A couple weeks ago my bff and fellow food obsessor, Randi, and I catered our second Well Women event. The whole night was magical! The Well Women community focuses on hosting events that bring north shore women together. This event was a dinner in stunning Pupukea and everything looked straight out of fairytale! The theme of the night focused on authenticity in the way we act and treat other.
For dinner we focused on a Mediterranean/ Greek inspired menu including: lemon chicken, quinoa tabouleh (vegan/ gf) , hummus, naan bread, greens and mint lemonade. We also made an appetizer spread of artisan bread, cheese, berries and chocolate (all of my favorite things). We finished the night off with pumpkin bars and vegan peanut butter protein bites.
I'll be posting some of the recipes on my blog, but also stay tuned for my cookbook that I am working on! I will be including all the recipes in there. :)

All the guests were welcomed with an appetizer table outside. Everything looked so dreamy up in the mountains!
Give me berries and chocolate and I am eternally happy! Fun fact: My ultimate favorite food is a raspberry stuffed with dark chocolate and an almond. If you haven't tried it YOU HAVE TO! So simple, yet life changing.
I couldn't ask for a better partner! Randi is soo good in the kitchen and makes the most amazing healthy recipes!
I could seriously eat Greek food every single day! I love how flavorful and light it is. We had a few gluten free and vegan guests at the dinner, so we modified a few things and made an amazing gluten free vegan quinoa tabouleh! It's basically just quinoa, tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, olive oil, garlic, cilantro, mint, lemon and red wine vinegar.
I loved the table setup! It felt so intimate and cozy. We had some amazing discussions on how to stay true to yourself. We talked about treating people authentically as well as receiving people authentically. It was such a fitting topic! It is so easy to think you know everything about a person based off of social media or a brief interactions, but each person has so many unique layers. I am striving to see people as they truly are.
We all gathered around the table and ate good food and talked. :)
The quinoa tabouleh! Must try.
Overall, it was an amazing night! I will definitely be catering more events in the future. If anyone needs catering for events on Oahu or other Hawaiian islands, **contact me for pricing! **
