The good folks at Capische are going all out for one of their own, a benefit for Chef Duane Tsuburaya this Sunday, August 15, 2010 starting at 2:30 pm and going till 7:30. The event on the Hotel Wailea lawn will feature entertainment all day from Arise, Unified Soul, Derrick Sebastian and Moku. The fabulous all you can eat Capische buffet is going to be an awesome sight, and they are also going to have a sushi station with classic maki sushi and inari sushi. The slider station is going off with Lamb Sliders with Maui Shaved Onions, Sicilian Spiced Ahi with Roasted Pepper Aioli and for the vegetarians in the house Grilled Portabello Mushrooms with Rosemary Aioli.
Some of the highlights in the buffet will be Lasagna Bolonese made from a ragu of housemade pork sausage, beef and veal with locally grown tomato marinara made from scratch, Chef Kris Ethredges’ famous Traditional Adobo Chicken made from the classic simple ingredients of Garlic, Bay Leaves, Shoyu and Black Pepper, and Shrimp Carbonara served with jumbo prawns, house cured pancetta and penne pasta. At this point you may not care about the salads but I am excited about the Caesar is made from locally grown romaine lettuce from Mike Makoi Farms and our caesar dressing with dark and white balsalmic. The tomato caprese is made from Locally grown tomatoes, Italian imported Bufula Mozzarella with maui shaved onions and a coriander vinaigrette. Of course for the sweet tooth they have got you covered with plenty of dessert including cupcakes, cookies and Five Liqueur Tiramisu. To keep your munchkins occupied while you eat a keiki corner will have a jumping castle, snow cones, balloon animals, face painting and even a Wii gaming center.
If you like to combine eating with shopping you are in luck, the silent auction is packed with items like a handcrafted canoe in which will be customized with the colors and graphics, Dinner for two at Feast of Lele, multiple gift certificates for restaurants like Five Palms, Pizza Madness, Koiso Sushi bar, Golf rounds at Wailea Golf Gold and Emerald Courses, Maui Sporting goods sunglasses by Costa del Mar, fishing supplies, photography session from Sara Quinn photography, and even massage gift certificates. Mulligans on the Blue is the official afterparty, extending the festivities for those that have wrist bands from the event. Their always fun and bustling Sunday Nights will donate $1 from every drink sale to the cause!
This is going to be an awesome party for a great cause, just before Christmas 2009 Chef Tsuburaya has been diagnosed with cancer “Stage III Follicular Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma”. Tsuburaya says, “The type of lymphoma I have is non-curable, but is manageable with treatments. It is unknown if or when my treatment will be completed. Currently I am undergoing chemotherapy treatments at the Pacific Cancer Institute of Maui.” We know he is fighting like hell right now to beat it, so the least we can do is join his party right? Amakebelieve company has designed a shirt for the event selling for $20 each. For those that can’t make it and they would like to donate they can go to any First Hawaiian Bank and donate to “Duane’s Day of Hope.”Call Capische @ 879-2224 to order your tickets, Pre-Ordered Tickets: $30 Adults (21 +), $25 (13-20), $15 (6-12); Ticket Price includes Buffet plus 1 Drink.
