Here is where it gets interesting:

it was a full three/four days until we realized...there was no meat. She cooked so well that we did not even realize we were doing Vegan! She knew people on each island that had "stuff". she would take the "stuff" and create "MAGIC". Linda and I had the best boat cuisine that I have ever had. She had a 1000 dollar budget for 4/10 days, she told us she spent ~350 bucks...YEP, keep the tip.

She was a MASTER! Eggplant mousse, layered with tomato, covered w/béchamel. with texture of a cloud!
This is what the cuisine on T37Chefs boat is like.

On Haleakula we eat hot dogs...(Hebrew national or Nathans of course,) We do make our own baked beans with black beans and real molasses and smoke turkey,
