Recipe Development

“The first cooking class I ever taught was a vegetarian improv cooking class for teenagers. We would get in a giant CSA (community supported agriculture) box and have two hours to prepare everything inside of it, Iron Chef Style, for 40 adults.

Can you imagine? I was so nervous to teach this class, but somehow it all worked out perfectly day after day. I felt myself grow as a chef and really understand the ingredients on another level, without a clear cut plan or recipes to fall back on. 

Since then I get a real rush from taking unknown ingredients and creating something new and unplanned. My methodical organizational skills combined with ability to think outside the box and push boundaries makes recipe development one of my favorite challenges.”

Beautiful Words from Beautiful People

Kyra was invaluable in helping us shape our brand through recipe development. She combined her culinary skills with marketing and business know-how, and the results were innovative and delicious recipes showcasing our spiced wine. In addition to food recipes, she was the lead mixologist for our 100-page recipe book.

In love with our current scent profile? You can thank the boss ladies at More Pleaze. Tule Fog recently teamed up with More Pleaze to bring you our initial line of cozy fragrances. More Pleaze is a catering company out of SF and Hawaii that focuses on wellness retreats and recipe development.

Kyra is a star that fell from the sky and landed on the doorstep of Kuau Store Maui! We feel so lucky to have had her creativity and expertise in our Raw Foods Kitchen. Kyra was our opening raw food chef and was instrumental in many of our product launches. We loved Kyra’s shining star personality and yummy additions (such as Raw Macadamia-Coconut-Almond Superfood Granola with Banana Faux-gurt) to our Raw Foods “grab-n-go” section.
