Fresh BOX: Local Meals at Your Doorstep
July 20, 2018
With the high shipping costs from the mainland, we almost missed out on the meal kit trend here in Hawaii. That was until fresh BOX came along. The Oahu-based company offers a weekly box filled with ingredients and instructions to make three healthy meals for two. The ingredients are 90% locally sourced, and Kunoa is happy to be one of those local suppliers. We love to see the creative recipes they come up with for our meat. (Flat iron steak over soba noodles with local veggies and wasabi soy dressing, anyone?) Here’s more about how FreshBOX got started.

Put Some Pepper on It
May 23, 2017
We’ve come a long way from caveman days* when fire was new, and a plain, cooked piece of meat was a revelation. Humans have learned how to make meat taste even better by rubbing, marinating, brining and glazing our meat with all sorts of spices and herbs. Yet one of the of the most enduring spices to pair with beef is humble black pepper.
