Something New event: Ed Morita’s shochu desserts


So you know that Something New is a food fest centered on nine crazy chefs challenged with nine local ingredients. Well, some are crazier than others.

Here, Frolic’s own Ed Morita, pastry chef at the new Off the Wall Craft Desserts & Kitchen on King Street, lays out what you can expect from his Something New ingredient: Namihana Hawaiian Shochu, distilled from locally grown sweet potatoes on Oahu’s North Shore.

More deets and ticket link right below the video. And now, here’s Ed:

Something New brings together top chefs concocting new dishes using challenge ingredients from local farmers. Plus, look for new libations from Jack Daniel’s, Lanikai Brewing Co. and Red Bull and clear pours from Ocean Vodka. Entertainment by Taimane Gardner, spinning by DJ Super CW.
