Artist Alissa Hartman (if “Hartman” has two ns, it’s German; if it has one n, it’s British, Alissa said) likes reds (those earthy reds in the octopus and the native upland bird at Art Kaua‘i 2022 are pretty awesome) was doing gallery-sitting duty with artist Stephen Lucas Monday after the Kaua‘i Society of Artists opened its Art Kaua‘i 2022 on Saturday at Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e. Yes, Laurie Ho, it’s worth checking out after Bev Pang comes home from Turkey.
Kaua‘i Community College culinary-arts instructor Chef Steve Nakata was having his hands full during the Pau Hana Market at KGC as he and Amy Chun went through the vendors (welcome back, Dang’s Farm, as they had been on vacation in Thailand!) trying to find “exotic (stuff the students didn’t grow up with)” things like the yellow pod beans and tomatillo (chef said they use it for salsa), and what else? No red daikon and, yes, arugula goes well with the mixed greens. Yes, true farm-to-table in action.
Happy Peace Day! There’s still time to ring a bell for peace (9:05 a.m.). Yes, ulua bells and cowbells count, too!
