Celebrating Le Canard BY PATRICIA LEE, Dame de la Chaîne AT MW RESTAURANT on November 21, 2015, Honolulu Bailliage members celebrated the centuries-old tradition of preparing confit de canard . The event opened with Co-Owner/Maître Rôtisseur Wade Ueoka giving a step-by-step demonstration of how to prepare duck confit. Dinner was held in MW's private dining room, conveniently equipped with a demonstration kitchen. The food preparation was also projected onto a television monitor. Attendees were delighted to savor a classic French dish rarely found in restaurants in Hawaii. The reception featured a wide array of delectable hors d'oeuvres, including, in the spirit of southwest France, foie gras. Vice Echanson Roberto Viernes, MS, selected the evening's wines. A medley of strawberry treats created by Co-Owner/ Pastry Chef/Maître Rôtisseur Michelle Karr-Ueoka capped the elegant meal. Chef Wade and Pastry Chef Michelle are a gifted husband-and-wife team whose impressive culinary experience is reflected in their outstanding, inven- tive cuisine. Members expressed their appre- ciation to Bailli Kimi Matar, who orchestrated every detail of the event to ensure its great success. Bailli Matar presented Chefs Wade and Michelle with mementos of appreciation—a bottle of Krug champagne and a Chaîne plaque.
