Krystine Nakano, Teen Camp Chef

This will be Krystine’s first year with Maui Surfer Girls! She was born in Japan, grew up in Oahu and moved to Maui six years ago. Her passion for food started in her senior year of high school, which carried on to college where she graduated from University of Hawaii’s Maui Culinary Academy.  She is currently working at Tommy Bahama in Wailea.  When she’s not running around in a kitchen, you can catch her running after her two-year old daughter, Naiya.  See some of Krystine’s recent creations!

I am really looking forward to this opportunity to work with Maui Surfer Girls and showcase what I love to do! I hope to give everyone the best experience possible with great moments in food! I know we will all remember our summer with Maui Surfer Girls!”  See below for some of Lucas’s amazing food!
