Bringing Brother Adam Into The Kitchen

This week, my younger brother, chef Adam Tabura, stops by the Ferguson kitchen.

Winner of the Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network and chef to many A-listers, this guy is pure talent. Growing up on the tiny island of Lanai with no fast-food restaurants, and being poor, he had to be creative. He is one of those guys who can find anything in the fridge and create the ultimate meal.

With diving as one of his favorite hobbies, Chef Adam showed us how to cook one of his favorite fish, Red Snapper Egg Foo Young.

Pair it with the 2012 Hapa Blanc from Kaena Wines and you can’t go wrong!
