The Waioli Tea Room in Manoa Valley is where I get most of my inspiration to create exciting desserts, lunch specials, soups and
High-Tea menu Items where I have been working as a pastry
chef since 2005. I'm 51 now and have been cooking since I turned about 12. I could cook an entire Thanksgiving Dinner by myself at the age of 14. I attended 2 cooking trade schools as well as The University of Alaska Fairbanks Culinary Arts School where I was awarded most outstanding student of the year. I excell at creating exciting food to eat given the right ingredients.
