The Big Island of Hawaii is very fortunate to have one of the best chefs in the world living on this island and I feel honored to have met him personally.  Celebrity Chef Sam Choy lives in on the Kona side of the Big Island of Hawaii and recently I had the opportunity to meet up with him over on Oahu.
