Poke Me

If you've been reading my blog for a while,
you probably already know that I consider myself to be somewhat of a foodie.
Poke is one of my favorite appetizers to order when I go out,
so when someone from Katalyst Public Relations contacted me and told me about the upcoming
I was elated.

The third annual foodie fest will take place at San Diego's Bali Hai Resort
on May 30, from 6 to 9 p.m.

If you're not familiar with Poke,
you're missing out.
Pronounced "POH-keh",
this Hawaiian delicacy is traditionally made with raw ahi tuna,
that is cut into cubes and seasoned lightly to accentuate the natural flavors of the fish.
In other words,
this dish is healthy, fresh and delicious!

With the price of admission,
 attendees will be able to taste each competing chef’s poke creations in both the “Traditional” category (use of tuna is required),
and the “Any Kine” category (anything goes). 
In addition to all the “onolicious” poke you can sample,
15 of San Diego’s best restaurants and food brands will be giving party-goers a taste of their Hawaiian, Asian and South Pacific inspired Island Cuisine,
including plenty of shave ice, musubi, cupcakes, li hing mui fresh fruit and more. 
Sounds like a party that I can't afford to miss!!

On top of all that,
guess who'll be making an appearance as a guest judge?
Mmmm hmm...
my favorite SD chef - Brian Malarkey!

I'll see you there.
