Ulu Workshops on Maui, Oahu and Kauai

Posted on Dec 16, 2013 in Main

Ulu, or breadfruit, has been a staple in Hawaii for ages and now there is a movement to encourage its utilization and availability throughout the islands.

“Breadfruit – From Tree to Table” is a workshop sponsored by Ho’oulu ka ‘Ulu,  Kamehameha Schools and the Hawaii Department of Agriculture. The half-day workshops will be held on Maui, Oahu and Kauai in early January.

Interested in growing, selling or processing ulu (breadfruit)?

Breadfruit—From Tree to Table workshops will be held statewide from January 9 – 11, 2014 on Maui, Oahu and Kauai.

Breadfruit—From Tree to Table will assist Hawaii’s breadfruit growers in supplying grocery stores, restaurants and farmers markets with high quality breadfruit, and help chefs become more familiar with breadfruit handling and preparation in the kitchen. Backyard growers and home users of breadfruit will also find the workshop pertinent to home and community use of breadfruit.

Breadfruit—From Tree to Table is presented by the Ho‘oulu ka ‘Ulu—Revitalizing Breadfruit project and is cosponsored by the Hawaii Department of Agriculture and Kamehameha Schools.  The Oahu workshop is also presented by the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum.
