Introducing @modohawaii, delicious little glazed baby-teething-ring shaped goodness! They’re donuts made with mochi and they’re absolutely amazing! The flavors I got were cookies and cream, blueberry, and li hung mui (Chinese Sour Plum). The blueberry was pretty good and had nice fruity frosting. The cookies and cream were by far the most popular and for good reason. They were delicious! However, I was sleeping on the LHM! I hadn’t tried them before and only got 2, but wow they were not what I expected. The powder was straight up sour, like Sour Patch Kids, but the tart flavor actually brought out more of the sweetness of the donut. It was an interesting combination and I wish I got more.
Sadly, Modo is almost done with their pop up shop and are headed back to Hawaii soon 😭. Please come back soon so I can get more donuts!

Competition of the Green Papaya Salads 🔪☀️💚 When a significant soul who was at the very first cooking class you ever taught, and then so reliably she has been at the plethora of classes that have followed, saves all the recipes from years gone by and then she finds a green papaya while out shopping for the dinner you will be preparing together ....well that means we have to challenge the old recipe against one of the more recent variations to see how the chef’s mindset, palate and cooking practices can shift. It’s fascinating how we can hold on to those really impactful recipes that encompass so much more than just ingredients on a plate - in both mental & in print form, we grasp those recipes that radiate a story, an experience of interacting with others in the rituals of cooking and sharing a moment in time together. Food comes and goes.... It’s the experience of the recipe’s story through time that is so very valuable to this human existence 🌺✌️🌀. In the round bowls: Hawaiian Green Papaya Salad - recipe written in 2007 for a Hawaii themed class taught here in Bonita Sprigs; I learned this simplistic recipe from the local guys I worked with in Kauai. A staple in any house hold on the island and certainly on the Beach House menu (probably still is even today.) In the square dish: Thai Green Papaya Salad - recipe written in 2015 (note: had to omit the peanut sauce which should be on this dish, still yummy without but must always have that sauce for future incarnations).
