"Good Food Hanalei was the perfect choice to cater our wedding day brunch.
Chef Lala and her team were so professional, fun and full of aloha.
From planning the menu with Lala creative input and ideas to day of service and clean up....we didn't have to worry about a thing or lift a finger.
The food was so much more spectacular than I had imagined. It was displayed wonderfully for our guests and tasted so delicious!
All the guests were raving about how amazing the food was! The chicken and waffle sliders were a big hit.... I wish I had some right now!
Thank you to Lala, Moana and Robin for making our special day even more special! "

"During this wonderful couple of weeks in Hanalei we enjoyed two of the most amazing food experiences thanks to Lala!
From the menu, to the presentation, to the service and most importantly to the freshness and flavor of each offering, our family truly enjoyed each and every bite!
The other special treat is the opportunity to get to know Lala, her passion for food and how she shares her family's Hawaiian traditions and flavors with your family.
We look forward to spending many more memorable and enjoyable evenings with Lala and her fantastic farm to table creations!

"Lala and Josh made our trip something special. Our 2 dinners with them were the best of any we experienced on the island."

"Lala was shining and extremely professional. Our meal with her was superb and she definitely showed us the spirit of Aloha along with a great meal. Her assistant was charming as well. Her meal was done ahead of schedule, too!!"
... Just wanted to send along a very special "Thank You" for your recommendation of LaLa Gorman as a personal chef for our family reunion. After interviewing several chefs that were a bit apprehensive about cooking for a group of eighteen (all needed additional helpers) Lala's response was "no problem, easy breezy". Her engaging personality and her perpetual smile were as welcome as her creative gifts in preparing meals that were simply scrumptious ... and always plenty extra for the following day!
Her services were especially reasonable and she even suggested some night spots for the younger members of our group (who were given complimentary drinks when they mentioned her name ... nice to know a local celebrity :) My sister writes, "Lala was AWESOME! Please forward this to her. I loved the feeling of ALOHA she carries. What a great person AND chef!! Love, Jan Beissert Gray"
With Thanks and Aloha,

"I am a wedding planner and hired Chef Lala and her fabulous team for an entire wedding weekend this April. Chef Lala handled their 110 guests Welcome party in Poipu, wedding in Waimea and day after brunch also in Waimea. Her food was delicious and prepared on time with nice presentation. She was accommodating, personable and really fun to work with. Chef Lala is my go-to on Kauai now, look no further. She has great communication, will help you with more than just your menu, and will make you feel like family. Also to note, her team is amazing. She brings wonderful staff with her that is always ready to help and handles their job with class. We had a flawless wedding weekend."
