Chef, husband, father, cookbook author, fisherman and educator Tylun Pang brings to Maui’s culinary scene a sense of place as he shares with the world Hawai‘i’s food culture at Ko. Named for the Hawaiian word for sugarcane, the restaurant is widely praised for its celebration of the Islands’ multicultural plantation heritage. Readers of Maui No Ka ‘Oi Magazine voted Ko the Gold winner for Best Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine at the 2015 ‘Aipono Restaurant Awards; in 2014, ‘Aipono honored Pang with a Lifetime Achievement Award. What Maui Likes to Eat is Pang’s award-winning compilation of food, history and recipes from Hawai‘i’s plantation days. Proceeds from this cookbook have contributed to scholarships for students at Maui Culinary Academy—as does every ‘Aipono Wine Dinner.
Throughout the year, the ʻAipono Winemaker’s Dinner Series brings the industry’s top winemakers to ʻAipono award-winning restaurants. Dinners are intimate and educational, with the direction of Advanced Sommelier Charles Fredy of Chambers & Chambers Wine Merchants and personal appearances by winery owners and/or representatives.
