Writer David Hanson explores the stunning island of Kauai, the best place in the Hawaiian archipelago to capture island magic on the beach, from the air, and at the table.
Everything on my plate comes from this lush little island. If I concentrate hard enough, I can smell the wild ginger growing near the river, just steps away. Only a remote island, it seems, can offer such a sensual connection to the land. Sitting here at dinner is another instance like that first afternoon with Almeida and the sea turtle swim—wild, unique, and refreshing. Kauai's got that.
