The Primlani Kitchen
Rashmi's passion for cooking blossomed at 12 with her family being her hapless audience. Over time she improved with a dash of perseverance and many a mishap along the way that her family has lovingly endured. She does research her food, and tends to use a published recipe as guidance and always adds that little something of herself to it. The results are generally somewhat unique than classical. Then again unique is what she is, and her quest to find the next new taste keeps her on my toes.
She believes that to achieve a level of excellence one must move out of their comfort zone, and go the extra mile. Therefore she tries all recipes and styles of cooking which she embellishes with her own variations and creativity. It has been her experience that in order to cook, one needs two major ingredients, passion and more importantly love. She makes sure they are amply used in her dishes.
Farm & Table
Executive Chef Ka’ainoa Ravey, is now at Farm & Table. Using his many talents in the kitchen, he creates a seasonal menu (changing several times a year) based on fresh produce, dairy, and meats sourced from our local food area.

The restaurant also offers flights of wine, beer and cheese. Chef Kai has given Gourmet Delights the great honor of adding our products to his incredible dishes.

Gourmet Delights is our BFF for Girls Night In!
Hello, my name is Kimberly and I am a Foodie. Escargot is a comfort food for me. Weird but true. I crave it. Recently, I had just this craving: give me escargot and or I am going to commit Foodie Hari-Kari. Enter the delivery from Gourmet Delights and some of the BEST escargot that I have ever had!
Our evening was topped off by an enormous jar of Griottines - cherries that have been soaked in liqueurs … more than that …. amazing and awesome cherries – that were the perfect topping for the vanilla and chocolate Haagen Dazs ice cream that we had for dessert.
An amazing journey of gastric delights mixed with great company and lots of fun girl talk! It truly does not get better than this!
Set the Mood with Food and Gourmet Delights
While hanging out in Utah with the girls, we received a lovely care package from Gourmet Delights for our Girls Night In evening.
There was a feast of delicious treats … mushroom truffle spread, Veleta sardines, pear-vanilla jam, Henri-Maire escargots, truffle honey and my absolute tip-top favorite Griottines … this was as fun as visiting the food halls at Harrod’s! Actually, you can find most of these products in the best food halls in the world which makes the offerings from Gourmet Delights extra special.
Food has always been a huge part of my family and my life. The kitchen was the best room in the house and where everyone inevitably congregated. My parents are both gourmet cooks and used to host weekly fabulous dinner parties and gourmet groups. As I have gotten older, my love for food and appreciation for the exposure that my parents have be at such a young age have grown. I love to cook, I love to go out to restaurants, I love to tweet so that is what Foodies Unite is all about … Marvelous food … Cook it, Tweet it, Talk about it, Eat it! ~ Chief Taste Tester Kimberly
7 Beauty Uses For Extra Virgin Olive Oil
I fell in love with extra virgin olive oil- All over again! I go through gallons of it in my kitchen and just a few weeks ago I fell head over heels for a blood orange infused olive oil from Gourmet Delights. Since then I’ve been using it not only on my daily salad but also as my favorite beauty product.
“Ciao Florentina” is where I share my passion for cooking with the world, it is a journal of a simple life filled with joy and laughter and sinfully delicious recipes. It is my second home where I hang my apron and my heart.
The Foodie Hurricane Survival Kit
After living in South Florida for many years, I can say that I am hurricane-proofed. Even after living out west, my hurricane ready instincts always kicked in and I kept a “disaster” box filled with all of the necessities but actually, there should be two boxes. Everyone needs the Hurricane/Disaster Survival Kit and then they should also have the Foodie Hurricane Survival Kit.
Who wants to eat spaghettios for 3 days or more waiting for the electric to come back on? NOT ME.
SO this list is all about surviving in style and taste – the items that really get you through the stress of a hurricane.
Damp Cement: The Signature of Rain derives it's name from the trademark scent that follows a storm. The smell of the moist sidewalks is an unmistakneable aroma that always acted as a primer to some of my best work and most productive design streaks. It only seemed an appropriate title for what aims to be my most prolific personal project to date. Damp Cement is a collective of skillsets, united under a single productive roof, that aims to cover all ends of the online-services spectrum and ensure the leading members of their respective field are offering the highest quality products and services to those in need of it.
