative session was held in 1840. But by 1845, the Royal Court left Lahaina and moved the capital to Honolulu. In 1873, Sheriff Smith planted Lahaina’s Banyan Tree, now the largest in the US. And in 1877, the first telephone and telegraph lines in all of Hawai‘i were installed on Maui. The 20th century rooted the plantation era in Hawai‘i. In 1901, Pioneer Hotel opened and remained Lahaina’s only hotel until the early 1960s. By the 1950s, family-owned fish markets, stores and noodle shops were thriving, supplying plantation workers and visitors alike. As Hawai‘i became the 50th State, Hollywood became fascinated with Lahaina and several movies and TV shows were filmed in town. Celebrity musicians, film and TV stars are still frequently attracted to Lahaina today.

“farm to table cuisine with the best view in town”

F

arm to Table is not a new concept, however it is something society has gotten away from and is something we are finally seeing a return to. People have always grown their own food and bought or traded from nearby farmers. They did this knowing the food they put on their plates and into their bodies was fresh, local, and for the most part, organic. This same food can be in transit for weeks now. With the rise of the Industrial Revolution, refrigeration and the general populous moving into more urbanized areas, food is now being transported thousands of miles and is no longer picked from the farm and served within a day or so. This has a huge impact on Hawaii. Bringing quality locally sourced ingredients back to the table proves challenging at times, conversely Pacific’O thrives on doing just that. Ocean front on a white sandy beach in Lahaina, Pacific’O was the first restaurant on Maui to endeavor operating its own farm, O’o Farm, with exclusive use for the restaurant. Our Chef is continuously inspired; poised to make original and exotic dishes, not only delicious, but nutritious. Nutrients and flavor dissipate quickly. So the longer the

time between harvest and your fork, the more quality is lost. It’s not uncommon to have our produced delivered the day it is harvested and on your plate within hours. At O’o Farm we offer guided foot tours of our orchards and gardens, through rows of beets, heirloom carrots, radishes, pole beans, coffee trees etc… In addition to educating our guests on these tours, we often invite them to help gather or harvest our fresh produce and incorporate it into our gourmet lunch. It’s not uncommon for the aromas of our Maui grown coffee beans being freshly roasted, to make their way across the farm. We are proud to showcase our new coffee roasting facility and are now offering a “seed to cup” tour as well. In addition to farm to table fare, Pacific’O has long held a reputation for having the freshest fish around. We maintain outstanding relationships with several sports fishing boats and daily the fisherman bring in their freshly caught Mahi Mahi, Ono, Opakapaka and the occasional 200lb Tuna, in through our front doors. There is never a shortage of exciting seasonably inspired dishes @ pacific’O. We’ll see you soon! (pages 56, 57) MENU-MAGAZINE.COM | MENU

Kobe Japanese Steak House & Oku’s Sushi Bar

FEATURE STORY

Happy 30th Birthday!

T

here are a number of types of Japanese restaurants and Maui's KOBE JAPANESE STEAK HOUSE in Lahaina, has been voted #1 Japanese Restaurant by Maui News Readers and is now celebrating their 30th anniversary. Located just off Front Street, the teppanyaki-style steakhouse is an anchor Maui treasure.  ROD GARDINER originally started Kobe on Maui in 1986 and MARTHA HALEAKALA came on board as his office manager in October of 1993. Martha bought KOBE JAPANESE STEAK HOUSE from Rod in 2002 and has enjoyed running this fabulous and entertaining restaurant for for 13 years now! Martha's Head Chef Felamor Simon, has been with Kobe since 2002 and has been a teppan chef for 34 years now. Martha's second chef, Silver Agbayani started working with her bussing tables while in high school and has worked his way up to # 2 teppan chef. Perseverance furthers! Many of her employees, Eileen Hirouji, Richard Acosta, Manuel Sanchez, Scot Nakamura, Guadalupe Ilar have been with Kobe for over 20 years.. Guada has been with Kobe since Day One! Oku of Oku's Sushi Bar moved to Maui's Kobe in 1996 after having worked for Rod in the Waikiki Kobe for many years. He prides himself in having the freshest fish for your sushi and sashimi dishes! Teppan means “steel grill” and yaki means “grilled” simply making it “grilling on a grill”. In 1945 a restaurant in Japan first introduced the show concept which was as much about the performance skills of the chefs with their fast, clinking, shiny, and very sharp knives and their sense of humor as it was about food. It soon became very popular with the visitors to Japan as an entertaining Japanese dining experience.  Teppanyaki-style or “Japanese steakhouses" as they came to be popularly known came to the United States in 1964 with the first opening in New York. “Japanese steakhouses” really took off after a well known food critic with the New York Tribune gave it a rave review. It became the place to go to see and be seen for all the celebreties of the time.  Kobe Japanese Steak House in Lahaina continues with the tradition to place an emphasis on the talents of the chef performing a show for the diners, continuing to introduce new variations and tricks. Besides being master chefs, each Teppanyaki Chef is an entertainer. Each Chef has his own table-side manner and unique sense of humor making every trip an experience.

