We are so happy to welcome our new General Manager, Chris Gampon to the Timbers Kaua‘i at Hōkūala family. Chris was born and raised on Kaua‘i, and joined the team in March of this year. Please join us in a warm aloha and welcome to Chris as we learn more about him in this month’s Talk Story.
Following his tenure as Chef de Cuisine, Chef Alex’s promotion to the role of Executive Chef promises to further enhance Hualani’s reputation for delivering innovative, farm-to-table dining. Marked by a vision for celebrating local flavors, global influences, and the joy of shared dining experiences, Timbers Kaua‘i at Hōkūala anticipates an exciting new chapter for Hualani’s restaurant.
Every Spring, our Timbers Kauaʻi ʻOhana ask when the Poisson Cru will be back on the menu at Hualani’s. Wild Pacific Skipjack tuna is tossed with Hawaiian sea salt, the juice of Tahitian limes from the Farm at Hōkūala, coarsely chopped local vegetables, and freshly squeezed coconut cream
Mandarins are some of the sweetest fruits of the orange family and they are thriving in the sunshine in the organic fruit orchard at The Farm at Hōkūala. These easy to peel, almost seedless and ultra-juicy citrus fruits are the inspiration behind Hualani’s latest freshly squeezed cocktail creation… the Mandarin Gin Fizz!
The Farm at Hōkūala features a stunning medley of organic greens, vegetables, tropical fruits and edible flowers, and provides Hualani’s with an abundance of fresh ingredients. Among the most cocktail-friendly of The Farm’s latest harvest is liliko‘i, otherwise known as passion fruit.
Thank you to Hualani’s Bartender Matt and Food & Beverage Director, Cory Dotario, for taking our Pom Your Tini (Pomegranate Martini) from a dreamy pink to a Viva Magenta to celebrate the PANTONE Color of the Year 2023 (PANTONE 18-1750.)
