Rooted in the San Francisco Bay area and California Wine Country, Chef Ken primarily worked in Napa Valley and expanded his repertoire with a five-year exploration of the tropical cuisine of the Caribbean.

Chef Ken is no stranger to Kona. He has traveled to Kona for the past nine years enjoying this vacation destination. This year, he decided to make the move from California to Kona full time. Shortly after arriving, Chef Ken took a position on the Pride of America overseeing the five restaurants on board the ship.

Chef Ken has garnered notable recognition in public cooking demonstrations, numerous radio and television show appearances, media luncheons and newspaper and magazine interviews in both California and the Caribbean.

“Chef Ken is a very accomplished chef and we are proud to welcome him as our Executive Chef. He brings tremendous talent and creative cuisine to our culinary team,” said Huggo’s owner Eric von Platen Luder.

Chef Ken looks forward to making a strong impact on the farm to table culinary scene here in Hawaii. He plans to support traditional Huggo’s classics, while expanding them with a modern twist and ingredients from local farmers. “I respect the tradition established here at Huggo’s, and look forward to updating classic Huggo’s dishes,” said Chef Ken Schloss. “Huggo’s has a strong bond with local fisherman and farmers, and I look forward to furthering those relationships.”