The talented chef might juggle utensils, flip a shrimp tail into his/her shirt pocket, catch an egg in their hat, toss an egg up in the air and split it with a spatula or flip flattened shrimp pieces into the diners' mouths. The Kobe Japanese Steak House & Oku's Sushi Bar has nineteen teppans or grills, with ten downstairs and nine in the upstairs dining room as well as the great Oku’s Sushi Bar. There is a full Island cocktail bar featuring many great specialty drinks. These include saké (in English) which in Japanese, saké or o-saké refers to alcoholic drinks in general. The Japanese term for this specific rice wine, which is brewed more like beer than wine, is Nihonshu, meaning “Japanese saké”.  At Kobe Japanese Steak House & Oku's Sushi Bar, though the entertainment factor is high, the quality of their food is just as important. You can start with the Spicy Tuna Roll and the Shrimp Tempura Roll from the sushi bar followed by the Nova Scotia Scallop Appetizer and Shabu-Shabu soup.  One choice for your main course is the firm-fleshed cold water lobster and steak combo which can be upgraded to the tender aged beef filet. You can opt for the regular white rice or garlic fried rice. The fresh shrimp is delicious and entertaining and the tail provided our chef an extra prop to flip around and finally end up on his head hidden in his chef’s hat or toque. Hopefully he found it later that night. I shared the teppan (grill) with a friendly local Japanese family. They said they had been to Kobe Japanese Steak House before on a karaoke night with the always entertaining Toddy Lilikoi, Friday and Saturday evenings from 9:30 pm until closing. If you have secretly always wanted to be a singer or a Rock Star, Karaoke is a form of interactive entertainment in which amateur singers sing along with recorded music using a microphone. The music is typically a well-known pop song minus the lead vocal with lyrics displayed on a video screen. It is loads of fun to participate or even just watch. If you have not experienced it you should do it at least once and your vacation is as good a time as any. (see pages 54 & 55)

The Hawaiian people sought the isolation of Haleakalā for ceremonial purposes, instruction and personal reasons. There is a wide spectrum of native island ecosystems which is protected and preserved by the national park system. The park includes Kipahulu Valley on the south east and Ohe‘o Gulch. There are two main trails leading into Haleakala: Sliding Sands Trail and Halemau‘u Trail.

A

long Maui’s northeastern coast, caressed by the trade winds, two acres of historic ruins and lush tropical gardens rise dramatically against a Hawaiian sky. The Haiku Sugar Mill, also known as Pua Le‘a (“blossoming passion” in Hawaiian), blends the stunning natural beauty of Hawaii with the Old World elegance of Europe. In 1858, when the Haiku Sugar Company was chartered, construction began on the Mill. Upon completion three years later in 1861, the Mill processed its very first crop using the leading edge technology of the time: a steam engine to grind the cane. This marked the beginning of nearly 20 years of successful sugar cane production in Haiku. In 1879, after years as a hub of sugar production, the Mill was abandoned, left for over a century to gently decay into ruin. The vines and lush vegetation grew and covered the thick stone walls, turning the Mill into the beautiful structure we see today. 20 years ago an immense restoration effort to revive the true spirit of the Mill began. They transformed the abandoned ruins from a decrepit sugar factory into the blossoming hidden treasure it is today and renamed it the simpler, more poetic “Haiku Mill”. 

