Hāna Supper Club is a unique dining experience bringing together friends, neighbors and inquisitive travelers alike. We rove to exclusive locales on Maui’s magical east coast to enjoy delicious meals prepared by Hāna’s most talented chefs. We use the freshest local ingredients possible from Hāna’s own farmers, fisherman and ranchers.
At the supper table we gather side by side, passionate for food, hungry for adventure and thirsty for knowledge.
Having worked in every front of the house position from Hostess to Food and Beverage Manager, I craved to take my talents and knowledge out of the traditional dining room setting. The thing I am most passionate about is creating beautiful things for others to enjoy. I live by the motto to “Make Life Beautiful. One way of doing that is through enjoying a fantastic meal, sipping on a lovely libation, sitting at a beautiful set table and engaging in interesting conversations. By combining my love of entertaining, event design and making guests euphoric by filling their bellies with delectable delights, Hāna Supper Club was created.
When I am not creating beautiful events, I make my home with my talented fiancé, Kevin, our cat Mongo and silly dog, Charlie in a beautiful cottage overlooking the Hāna coast where we eat well, drink, dance, laugh and love!
This Month’s Chef – Anna Lieding
Chef Anna is a force to be reckoned with, always pursuing her goals with determined vigor. She is a Hāna girl, born and raised in upper Nahiku and after graduating from Hana school in 2003 as valedictorian she studied at Brown University earning a degree in marine biology. In 2006, shortly after graduation and traveling she moved back home in 2007 and worked on one of the boats for pacific whale foundation. She soon became Captain Anna Lieding of a 65 ft catamaran.
Anna not only is an amazing fisher woman, she also free dives catching octopus and lobster for friends and family. As she was always in the kitchen cooking up a storm even if it was for just herself, she followed her passion for cooking and enrolled herself in to Maui Community College culinary program and aced it as I knew she would. Her passion for the ocean, gardening, and cooking brings an aroma and flavors to the table like no other.
Fun fact: Chef Anna’s first job was working in the office at Hana Arts during high school.
