About

I specialize in small upscale catering events and private chef services. I like to get into the mindset and expectations of the client for the event so I can create and customize a menu that exceeds their standards, but stays within price points. Kuoha Culinary prides itself in being one of the only catering companies that has one chef handle all facets of food production from start to finish and is on-site at all events handling food personally to ensure quality food, service, and guest satisfaction. At the end of the day the client needs to be happy with the service I provide, if not I cannot accept pay for a job that isn't done well. I am all about getting the "Wow" from my clients.

You "will" go back for seconds!

We booked Chef Ed a full year before our wedding (tried tot do it earlier, but we were too eager). He was very conscious of our budget during our first few email exchanges, and really rolled with the punches for us. The oven at our venue broke down (as did one of the fridges and freezers), and we were able to rent one from him.

The food was absolutely phenomenal! One guest told us they have never more than "ok" with wedding food and they went back for seconds, a compliment I don't think can go higher.

My husband and I also had our first meal alone together and he brought the food to us, something we did not expect at all.

You cannot do better than Chef Ed and his team!

Highlight of the night

Wow, Ed Kuoha is incredible. We had our wedding at a house on Oahu and Kuoha culinary knocked it out of the park. It was insane. We did lobster tails, steak, ahi, salad, asparagus and the most divine mashed potatoes ever etc
It was by far a highlight of the night. Every person mentioned how incredible the food was. Not to mention the price wasn鈥檛 outrageous either. I pulled the trigger based on his reviews from other sites and I鈥檓 glad I listened. 10/10 experience.

Customizable Great Tasting Menu based on Budget

My husband and I chose Ed to take care of our catering needs for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we've ever made! What first caught our attention was the fact that he creates a customized menu based off budget. When we gave us a preliminary menu and quote, it exceeded our expectations. We even got to taste the items and it was soooo bomb! We literally looked forward to it on our wedding day. Ed was also such a pleasure to work with. He even replies super fast which was greatly appreciated given the anxiousness of planning a wedding. He was patient, especially when I had millions of questions and were indecisive at times. Even so, he showcased his expertise and assisted us with our questions. After working with Ed and seeing how he does things, I don't see myself looking elsewhere for catering needs. Thank you Ed for being our caterer for our special day and dealing with us for the past 2 years!
