Event Wrap-Up: A Mixed-Up Meal in Madison 0

What delicious fun we had in Madison. Last Sunday we shared a kitchen with the Underground Food Collective and The Glass House Supper Club for an intimate dinner for twenty held at Bradbury’s Coffee downtown. It was a convergence of three supper clubs, and how many cuisines were represented in the food, we cannot be [...]

Hapa Kitchen Goes West – Mid, That Is 1

Happy New Year and hello, hello, hello again! It’s been a long holiday break for the Hapa Kitchen team, but we’re heading into February with a number of events lined up in the coming weeks. First off, we’re thrilled to be collaborating with our friends at Underground Food Collective with a dinner in their hometown [...]

Hapa Harvest at Whisk & Ladle Supper Club 1

This Friday, we’re excited to be cooking in the kitchen of our good friends at Whisk & Ladle Supper Club. Our collaborative, “guest chef” meal will make use of the plentiful vegetables of early fall, though of course with many hapalicious twists. Focusing on seafood and classic French inspiration, here are the courses we will [...]

Event Wrap-Up: The Luau 0

We threw our second collaboration with BKLYN Yard and Finger on the Pulse last Friday, and for it, we roasted two suckling pigs (and lots of pork butt) for the first time! Thanks to everyone who attended, ate, helped out, wrote about it (like these blogs), took photos (like Nicky Digital), and put on leis, [...]

The Luau Menu! 2

This little piggy went to the market, this little piggy… got stuffed into our fridges and soon, a La Caja China to roast at BKLYN Yard!
It’s almost here, the Hapa Kitchen Luau, with the fabulous Finger on the Pulse DJs. With Brooklyn’s own Sixpoint Craft Ales, local organic vegetables from Garden of Eve Farm, and [...]

August 28th at BKLYN Yard: We’re Having a Luau! 4

Oh, where did the summer go? Hapa Kitchen has been busy making “hapa tapas” for a couple private rooftop and beachside parties. But we’re back in Brooklyn, and teaming up with our friends Finger on the Pulse and Mean Red Productions again for a Hawaiian-inspired menu and pig roast at The Yard!

Cook-Offs and Indian-Caribbean dinner on the horizon 1

We’re cooking off like crazy over the next week or so, and bringing our local food with an Asian flair to two cook-offs for good food causes. The first, on July 18th, is the Great Hot Dog Cook-Off, a benefit for City Harvest. We’re debuting the Hapa Dog! Then the following Tuesday, July 21, we’re [...]

When Paris met Shanghai 0

Last Tuesday we hosted a late-June dinner for thirty in a quaint Brooklyn apartment. French and Chinese fusion was the theme of the meal, with duck from D’Artagnan, local organic veggies from Sang Lee Farms and wines from Wolffer Estate Winery. A recipe for one of the canapes is at Not Eating Out in New [...]

“Paris of the East” dinner is June 23rd 0

Join us for another evening of East-West eats, meet-the-farmer discussion and neighborly company at our next dinner, “Paris of the East.” A playful nod to the decadent and Western-influenced Shanghai of the 1930s and 40s, we will be serving five courses and cocktail-hour canapes inspired by French and Chinese cuisines. Dressing up is not discouraged.
