If we had to pick a "favorite celebrity chef", the answer might just be Sam Choy. He's a lot more famous in the Hawaiian Islands than he is even on the West Coast of the US, probably as a result of his cooking shows not being syndicated outside of Hawaii.
We make it a point to see him when he's in town each year, and Draeger's cooking school is a regular stop. His classes are entertaining and his food is both good and grounded.
The food this time was a bit lighter than normal, one of the better menus.
