You know, sometimes it really does pay to be a dork. Every couple of months or so I do a little national magazine patrol to see what kind of interesting food articles are being run in the contiguous states, although I pay the most attention to California (who calls my name louder every day…). So what do I find in Marin Magazine but a beautiful feature article on the grassroots movement of Hawaii Regional Cuisine. The magazine talks to several of the HRC founders, as well as a couple of contemporary protegés (including newcomer Ryan Loo of Twist at Hanohano), and puts together a very nice piece. Enjoy it here.
By the way, Happy 2009…I quite literally had a blast coordinating the fireworks (nothing illegal!) on the Eve. Wishing you prosperity and peace.
