Ryan Day, executive chef of product development, Palama Meat Co., Kapolei
First professional cooking job:
At The Alexander Inn in Connecticut. I started when I was 15. It was an eye-opening experience. Very hot and crazy busy.
My parents’ friends had an older son who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. He was a product development chef for Nabisco, but had worked at many restaurants in NYC. Speaking with him and working with another chef at the Inn from the CIA, I was inspired to go to the CIA.
Favorite dish at his own place:
Currently here at Palama Meat, my favorite dish is our May’s Teriyaki Chicken. I like to barbecue it. It has a nice flavor and stays juicy.
Favorite dish at a Hawaii restaurant:
Kalua pig. I can eat that until I’m sick.
What’s always in your refrigerator?
I would say the most consistent item in my refrigerator is beer, but I always like to have some cheese and wine too.The blues, Cheddars and Bries are my favorite.
