Behind the Scenes

Chef Sheldon Simeon reviews  at
"SABAO & RICE with Kauai Clams The connection to Soup and Rice in Filipino culture is so significant, because for many of us this was the first dish that we are fed. I have raised my kids the same as my parents did me. They'll eat soup all day everyday. @astonhotels #Kauaifresh2table @ericfaivre #rodmanmachado"

"This is my favorite bok choy dish of all time. Beurre "black" with crispy leeks and radishes make this simple vegetable into a crave-able experience. We ate the whole plate without stopping!"
