Food from the Magical Island of Kauai

This summer I was fortunate enough to be able to arrange a trip to the magical island of Kauai, Hawaii. My journey would not have been the same without the amazing people I spent time with, but the food was also definitely a major highlight!

Please enjoy a little gallery of some of the delicious, local, organic food I enjoyed while I was visiting this beautiful place.


Rolinea fruit


The inside of a rolinea: it tastes like lemon and mango custard.


Durian


Beautiful papayas


Banana meets papaya


Avocados


Best shave ice ever with ice cream and gummi worms




Sugarcane


Pineapple


Starfruit pancakes


Cracking coconuts at Hanalei Farmers' Market


Acai with granola and banana


Pita pizzas with local cherry tomatoes, goat cheese and basil


Kale was a staple the entire time I was there. Officially my favourite vegetable.

A little veggie dish I cooked up

I cannot recommend visiting this island enough, even if only for the glorious food!

Aloha :)
