Thank you everyone for sharing your thankfulness! I’m thankful for my healthy, happy family, being able to enjoy Maui and turkey sandwich leftovers!
My husband and I finally got to go to a Kupu Maui Dinner! It was a special night for an early Thanksgiving hosted by Hashimoto’s Persimmon Farm. We were happy to see a clear, crisp Kula day at the farm with a great view of the valley. We were led on a personalized farm tour through beautiful persimmon orchards. 50+ people were there and we were happy to get a seat inside with the temperature shooting down at sunset. Upcountry in November is so nice! It actually feels like fall.
Chef Lyndon Honda was at his finest.

Kupu Maui is a pop-up restaurant event. With multiple courses straight from the farm, it’s something not to be missed and tends to sell out immediately.
