"I'm forever grateful. Whatever happens to me, my heart is always with Touch A Heart. It's my puʻuhonua, the city of refuge, a safe haven. In old Hawaiian days, it was the place of safety, the place that saves your life. There's just so much more that goes into cooking than just food—knowledge, safety, aloha, consistency and love gotta come together to make one good dish. I've managed to accomplish every single goal—short- and long-term—because somebody believed in me."
