The Grand Naniloa Resort is the beautiful backdrop of this seasons Cooking Hawaiian Style kitchen. We get messages and emails every week asking if we filmed in front of a Green screen. I guess Hawaiiʻs beauty is just that perfect. The resort has gone through a massive renovation. I love the vibe of the rooms, the decor and the Kim Taylor Reece touch of hula throughout the property. That also goes for the new restaurant Hula Hulas that has live music and one of the best waterfront views in Hilo. Chef Marcus Lage has put together a great menu to go with their custom-made drinks. This week he shares their popular Paina Pot Stickers with us.
