Ocean-view fine dining: a meal with a new friend!

Kihei, Hawaii, United States


I am a food and travel writer who cooked professionally for seven years.
Not only do I know everything - and I mean EVERYTHING - about where to eat and what to do while here on Maui, but I can enlighten you over a fantastic meal.
I can accommodate food allergies as well as vegan, vegetarian, and even raw diets. Eaters of everything are in good hands too!
I was an AirBNB host for over a year, but can't host overnight in my current digs. I miss meeting people from all over the country and world!
