Hawaii Farmers United Hosts It's First Locavore Cook-Off Contest

The highlight of the March Hawaii Farmers United meeting was the new Locavore Cook-Off Contest. With some great judging by Chef Justin Pardo of Market Fresh Bistro and fellow judge Mellisa Panzirini, as well as the wonderful cooks that enters some great food, not only did three people win great prizes from Whole Foods, Down To Earth, Hawaiian Moons and Edible Hawaiian Islands Magazine, but we all got to partake of the wonderfully delicious pot luck after the contest and before one of our best meetings with around 100 people in attendance.

For some pictures and video of the contest portion, visit my Magic Maui Farms website and leave any comments or suggestion here or on Magic Maui Farms about what you think we can do to make the meetings even more informative and fun, tough shot considering how fun and educational they already are,

Maui and Arizona Come Together For Some Music

Johnny & Jim
Sitting in front of Ross's while waiting to give his son a ride, Mr. Johnny Felipe, a name I've heard since I was a teen, was playing harmonica with his makeshift boombox/guitar pickup and a harmonica.

Before long Mr Jim Doeden, a visitor from Arizona happened up and borrowing Johnny's guitar joined Johnny in some impromptu entertaining for the people lucky enough to be around and graciously allowed me to film them.

Jim Doeden is a performing musician and has recorded CD's back home. Anyone interested can contact me and I can put you together. As for Johnny, you can catch him many days out front of Ross's just enjoying a tune or two waiting for his son. For video on the two visit my Magic Maui Music blog at