Old Mill Entrance Haiku Mill has launched its all-new Mango Lilikoi Preserve in partnership with Maui Preserved, handcrafted to perfection using mangos and lilikoi grown on property. Available only at Haiku Mill, individually or in packages, this delicious preserve comes in 2oz and 8 oz jars. Contact Haiku Mill to purchase.

“CHEESE”!

Udderly Delicious Delicacies

Looking for a new twist in their lives, the Kafsacks decided 12 years ago to move to Hawaii and practice the art of gourmet cheese production, a far cry from their previous occupations of leading a software company or teaching high school German. While Thomas went to work on the financial planning, Eva set out to learn the craft and secretsof cheesemaking from Europe’s best. Working at and visiting dairies throughout Germany, Austria, and France allowed her to develop a mental image of the type of dairy that she wanted to run and cheeses she wanted to produce. An image that the two of them made a reality over the past 15 years.

Join us… for a NEW adventure!

WINNER OF 18 NATIONAL AWARDS

The Surfing Goat fresh Chevre run the gamut of cheese flavors from “Udderly Delicious” (plain) to exotic varieties like “Mandalay” (apple bananas and curry) and Perigord (black truffle shavings from Perigord). The Dairy also produces several soft cheeses, including ones ripened in wax, in olive oil with garlic, or coated with mesquite ash, along with brine-ripened feta cheese. The Kafsacks started out selling their cheeses at local farmers markets, but their product was soon picked up by a variety of retail locations, varying from wine stores to delis to locally owned grocery stores. Quickly thereafter, many of Maui’s gourmet restaurants voiced interest in using the Surfing Goat cheese on their menus, where it can now be found crumbled on salads, on pizzas, stuffed inside ravioli, or simply making an appearance on a dessert cheese platter. In the last few years they have added “Oh My”... goat Cheese Truffles to their product line. At first the Kafsacks found that milking their goats only once a day was more than adequate to cover the demand for their cheese, but as word spread it became apparent that after the next dry period they would have to switch to milking their does at night, as well as in the morning. Over the last few years they have selected several kids to keep to expand their herd by a significant amount. Their herd currently consists of a conglomeration of Saanens, Alpines and La Manchas.

ost of south Maui’s history lies along its coastline. From the shores of Ma‘a‘laea Bay to the beaches of Makena are heard past echoes of Hawaiian fishing villages, busy harbors, sugar plantations, WWII military exercises and cattle ranching. Captain George Vancouver set anchor in Ma‘alaea in 1793 and is best known for his numerous, but unsuccessful attempts to bring peace between Kings Kamehameha of Hawai‘i and Ka‘hekili of Maui. On the way to Kihei, is the Kealia National Wildlife Refuge boardwalk on North Kihei road, Hwy. 310. Large sea turtles use the area to cross the road to the pond to lay their eggs. At the Kihei Memorial Beach is the historic Kihei Landing, where a 200 foot wharf, used for many years by interisland boats shipping freight and produce. Due to increases in sand accumulation, it became impossible for the larger sea vessels to reach the wharf, usage stopped around 1915. As early as the 1800’s, before the southern slopes of Haleakala became farm and ranch land, the southern coast of Maui is said to have been lush rainforest, with coconut and Kou trees, taro and ‘ape, clear water pools found at the end of freshwater streams. The continued deforestation, erosion and atmospheric changes in

Charley Young Beach, aka The Cove, was named after a military reporter named Charley Young who purchased property in the Kama’ole area just before WWII. The “Cove” is a favorite spot for novice surfers and when tide is out, it is wonderfully shallow for kids and adults! The original Kihei Boat ramp was located here but closed in 1983.

