Some Honolulu Grubby Information

So it’s been a while since the Honolulu Grub Club dropped some food news or information.  Been busy without a lot time to post stuff, but hopefully as we move through Spring I can drop some posts.  Therefore, without further adieu here are some interesting tidbits.

The Hawaii International Film Festival, which is between April 1 (Friday) to April 7 (Thursday), has three foodie films for your enjoyment.

  • First up, is The Recipe.  “Soybean paste.”  These are the last words of a killer.  Why would  a killer on the run stop and savor a bowl of soybean paste stew (된장 찌개 – doenjang jjigae)? It must be a killer bowl of stew.
  • Japanese film, Patisserie Coin De Rue (translates from French as Pastry Corner), is about a young girl from the country heading to Tokyo to find her fiance.  When she gets to the shop with the film’s name, she finds he no longer works there.  She decides to work there and interacts with a legendary pastissier.
  • Lastly, the Turkish film, Honey (Bal) us about a shy, young boy, Yusuf who adores his beekeeping father. One day his father goes missing and searches for him.

In Honolulu Grub Club news, the rules are up for a first ever See-Food Photo Scavenger Hunt.  Check it out if you want to participate and e-mail us.

This great article about deciding what to bring at BYOB establishments, written by Dabney Gough of Honolulu Weekly, has a great photo from the Off-Premise 4 event.  All the write-ups on Off-Premise 4 by members of the Grub Club can be found at these following sites:

Lastly, our awesome photographer has put up the shots from the event on the Flickr photostream.

A Picture is Worth 1000 Calories?

The New York Times recently published an article about people taking pictures of their food. It is a good thing, so long as it does not get out of hand to be able to share pictures of your meal. It’s a personal experience and that one picture is worth sharing with others as they may want to have the same meal experience as you.

Here at the Grub Club most of our members love taking pictures of their food. Hopefully, we will have more blogs up and running and you can see different perspectives and opinions on food and the dining experience. We also are fortunate to have one of our members as a hobby photographer who captures the beauty of the dishes we order at our dinner events. The pictures are found at Flickr.

However, if you’d like to put up pictures or have suggestions let us know.
