CHEF JUSTINE MA
FARM TO TABLE
Connecting people and creating farm to table experiences for others brings me so much joy. I've traveled to 50+ countries solo, stayed in ashrams, hostels, BnB's, hotels, apts, couches, and I lived in 3 different countries. Wherever I was, I always looked for a safe place with a good mattress, a basic kitchen and good people.
In addition to traveling, I'm a professional chef from NYC that focuses on farm to table ingredients. I've curated underground boutique dining experiences for Lululemon VIPS, wrote food reviews for print and online magazines, worked directly for celebrity chefs at James Beard Foundation events, catered a CBS tv production for 3 months, and solidified my place in the food world through hard work, dedication and commitment.
Now that I'm based on the Big Island of Hawaii, I've built a home from scratch, started to grow my own food, and have the ability to combine my love for food, travel, yoga and service all in one.
When you stay with me, I offer personalized retreat experiences for female travelers and entrepreneurs and it can include private chef services, yoga/meditation/journaling, cooking workshops, farmers market tours, & business/clarity/accountability coaching. Please let me know if there's something you're interested in so I can help create your customized experience!
