Speaking strictly as a baker, it doesn’t hold true that Sunday is a day of rest, especially if a wedding cake has to be delivered. And when you know that a xmas party is on at the end of the day, waking up early for work seems less painful. I love doing weddings in the islands because most brides will naturally opt for a tropically themed cake – so easy and quick to put together given the fact that Hawaii is all about tropical flowers! This event in particular was held at an old plantation-style estate which fronted the ocean – stunning location, and complete with a view of the morning surfers out on the water.
My boss employer also works for the fire department and that is how I got the invite to the feast. These guys don’t mess around when it comes to food. For all you greedy gourmets of roast pig, I’ve got some photos. (The crispy skin was to die for!)
It’s a man’s meal: patele stew, roast pork, smoked meat. Corn, salad, and white rice to fill up the blank spaces.
