Every great cooking show has an even more amazing kitchen staff. Our awesome staff is lead by our Cooking Hawaiian Style Chef, Kino Carrillo. There is a lot that goes on behind the camera with prepping all the guests ingredients, pre-cooking dishes, and timing out recipes.
The young and talented Chef Kino has been on our set for 8 seasons and his experience is invaluable to our shows success. Chef Kino comes out from behind the scene to share his ono and shrimp tempura recipe with us.
