Chef Mavro “Back from Bora Bora” with Flavors of French Polynesia
new 3-course menu ($59) starts February 23rd
HONOLULU — The exciting French/Polynesian flavors of Bora Bora inspired Chef Mavro to create a special three-course menu, “Back from Bora Bora,” for only $59. The menu includes an irresistible version of Poisson Cru (surprise pairing with the Tahitian beer Hinano), followed by a main course of Pineapple Glazed Pork with umara puree, and finishes with a flavor-packed dessert of Poe of Taro. Of course the $59 includes all the Chef Mavro extras of pre-appetizer, pre-dessert and hand-crafted candies. This special menu is available by reservation from Tuesday, February 23. Chef Mavro restaurant is open Tuesday-Saturday from 6-9:30 p.m. Call 944-4714 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chef Mavro just returned from his first trip ever to French Polynesia that included a short stop in Papeete, Tahiti followed by a stay on the idyllic island of Bora Bora. What caused him to leave his beloved Oahu? An invitation to join the maiden voyage of the very luxurious Seabourn Odyssey on a cruise to Bora Bora and to give a cooking demo and prepare a dinner featuring Hawaii Regional Cuisine. Once there, Mavro had no choice but to soak up the culinary flavors of this idyllic island as return flights to Honolulu are only once a week!
“I told myself if I’m going all the way to French Polynesia I’d better come back with some new flavor ideas! By good luck I stepped off the ship just as a cooking demo of poisson cru and poe dessert was getting underway at the harbor tourism office!” noted Mavro.
