Aloha from Maine!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone! I'm Nate, Grew up in Hawaii with it's wonderfully eclectic food culture and now find myself in beautiful Portland Maine. aside from the occasional day class at one of the little cooking schools back home or here in Maine I have no formal training. I jokingly say I went to the cooking school of "mom's hip" I just learned being in the kitchen with my mother, grandmother and grilling, smoking and Hawaiian imu cooking with my dad. I'm no professional just the occasional bit of fill in work at a friends restaurant the occasional bit of fill in cooking on a yacht or 2 when I'm not working as a mate of captain (my "real" job) this seems like a great community with a wealth of knowledgable people.

Welcome Nate. Interestingly, I learned to cook from my DownEast Gram and my Maritime Nana. I love Portland and its great restaurant scene!

Aloha No Braddah Nate!

Welcome, e komo mai, this is a GREAT place to interact with 

Professional as well as us home cook folks.

How did you wined up in Maine all the way from Hawaii?

I think we'd all like to hear that story.

I hope that you'll drop in to CT often, there's not too many Hawaiians.
