Discovery Networks International contacted me about appearing on Mission Menu, a restaurant makeover program that will premiere on TLC International in 2012. The 30-minute series is a co-production with nuvoTV that follows three international chefs as they overhaul existing restaurants. The self-described “United Nations of chefs” will cook up delicious drama while helping restaurants go from simmering to sizzling with exciting new culture-based dishes.
Episode 6. Hawaiian Aloha Grass skirts, hula dancing, and a whole pig roast – G’s team goes Hawaiian as they try to create a winning combination! Will traditional poi and pork buns heat up things up for a cooling Hawaiian shave ice shop?
The executive chefs visit the Annual Hawaiʻi Potluck Picnic in Central Park to research Hawaiian food and culture. With KoAloha ʻukulele in hand, I tell them about pounding poi. Note to all food shows… contact me to eat and talk about FOOD! Mahalo.
