I've eaten at Catalyst before and enjoyed Chef/Owner William Kovel’s modern American cuisine crafted from locally grown organic produce and sustainable farm raised meats. I was excited to see what Chef Kovel would do with the King's Hawaiian products.
We started with mimosas and some passed hors d'oeuvres, which each incorporated the King's Hawaiian bread in some way.
Everything was delicious, but the chicken liver mousse and seared fois gras were my favorites. I definitely indulged in seconds (and thirds)!

|White Gazpacho Sips, Marcona Almond, Grape, Crispy King’s Hawaiian Garlic Chips|
|Seared Foie Gras, Braised Cherry, Orange on Toasted King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Bread|
We had an even better treat for dessert, Chef Kovel demonstrated a delicious bread pudding featuring King's Hawaiian bread, topped with vanilla and warm caramel sauce!
The demonstration was so much fun, but the best part was when we were each presented with a our own bread pudding in a cast iron dish.
Thanks to Catalyst and King's Hawaiian for hosting such a great event!
