Mahalo for attending An Evening with Francis Lam and The Splendid Table, we hope you enjoyed the conversations on Hawaii’s unique food culture. A special thank you to Francis and his guest speakers: Sheldon Simeon, Emma Bello, Ed Kenney, Robynne Maii, Chris Kanemura and Kevin Yim for enriching our knowledge on what makes life here so ono!

On January 17, The Culinary Institute of the Pacific (CIP) students had the opportunity to cook with Francis and Sheldon on campus at Kapiolani Community College. The students prepared seven dishes from Sheldon’s book Cook Real Hawaii (edited by Francis) and concluded their hands-on cooking session with a talk-story lunch.

We look forward to connecting with you at future Near and Far events.
