Surfing and Grilling Out with a Bodyboarding Legend: Mike Stewart PART 1
Chef Ellard met Big Island local and bodyboarding legend Mike Stewart while surfing at his home break on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Ellard eventually asked Mike to be on his food and travel show, the Culinary Edge TV, and this episode was born. In part one of this two part episode, chef Ellard goes to the Kapu'u Farmer's Market in Pahoa and meets a local farmer, Darcy Nobriga, to arrange a farm tour. Then he meets Mike Stewart in Lapahoehoe on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island. They tour the farm, Double D Ranch Hawai'i, and pick up meat and vegetables for a grill out that day. On this episode we meet pigs, cows, and harvest fresh hearts of palm from Darcy and his wife JoAnna's property. This is as local as food gets here on Hawai'i Island. Stay tuned for part two when Ellard gets to surf with a living legend at a surf break that no longer exists. He cooks up an amazing local feast as the sun sets on this hallowed island location.
Chef Ellard's mission is to bring you authentic local food and travel adventures from around the U.S. and the world. The Culinary Edge TV also highlights the new food consciousness that is emerging about the importance of eating food with quality ingredients. And eating as a way to understand other cultures, connect us back with nature, with ourselves and other human beings.
