Surfing and Grilling Out with a Bodyboarding Legend: Mike Stewart PART 2
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 two of this two part episode, Ellard and Mike paddle out for a bodyboarding session at an infamous break called "Dead Trees" at Pohoiki on the Puna Coast of Hawai'i Island. This break has since been covered by lava by the Kilauea Volcano. After their surf session, chef Ellard cooks up the food they got from the Double D Ranch Hawai'i (in Part 1). Brown sugar, sage brined pork chops, local salad with fresh hearts of palm and nasturtiums Mike grew in his families' garden. They also open and coconut and make fresh Sri Lankan coconut sambal. After the meal, Ellard interviews Mike about surfing and food as the sun sets over Pohoiki.
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.
