    Could you please let me know when your next public dinner will be. Saw you at the museum today and you were witty, sensible, fast and honest. Thank you.

    Hi Kabui,

    I wish you even more success toward getting most of us back to natural healthy dining! Having known you through the years past, I really admire what you have done with your passion for nature, culture and organics. I remember a day, many years ago when you served us a very wholesome quinoa and bean dish before quinoa became mainstream! As well as the vegetable and green gardens around your home.

    Keep it up my friend and much success!

    Please let me know when you are planning your next dinner and how much it would cost. Do you have dinners at your garden or do they have to be hosted by an organization? Thanks so much. I heard you on The State of Things today and was intrigued. Sounds like you’re doing wonderful work.
