Island Inspiration - Week 4 - Hawaii Inspired Food in Pictures

We spent 2 amazing weeks in Hawaii a few years ago visiting the Kauai and the North shore of Oahu. It is so wonderful to come back to beautiful Kauai, my favorite Hawaiian Island. This laid back, peaceful piece of paradise has a little something for everyone. The rough, rugged beauty of the Nā Pali coast, it's sometimes inhospitable waves crashing against the rocks and caves, sometimes revealing wonderful beaches. The Waimea canyons (aka mini Grand Canyon) with its beautiful shades red and green, waterfalls, rivers and streams still cutting and carving the rocks. The Kilauea Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge providing a beacon to boats out at sea and serving as the gateway to the beautiful North shore. The breathtaking beaches of the Kauai North shore - Anini, Lumahi, Hideaway and Ke'e to name a few of my favorites with the backdrop of the green green hills. The cascading waterfalls of Wailua with its lush fern grotto and tropical paradise gardens. And of course one of my greatest passions, the wonderful fresh delicious produce crafted into the most delicious recipes.I have been sharing several of these recipes this month. Just to give you a flavor of some of the other wonderful dishes I have made, take a culinary journey with me to Hawaii through pictures.
