There are some people who are born to cook and after spending one evening with Linda in her Hawaiian Style Cooking Class I am convinced that she is a true natural who was not simply born to cook but was born to teach.  She has perfected her craft in such a way that she understands the art of teaching others how to cook and also how to use cooking to connect people from all walks of life.  I feel so fortunate to have had such a beautiful opportunity to not only be invited into her lovely Hawaiian home but to learn how to prepare some of Hawaii’s local favorites such as Baked Mochi, Musubi, Coconut Shrimp, and three different types of Poke.  I am from Louisiana and so I had never tried any of the dishes before however, all were exceptionally delicious (especially the coconut shrimp and spicy poke).  Believe me none of the dishes will disappoint.  I must admit that the best food that I ate while spending two weeks on Oahu was prepared in Linda’s cooking class.  Believe me the food is not only delicious but Linda does an exceptional job of teaching the history and culture behind each dish we prepared.  I could truly tell that Linda is a person who enjoys explaining how the infusion of so many different cultures result in so many exquisite dishes on the Islands of Hawaii.   In addition to providing background knowledge on the dishes we prepared, Linda is so orderly that cooking a variety of dishes was not difficult.  She truly understands the art of how to successfully manage a group of ten in the kitchen.  I thoroughly enjoyed working with the other guests, talking with them, and finally having dinner with them on her beautiful lanai.  It was like I had known everyone forever.  In addition, the presentation of each dish was absolutely gorgeous!  I had never seen coconut shrimp display so nicely. I must admit I loved how she used the pineapple for the presentation.   I am convinced that if you are interested in more than an excursion but truly want to engage in an exceptional experience you should definitely spend an evening with Linda.  I departed from her home feeling extremely happy because I had enjoyed a delicious meal that I had helped to prepare with a group of people and an amazing host that felt like family.  Linda, you are an extraordinary gem!  Keep up the great work because when people visit Hawaii they need opportunities like the one you provide to not simply enjoy a meal at a restaurant but to learn about the origin of the food and to have an opportunity to prepare what you will eat.   Your class provides connections to the beautiful Hawaiian culture through a delicious meal.  Please be mindful that your night doesn’t just end with a meal.  Linda provided each member of the cooking class with a cooking bag, some special seasoning, and recipes for everything that was prepared. (Sadly, I can’t find my recipe sheet.)  However, this would be an excellent reason to travel 4,206 miles to Honolulu and take the class again.  Mahalo Linda for providing us with an absolutely amazing and beautiful evening in your home.  You are a FABULOUS chef!!!!

This was one of my favorite highlights of our trip to Honolulu. My friend and I spent a wonderful morning learning about Hawaiian cooking, the impact of Spam (the canned meat) on the island, as well as its Japanese influences. At the end of class we enjoyed the rewards of our cooking with our hostess. I highly recommend this as a must do if you really enjoy learning about a culture and it's food.

Linda was a good teacher, she explained everything clearly and gave us a lot of tips and advice on how to find certain unique ingredients, reproduce the dishes we made at home, and also gave lots of little stories about her life in Hawai'i. The class is held in her home between Diamond Head and the beach -- beautiful sunset views to top off your day as you sit down to eat what you have prepared in class.

What an experience! My husband and I boomed this as an activity during our honeymoon. Our instructor Linda was warm, funny and clear. We learned how to make butter mochi, masubi and poké three ways! Linda has a lot of experience in the kitchen and in Hawaiian culture. We learned about Hawaiian and culture during each part of the class, we tasted almost every ingredient throughout the process of these meals. At the end of the class, we sat down together and enjoyed the food we cooked. I highly, highly recommend this class. Linda invites you into her home, we met her dogs and pet pig Bacon. She teaches ALL KINDS of cuisine, not just Hawaiian and she can work with you if you have dietary and allergy restrictions.