Maui Thai l B I S T R O & B R A S S E R I E

“Thai Cuisine — A New Orthodoxy?” by Chit Tharnthong When one decides to dine out for some great Thai food, one rarely thinks about the equally great cocktails that will go with it. Everyone loves a good beer with ethnic food, but try switching things up.  The Brasserie at Maui Thai Bistro is breaking the boundaries by serving up complex, exotic and delicious cocktails which pair perfectly with its Thai dishes. In this new and popular establishment, one will find excellent cocktail choices created by its innovative bar manager, Cory Wymer. Most people with a love for Thai cuisine are familiar with the Tom Kha and Tom Yum soups. Not only has Maui Thai extended these flavors into their signature Tom Yum Stir-Fry and Tom Yum Fried Rice, they now have a Tom Yum Martini!  Starting with an intensely aromatic kaffir lime leaf from the Bistro's garden, the bartender will muddle the kaffir lime leaf with freshsqueezed lime juice. He then adds vodka, a ginger-lemongrass shochu to the muddled leaves then their house-made Thai chili simple syrup. This is well shaken and then poured into a perfectly chilled martini glass. For a little variation of this cocktail, ask for cream of coconut to be added, thereby making this a Tom Kha Martini for a touch of sweetness. Not only are these cocktails delicious, they use the freshest ingredients whenever possible. It is hard to find a bar on Maui that uses a fresh-squeezed sour mix for their margaritas; however, that

is exactly what Maui Thai Bistro's Brasserie uses. All ingredients are prepared fresh. They make their own roasted strawberry purée using local Kula strawberries for their Strawberry Basil Mojito. Very delicious. Whether you imbibe or not, there definitely is something for everyone at this vibrant spot. The Brasserie has the Hawaiian tropical favorite Mai Tai (yet have appropriately coined theirs "My Thai") and several non-alcoholic 'mocktails' which are enjoyed by all.  Located at the Rainbow Mall in South Kihei,  Maui Thai Bistro and its bar extension, The Brasserie, is a bit hard to find as it is located at the back of the Mall. This is one of Maui's best kept tasty secrets as attested by locals and visitors. A short walking distance from all the Kamaole beaches, Maui Thai Bistro is an easy choice or lunch, dinner, or one of its three happy hours.

YASHA JEWELS “Creating Art Jewelry as Unique as You!”

Yasha studied environmental engineering and earned a P.h.D. from Cornell University. After having worked in this field she felt that engineering wasn't her true passion. It wasn't until she broke an emerald necklace and rebuilt it herself that she realized what her calling was… jewelry artist. She has been creating fine, multiculturally-inspired jewelry ever since! Yasha creates her designs in an enchanting way-gemstones are her muse. At times she dreams of what she will create; other times it's simply the flora and fauna around our island that inspire her. Whatever the source, once her visions are transformed into the tangible, a special piece is born. No two of her pieces are exactly the same and this is what makes Yasha Jewels so desirable! It can be said that you don't choose her pieces - they choose you. This has been the experience of a multitude of her clients. One of Yasha's customers said, "I enjoy my beautiful necklace so much that I hang it where I can always appreciate it’s beauty and when I wear it, the compliments I receive are a bonus!" Yasha's jewels really aren't just jewelry - they're true works of art and functional too.

Using her engineering training, Yasha has created a way to transform one piece into several. Her long necklaces can be transformed into two short ones, or into a matching necklace and a bracelet. Whether you are looking for a statement piece or a dainty one, you'll feel quite special when wearing Yasha's jewelry. Her style is a blend of old-world civilizations with those of today. She says it best herself, ''I really look deeply into the gemstones and I allow the piece to create itself. And that way the uniqueness will always be there." -Yasha-

QUIRKY & ODD & FUN ... Oh My Steven Lee Smeltzer has often said that he finds himself entangled in a web of nonsense...and he loves it. Inspired by everything and everyone, his creations come to life in his mind, then take shape from a mound of clay with the innate skill of a true artisan. Each sculpture reflects Steven’s desire to bring a sense of lightheartedness to all that are willing to indulge in imaginative and fanciful art. Though recently a number of his whimsical characters unexpectedly veered away from the humorous side of life to the more sinister, with a starring role as antagonists in Wray Ardan’s youngadult “romance dark-fantasy thriller” novel, Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate.

Steven was initially drawn to Maui because of it’s easy going lifestyle, and drawn to the life of an artist because it worked well with his surfing schedule. If his sculptures could talk—that is, besides in his head— they’d say that Steven has to live on Maui, it fills his artistic nature; and that he has to surf, it too, fills his artistic nature; and, that if his art makes you smile, it is doing its job. With 25 years of representation at Maui Hands, you can find Steven’s art at Maui Hands in Lahaina, Ka’anapali, Paia and Makawao -  mauihands.com 808-573-2021 (see page 18)

While Steven is most recognized for his whimsical ceramic sculptures, he also creates stunning bronze sculptures, as well as oil and acrylic paintings—and has even ventured into the world of CGI animation, working as an Associate Producer and set designer on a CGI television pilot that transformed several of his sculptures into animated creatures.

