Festive Tropical Elegance BY JUDITH KELLOGG, Hawaii/Pacific Islands Chambellan Provincial HAWAII ISLAND'S FAIRMONT Orchid resort sits on the grounds of Kalahuipuaa—a favorite playground for Hawaiian royalty in days of yore. On November 11, seated at one long baronial table, Hawaii Island Bailliage members were certainly treated like royalty. The feast they enjoyed showcased the best of Hawaii's bounty, incorporating flavors that primed the taste buds for the upcoming holidays. Executive Chef Hubert Des Marais pro- vided commentary with each course. He clearly takes pride in creatively balancing and blending flavors. The ali'i mush- room and ahi appetizer was sprinkled with gold leaf, and only Rouen duck would do for the duck course. Bailli Toby King is leading events for his chapter that more than meet the Chaîne's high standards. He is also doing wonders to build his membership. Inducted that evening were Professionnel du Vin David Kirk; Dame de la Chaîne Alethea Lai; and Chevaliers Philibert Kwiatkowski, Michael Petrosian, and Dennis Shannon. Several attendees remarked that an evening at the Fairmont Orchid, with Chef Des Marais in charge, should become an annual bailliage event. One could not ask for a more beautiful setting or better cuisine to kick off the holiday season.
