Kupu Maui was an organization that used to put on an outdoor dinner for a limited number of people, at a different Maui location each month. Dania Katz was the originator and first organizer. James Simpliciano was the original chef.
Past dinners have been at such diverse locations as the Bailey House Museum in Wailuku, Alii Kula Lavender Farm in Upcountry, Laniupoko Beach Park south of Lahaina, Piliani Coffee Farm on West Maui, and Malama Pig Farm in Haiku. The multi-course dinner is completely different at each event, but is always unusual, gourmet and delicious.
The only way to get into one of these amazing dinners, was to make a reservation on their website, on the first day they go on sale, two weeks before each event. You used to be able to sign up for their newsletter on the website so you will receive advance notice of each future Kupu dinner.
See below for photos I took at a Kupu I attended on the pig farm.
These dinners have not been done by this organization since about 2016.
