We appreciate and delight in the food, but what’s cooking beyond the dish? In a new series, Ono Yum steps out of the kitchen and gets a peek at the man behind the chef coat. Meet Chef Steve Knox of Kilauea Fish Market.
ON: What did you have for dinner last night?
SK: Bacon and tomato flatbread with fresh basil.
ON: If you could share a meal with any one person, who would it be?
SK: Scarlett Johansson.
ON: What inspires you in and out of the kitchen?
SK: Music – whatever I am listening to in my immediate surroundings at that point in time.
OY: What is your theme song? Why?
SK: Beck’s “Tropicalia.” It’s individual, eclectic, outside of the box, grooving and all with a tropical vibe — it’s how I like to live my life.
OY: Give away one trick/tip anyone could use in the kitchen.
SK: Always, always, always use a sharp knife.
