Patrick Callarec, executive chef, Aulani, brings 30 years of culinary savoir faire to the new resort’s dining experience. Having worked in Hawai`i before, he was thrilled at the prospect of building a menu for the new resort from the ground up with the Islands’ generous array of local products. “To create this type of contemporary cuisine on an island where you have an incredible abundance of seafood and all the local farmers is great,” the French-born chef says. “It allows you to be very creative and use some of the freshest ingredients in the world.”

Savor some of the sweet flavors of the South Seas with this mouthwatering recipe for Pineapple-Coconut Cobbler. This delicious dessert from Aulani’s `AMA`AMA restaurant blends the rich creaminess of coconut and the tart sweetness of pineapple—Hawai`i’s signature fruits.
