Culinary Adventures at Mauna Lani

Taste your way through the Island of Hawai’i

Centuries ago, the land area known as Kalāhuipua'a belonged to King Kamehameha the Great. As the sacred fishponds– located adjacent to the Great Lawn– teemed with mullet and milkfish, King Kamehameha frequently feasted on the bounty which Kalāhuipua'a provided. To this day, Mauna Lani honors Hawai’i as our muse by curating indelible and out-of-the-box moments that celebrate our island home. From culinary collaborations with renowned chefs and eateries to specialty events emblematic of Hawaii’s beauty and culture, may we cultivate bespoke and everlasting memories in the sanctuary that is Kalāhuipua'a.

Chef Talent | Helen Hong, Executive Pastry Chef at Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection

Helen Hong sparked her lifelong passion for all things culinary in her grandmother’s kitchen in South Korea. After moving to Los Angeles as a young adult, Hong refined her natural knack for pastry and dessert-making at Michelin-star restaurant, Providence. From French pastry school in Chicago to an eight-year stint at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, Hong finds joy in flavor-matching desserts while meticulously perfecting the appearance of her dishes. When Hong joined the Mauna Lani ‘ohana as a Resident Pastry Chef in 2020, she instantly took a liking to the abundance of fresh and local ingredients found throughout the island. Her most memorable dessert? A flourless chocolate cake with coconut lime sorbet, complete with dehydrated chocolate and lime foam.

From interactive cooking classes in the Francis H.
