I couldn't be happier with Kuoha Culinary and Chef Ed. The dinner party was a huge success. The menu was incredilble and the food was delicious. This was the first time I used a personnel chef and it was hands down one of the most enjoyable experiences I've ever had. What a great way to celebrate a special event. Thanks chef, for your professionalism, creativity and passion.
Chef Kimo (Loren Holly) exceeded all of my expectations! Chef's timing was perfect; guests raved about the food and the combination of flavors and texture. The food was served hot and some of my guests were pleased to be able to watch Chef Kimo in action! The dinner for 50 was at my home in Kaneohe. Service was for 6:30 pm. Chef Kimo worked with me on the menu and at exactly 6:30, dinner was served. Food service was buffet style and Chef Kimo made sure that the food kept coming! Chef Kimo cooked and cleaned and at the end of the evening, the kitchen was immaculate. After the party ended and as guests prepared to leave, Chef Kimo and the crew broke down the tables and chairs and before leaving for the evening, made sure that everything was cleaned and taken away. Everyone raved about the food and the service! As the host, I was most grateful for the privilege of working with Chef Kimo. Using Kimo's Akamai Catering for this special event was the best decision I made!
Sasha is the bomb! We had an awesome experience using her as a private chef for a one night event. I would gladly use her again!! Thank you Sasha!!!
Jeremy is one of those special, one-of-a-kind humans beings, and my husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect person to have alongside us at our wedding. He worked closely with us and was so attentive and accommodating to our needs and requests. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted - poignant, sweet, short, and with all the right personal touches. It felt like having a very close friend instead of an officiant blessing and honoring our marriage. If you are considering hiring Jeremy/Hanai events for your special occasion - I highly recommend! You will not be disappointed in their kindness, attention to detail, and earners to go above and beyond.
I cannot say enough great things about Chef Pedro, the food was outstanding, they were so accommodating, very friendly and professional. The coordinator leading up to our event was so helpful and kind and the staff the day of was wonderful, warm and professional. Everyone was raving about the food! We were on a budget, but really good in-season food was important to us and Chef Pedro made that happen for us at a reasonable rate. The day of the event there was a glitch with the tables/chairs, and without missing a beat Chef Pedros stepped in to help resolve that issue without ever worrying us. While one might consider a caterer/Chef to only deal with food, they had their hand in nearly all aspects of the day and worked in perfect harmony with the venue care taker. They just have an ALL STAR staff combine with ALL STAR food. Everything was just wonderful. I would highly recommend them!
While visiting Oahu this Spring, we had a small family reunion plus belated birthdays for our two young granddaughters. Chef Jesse Dowling created a wonderful dinner for the occasion and helped make it a memorable evening for all of us. The presentation was lovely and the dinner was delicious. Not only is he a talented chef, he is personable and patiently answered all of our granddaughters' questions about food preparation, cooking, etc. We were delighted with his service and we certainly recommend him to anyone considering a personal chef.

Chef Chai is generous, kind, brilliant and the best at everything he does. Not only did he cater our wedding, he personally oversaw every aspect and when our cake lady neglected to bring boxes so our guests could bring the cake home, Chef Chai immediately figured out a way to solve the problem and made sure we could have boxes for our guests. Chef Chai is not only an incredible caterer, but his restaurants are top notch. Whenever we return to Hawai'i we make sure to visit him and every experience is nothing short of magical every time. If you ever get the blessing to meet this man and his team, you'll know the magic he creates within seconds of being in his wonderful company.
As a recently single professional, I needed a great cook who delivered. One easy meeting and she understood what I was looking for - mostly savory and everything delivered in glass tupperware. She's definitely a great cook - the only way I can say it is you can tell she loves what she's doing and you can kind of taste that in the food. It tastes home cooked, prices are right in line and reasonable and the food is delivered. Just what I ordered. Recommend highly. 5 stars. MF - Kailua

Normally you get "Chefs" that need certain ingredients. I try and teach to cook with what you have available. Beats running to the store every five minutes just to get something you forgot. I like to teach basic skills that teenagers or single people or parents can learn. I also like to teach in depth too. I enjoy trying new things with food. Something that hasnt been done before but also like to play it safe.

I am a personal cook and caterer. As a personal cook, I mainly do home-style cooking for my clients with their personal needs in mind. As a caterer, I will sit down or talk over the phone with you to plan the menu for your event and customize it to your preferences. I have catered for office parties, bridal showers and many different holiday gatherings. I have a small clientele that I cook for on a weekly basis and an office group that I cater for monthly. My pricing is reasonable and usually on the lower end. As I work with you, we will plan a menu to stay within your budget.
The ability to work in someone's home is very personal. The rapore that builds between the client and myself is important. I become an extension of their family and they rely and put their trust in me to feed them properly. I have worked for many years in restaurants where one is feeding masses of people. I like to prepare artisan meals for individual clients. Preparation, love and care can be put into each meal without being so rushed.
I love to create new recipes around my clients preferences as well as share original recipes I've designed from my passion for cooking.
