With a culinary career spanning over four decades taking him throughout Asia, South America and across the United States as a chef with Westin Hotels, Chef Pang returned home to Hawaiʻi in 1996 to lead the culinary programs at Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea, Maui.
Pang oversees the luxury resort’s five dining venues and one market, banquet and catering as well as, developed the concept for the resort’s signature restaurant – Kō. Chef Pang was a perfect addition to our Cooking Hawaiian Style family because of his commitment to buying local produce and supporting Maui agriculture.
