Mohala Farms Hosts Makahiki Dinner

A Waialua farm is playing host to a smorgasbord of fresh dishes this Saturday to start off the makahiki-Thanksgiving season.

Mohala Farms invites 24 guests to dine on a menu of its harvest, tour the organic farm and “enjoy the fresh country air” at 6 p.m. Saturday in Waialua — just off Thompson’s Corner where Kaukaonahua Road meets Farrington Highway.

On the menu are roasted kabocha squash soup with kale and coconut milk, with carrot sesame crackers; black bean and kalo burger on arugula with tomato and cucumber slices and tropical fruit salsa; mushroom and chive risotto, cole slaw with pomegranate and hazelnuts; breadfruit pumpkin-spiced pie, and chilled Jamaican hibiscus tea.

Tickets cost $50, and proceeds support the building of a certified kitchen on site.
