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.

    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!

    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鈥檛 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 Cr猫me 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鈥檛 even question it, hire Chef Ed for your next gathering and you won鈥檛 regret it! Bonus- it was also nice to support a fellow Native Hawaiian owned company.
