Spicebox Supperclub: Hawaii

ala moana wave

Aloha from Hawaii!  Sorry for the very long absence– we’ve had two supperclubs since our last post!  It seems we’ve been busier eating (and other things) than posting, but we hope to catch up! Before we get to the islands, first, some big news! We were able to share a bit about our Supperclub in a national print publication, a lovely food writing journal called Remedy Quarterly.  Until recently, you could only obtain Remedy Quarterly either online or from specialty culinary booksellers, but now it is available at your local Barnes and Noble. Please check us out in Issue 19: Share, available now!
