About Chef Eric's Story: "My Grandfather was a big influence in my love for cooking and food. He loved preparing meals for a large group of people using ingredients mostly sourced from his backyard. As part of the early Filipino migrants of Hawaii, there are stories in his cooking that continues to inspire me and keeps me connected to my Filipino identity. Stories of living and surviving that has made the Filipino-American history its own culture in itself. The ingredients that he included in his meals speaks of perseverance, hard work and love that connects the similarity of his experiences as an early immigrant experiences. I started hosting meals in 2010 with small groups of friends and have grown since then. Several opportunities opened up for me to continue my passion and now have been invited to be the Chef for many community events and banquets. I'm a Real Estate Broker by day and I spend a significant amount of time in the kitchen during my spare time. Through the meals I've been hosting, I have been able to portray my style of cooking, that tells the stories of my childhood and my culture."
