— CHEF JUSTINE MA —
With careers in education, culinary and event planning, it only made for Justine to create her own cooking school here on the Big Island of Hawaii. This dream started when she was living in Italy as a school principal during the week and by the weekend she was mentoring under the exec chef of Turne Ristorante. Realizing her passion for food and education, Justine received her culinary degree from the Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC and went on to work alongside the nations best chefs. She was a regular sous chef at the James Beard Foundation, known for curating boutique events for major companies (like lululemon, SELF Magazine, Condé Nast, etc), collaborating as Food Editor for NY Yoga Life Magazine. Now she teaches farm to table cuisine in-person and online.

We couldn’t be more excited to launch our cooking classes and your safety and comfort is our utmost priority.
Classes are being held at limited capacity in an open, outdoor kitchen, so please make sure you are healthy, comfortable, and confident in sharing a communal space with others. Also, this is a hands-on class and you will be doing all your own cooking under the guidance of a professional chef.
— REFUND POLICY —
Due to limited seating and the upfront costs of food and it’s preparation, our cooking classes and events are final and non-refundable. Please note that our refund policy is firm, especially through the Covid 19 pandemic. If for some reason you choose not to attend—you can always send someone else in your place, but refunds cannot be issued. Alternatively, you may reach out to us, and we will try our best to sell the seats on your behalf. If were able to do so, a future credit to a scheduled cooking class will be issued.
