Big Chefs, Little Chefs a big hit


Big Chef Masaharu Morimoto and Little Chef Jeremiah “JJ” Valeroso pose at the Oct. 28 Big Chefs Little Chefs event at the Yokouchi Family Estate in Wailuku. The event benefited the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui, with Morimoto donating a privately cooked dinner for 10 people to be prepared and served in the Presidential Suite at the Andaz Maui at Wailea. The resort is where his Morimoto Maui is located. In addition, he led the winning team of little chefs. Valeroso, who appeared on an episode of “Chopped Jr” on TV, was a team member.
