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.

Ono food and excellent service
Let me start off by saying my husband and I are very picky when it comes to food. We were a little nervous hiring a private chef to cook for our gathering based solely on reviews and not having a set menu to choose from. Chef Ed gives you recommendations based on your food preference and budget. Chef Ed was quick to respond and was communicative throughout the entire process. He arrived to our event on time and headed straight to the kitchen without me even knowing (I was busy getting ready). He was very professional in his presentation, had an explanation for each dish, and gave everyone a menu. Service was excellent! It was as if we were eating at a fine dining restaurant but in a comfortable atmosphere. Every single dish was so delicious and we all couldn’t stop thinking about his food for days! If we could only pick three of our favorites it would be the Kabayaki Bacon, Ahi Tataki, and the Lilikoi Crème Brulee Tarts. He provided us with more than enough food; we were full before the entrees came out and there were tons of leftovers to enjoy the next day. Don’t even question it, hire Chef Ed for your next gathering and you won’t regret it! Bonus- it was also nice to support a fellow Native Hawaiian owned company.Sent on 05/01/2021

Your search for the best catered food on Oahu stops here.
When we made a list of the top five things we wanted for our wedding, delicious food was at the top of both my wife and I’s list. After a lot of research and back, we found Chef Ed. Unfortunately, we did not live on Oahu yet, so we had to book Chef Ed without getting a chance to taste his food. This was one of the best decisions we made. All of his reviews are correct: his food is authentic and delicious. The night before our wedding, we had him drop off catering for a pool party/luau for about 40 people. He was on time, with everything ready to go,. He got things set up quickly and was out of the way before we were! He also catered our wedding feast, making sure he had enough staff on hand that everything ran smoothly. Our guests could not stop talking about the food. Everything was of high quality and tasted BEYOND amazing. He also had some really good vegetarian options for our guests who didn’t eat meat and incorporated it into the menu so they didn’t feel like they were missing out. I would jump at any opportunity to eat Chef Ed’s delicious and well thought out meals again. Overall, hiring Chef Ed was a great experience and I would definitely recommend him.Sent on 09/09/2019
