Moana Masters Series Continues with Easter-Themed Confections

March 30, 2019 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

The popular Moana Masters Series hops from the kitchen to the confectionary in April with a Spring-themed pastry class.  The Moana Surfrider’s Pastry Chef Carmen Montejo shares step-by-step instructions, recipes and tips on how to make colorful and insta-worthy macarons and chocolate ganache fillings on Saturday, April 13 at noon – 2 p.m.  at the Moana Surfrider’s oceanfront Beachhouse at the Moana – Grand Salon.

The experience starts with a cocktail mixing demonstration of “Lady Moana” a lavender black tea-infused cocktail by beverage specialist Dan Fullick paired with a chocolate tasting that includes dark, white and milk chocolate. Montejo follows this with her demonstration on how to make a basic macaron and shares tips on various flavorings and colorings of this sweet meringue-based confection.

Following the demonstration, guests will enjoy an elevated Afternoon Tea service which includes savory bites, sweet treats, and the Beachhouse chopped salad.  Guests will also be treated to a glass of Gerard Bertrand Thomas’s Jefferson Cremant with strawberries and marscapone crème.  Service is complete with a scoop of green tea and lemongrass sorbet – a perfect ending to another Moana Masters class.

Also included in the class will be discussions on the basics of pairing food & beverage.  The monthly featured mixologist will also include information on the region and background stories of the beverages being served during the session.

Each guest who attends this special Moana Masters class will receive a special goodie-bag filled with teas, Moana honey and recipes.

“The Moana Masters classes have been created to simplify cooking and engage with our local and visiting guests by providing them with direction and knowledge to help them recreate their own recipes at home for family and friends” says Ryan Loo, director of food and beverage at the Moana Surfrider.

Moana Masters Cooking classes are held monthly on a Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at the Moana Surfrider’s Beachhouse at the Moana.  Cost is $100 per person including gratuity; plus taxes and Box Office fees.  Recommended attire is pants and closed toe shoes.  Tickets are available at Honolulu Box Office.  Includes complimentary four-hour valet parking or self-parking at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani parking garage.
