Chef says, “I hope [my] winning inspires Hawai‘i’s young culinarians to know it’s possible to be raised on a small island, and still compete with top chefs of the culinary world.”
Pasion’s career was inspired by his Filipino parents and their love and respect for tradition. His style combines the flavors of his heritage with the knowledge he gained at Johnson & Wales University’s College of Culinary Arts in Providence, Rhode Island. Pasion brings his sweet local-boy attitude and superb skills to the Ka‘ana Kitchen table, where he showcases his passion for local ingredients and modern cooking techniques.