T

he Spa Industry is a wellness movement that does not only educate and enlighten the consumer, but also carefully cradles the balance between ancient and modern healing therapies. In earlier years, the Spa Industry’s focus was about returning to the basics; simple relaxation, and completely letting go. More recently, a noticeable shift in the spa lifestyle has developed, where spa goers want the ability to choose authentic experiences unique to the spa location, and want customized spa treatments that have been perfectly designed to tell a story. These original customized treatments enable you be a part of that story, while honoring the host culture at the same time. Spas on Maui have respectfully replicated treatments local to Hawaii, with products that use popular local ingredients suchas alaea clay, raw volcanic salt, virgin coconut oils, and island flower extracts. Most spas on Maui utilize and promote eco-friendly ingredients with real benefits, and exercise genuine ancient practices that will leave you more enlightened coming out, than when you went in. Multiple spas on Maui give Spa goers the flexibility to customize treatments to their needs at the time of the appointment, and are given a way to re-create these experiences in their everyday lives. Other spas offer experiences with advanced relaxation technology, used to enhance your spa journey with a sophisticated, futuristic spin. Some of these luxury advances include color therapy tubs, where colored lights illuminate your therapeutic bath for total relaxation, and rainbow rain showers, where soothing water jets glowing with gentle light can go from a gentle rain-like spray, to a vigorous downpour. No matter what experience you choose, Maui Spas offer escapism from stressful reality, and give us the ability to infuse wellness in our lives by focusing on creating a “Spa Haven” in our own space. Spa living allows us to bridge the gap between our at home care, and our next spa visit. MENU-MAGAZINE.COM | MENU

Willow Stream Spa Spa Menu Hawaiian Pa’akai Signature Treatment In ancient Hawai‘i, pa‘akai (sea salt) was gathered from dry pools along the island’s coastlines. Hawaiian sea salt contains more than 80 minerals, and is considered to be one of the three most mineral-rich salts available. Healing sea salt is mixed with organic coconut oil and locally grown green papaya and lemongrass, which leaves skin smooth and hydrated. Rinse under our state-of-the-art vichy shower, with infra-red light therapy. An application of rich Hawaiian coconut oil completes the treatment.

MAUI HEALTH

New Technology for Non-Invasive Healing Compliments of Dr. Ian Cholewa

”ONDAMED® is the most advanced sports injury technology in the 21st century“ Ondamed was invented in Schwanau, Germany by Rolf Binder, electronic engineer. The technology is the result of 25 years of research in biophysical medical testing and therapy that resulted in the development of several well known and sophisticated therapeutic devices. On the basis of this experience, Rolf Binder discovered how to interrogate the body’s communication systems and introduce signals that stimulate the natural healing process. Medical professionals worldwide have been using Ondamed with remarkable success for over a decade. Over 50 years, scientists and engineers have developed various techniques for “looking” inside the body to diagnose disease and trauma. Examples include X-rays, CT scans, MRI, Ultrasound, etc. Likewise treatments are provided by the energy from lasers, the Gamma Knife and so on. Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) are yet another non-invasive breakthrough treatment modality. Ondamed combines PEMF with biofeedback system to enable the practitioner to relieve pain, improve cell function and circulation, and promote relaxation. Ondamed is based on the principle of electromagnetic induction. The device produces a highly focused pulsed electromagnetic field that penetrates deep into the target region of the body to painlessly stimulate tissues and “jump-start” cellular activities.

The Ondamed system complements other treatments such as pharmaceuticals, homeopathic medicines, nutritional supplements and other therapeutic modalities; patients respond faster and the effects are longer lasting. A unique feature of Ondamed is to enable the practitioner to monitor patients’ responses to a wide variety of subtle electromagnetic fields introduced through a neck applicator, and select which frequencies or frequency programs are most appropriate. These signals are then introduced with a hand-held applicator and/or larger matrix applicator. A typical treatment lasts about 30 minutes. Patients consistently report leaving a session feeling less pain, more relaxed and refreshed, able to think more clearly and better prepared for life’s challenges. MENU-MAGAZINE.COM | MENU
