CHEF SAMBRANO Food Articles Video Recipes



Monday, March 23, 2015


ALOHA FROM MAUI! All you foodies out there, listen up, from here on out, it's all about the comfort foods that's totally local Hawaiian style, which means I'll cover foods from all over the world, because Hawaii is the melting pot of the world and yes, local foods can have something Euro, Asian, South American too. It's all of the ABOVE BABY!

I'm working on a cooking video series, yeah it's for profit. What the heck did you think? But anyhooo this is what I'll be doing in the Chef Sambrano line of cooking videos, books, and everything cooking.

I'll be working with my old video producer from Akaku TV on Maui, Peter King, and I'll be filming some of the best and most popular plate lunches on the planet doing it my style.

I'm also going to have a book published hopefully this year tentatively no title, and well... it's about short stories that has a foodie theme. It's just for shits and laughs really, kind of mindless stuff. But my style is just letting loose, having fun, I'm kind of the underground foodie guy, non commercial, totally politically incorrect, and people love it. Well, I'll be clean, I won't offend anyone, it could hurt sales.

I still do personal cooking for couples, I don't do huge gigs, I like to focus on cooking for lovers in love. Bigger gigs.. maybe. But just check me out on this blog once a day, and see what is happening. As far as the cooking video is concerned, it'll be fun to watch, and you'll learn how to cook Hawaiian Style Local Plates in your own home, and much of the ingredients can be bought in most supermarkets nationwide.

Hope to be here tomorrow or sooner!

If you like getting high on weed, but don't like the smell of smoke, because it gets in your hair and shit like that... are a FOODIE.... and you love raw fish, well junior here's a simple recipe for STONY POKE (Po- keh)

So how do you make Stony Poke? It's very simple, here are the ingredients and it's very easy to make.


1 lb. of cubed Ahi tuna
1 cup of marijuana olive oil or more*****
1 tbsp. grated ginger
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. sesame oil
1/2 cup of low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup chopped round onion
1 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
Rock Salt to taste
Red chili flakes to taste
1/4 cup chopped green onions to garnish

1. First you'll need to make your marijuana olive oil.
a. Makes 2 cups. ..2 cups of olive oil
b. 1 cup of smashed good quality marijuana leaves, and a few dried buds
c. Heat up olive oil in a sauce pan over medium high heat
d. Add in the marijuana leaves and buds
e. Cook the olive oil and marijuana over low heat, extracting the oils. Cook for about 20 minutes, off the heat and let sit for about 1 hour. Strain out the leaves and buds, the oil should get darker in color and the aroma changes. Let the oil sit for another couple of hours and stir.

2. Place the cubed raw ahi in the mixing bowl. Add in 1 cup of the marijuana olive oil, or more if you want, but start with 1 cup. Massage the oil into the cubes, let this rest in the refrigerator for about 1 hour covered with foil or plastic wrap. 

3. Remove form refrigerator, and add in the rest of the ingredients one by one, adjust the flavors with more soy sauce, or other ingredients. Serve cold.

* Note, the quality of marijuana affects the outcome of how strong the buzz will be. This recipe was rather mild, not too strong, but it had a mellowing effect. Experiment with the oil, if you want you can use another type of salad oil. You can use infused fats from bacon also to give the ahi a bacon taste.

In this blog I'll give you something to try, a side dish we in Hawaii love, it's rich, tasty, and is a must with any plate lunch. Macaroni salad, however this one has some spice!

But first this post is brought to you from the folks at A Hui Hou Storage in Lahaina, Maui.

Locals use Best Foods Real Mayonnaise for this dish most of the time.

1 lb. elbow macaroni, boiled to package instructions, drained in cold water and set aside.
1/2 cup minced round sweet onions
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can of crab meat
2 boiled eggs shredded
1/2 cup carrots shredded
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Spicy Mayo
(Make extra if the macaroni dries out)

3 1/2 cups Best Foods Real Mayonnaise
1 lemon squeezed of juice
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. curry powder
3 tbsp. Sambal Oelek

1. Mix the macaroni noodles with the onions, celery, crab meat, eggs, carrots, salt and pepper.
2. In a mixing bowl, mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegar, curry powder, and sambal oelek.
3. Combine macaroni mixture with mayonnaise mixture, add more or make more mayonnaise mixture if you want, this is just a simple guideline.

You can top some green salad with this salad, or you can even put some delicious ahi poke on top of some of this and you can have a rich poke. Good luck with your mac salad making!
