Throughout the year, Chef Mavro changes his menu to match the season’s freshest ingredients. I got to try his latest fall menu offerings recently, which are always spectacular (with or without wine). This time, though, was a little more special: I got to meet his new chef de cuisine, Jeremy Shigekane.
Shigekane is young (and looks younger) but has about 10 years of mainland experience under his belt and was most recently chef de cuisine at Hoku’s at the Kahala Resort. As it turns out, all of my nieces know him from different walks of life, and when I posted his photo, they were all so thrilled to see him doing well. Chef Mavro is thrilled, too — he had been without a chef de cuisine for a long time, and had been working almost double time to fill that position. “Just when I thought I was going to die, Jeremy came along,” he laughed.
After Shigekane showed us how he makes his pomegranate-teriyaki sauce for their Wagyu, we had dinner.
