Wat je gaat doen

We'll start off outside in the shade with a Fresh Drinking Coconut each to sip on while we get to know each other and an introduction discussion of coconuts: a brief history, their growth cycle, harvesting methods, nutritional values, versatility of uses and overview of the different stages of nuts we'll be working with.

Next you'll have your chance to open your very own coconuts! I'll demonstrate the different methods to safely and efficiently open and process coconuts and work with you one-on-one to learn how to use a variety of special tools, including the machete, coconut key, husker, spatula, and scraper.

Once we collect our coconut ingredients, we'll head into our state-of-the-art kitchen and you'll learn a handful of awesome staple recipes including:

- Best Coconut MILK in the World
- Fermented Probiotic Coconut YOGHURT
- Dried Coconut FLOUR
- And more...

This hands-on kitchen experience is a great opportunity to discover the versatility of such an amazing local ingredient, the nutritional value it has to offer and how you can use this knowledge back home!

Finally with the brown shells you'll make your own coconut BOWL to keep and you'll take home your own jars of coconut goodies and a few surprises!

I am co-author of the recipe book Heart of Raw Food and love sharing my passions of nutrition, health, sustainability, herbalism, and locavore cuisine. I come from a multi-cultural foodie background raised between New Mexico, France and Hawai'i. I have been exploring and curating 100% locally-sourced recipes from the abundance of the Hawaiian Islands for the past 5 years. Coconuts are a huge part of our food-sovereignty in the tropics and I can't wait to share my knowledge about them with you!

Waar je naartoe gaat

We'll meet under a coconut tree of course! Our class is held in the beautiful Hawaiian community grounds of Anahola Marketplace, both outside under our cute gazebo and inside at our professional kitchen. Attending this experience supports native Hawaiians and local efforts in Hawaiian homelands (similar to Indian Reservations on the continent).

This was a fun and unique way to spend a few hours in Kauai - it was my first time using a machete to open fresh coconuts and hopefully not my last! I recommend this class & its teacher. We opened coconuts from 3 different growth stages and tasted the difference in their contents - then we relocated to a commercial kitchen to make milk, flour & yogurt. While we were learning about coconuts in this class several people stopped by and wanted to join us. Guri (host) is a lovely person who is passionate about sharing her love of raw foods with you! She knows her stuff (she and her mom wrote a raw food cookbook together) and is an encouraging, patient, gentle teacher. Guri brought all the equipment so we just had to show up (she recommends that you bring a cooler to take your coconut milk home.) Everything ran smoothly and we left with fresh coconut milk to enjoy, plus coconut flour and coconut yogurt...and even had the option to make our own coconut bowls / soap dishes! This class was the perfect mix of informative & interactive. Even kids could get involved in the process.

I came with my mama. We both loved it and were able to fully participate in everything, even opening coconuts the machetes! The host was a wonderful person, group leader, and knowledgeable about all things coconut. It was informational, inspirational, and overall a fun hands on experience. I understand so much more about the lifecycle of a coconut, how to identify which ones are drinkable/edible, and how to access and process their goodies. I definitely feel a deeper appreciation for all coconuts have to give the world and have already shared my newfound knowledge with all my friends and family! Since coconuts are such a prominent part of Hawaiian food culture, this is a great way to develop a better understanding for what it entails and immerse in the culture further.

Great hands on experience all about coconuts! Guri showed us how to crack, pop, split, husk, scoop, and even milk a coconut. At the end of the workshop everyone took home samples of coconut yogurt, coconut flour and a big jar of our own coconut milk. She even gave us the hard coconut shells and sandpaper so we could create our own bowls. A fun and delicious workshop!

Gury’s coconut class was a great experience! I highly recommend to anyone that wants to learn to open and process a coconut. With Gury’s instruction, patience, and gentle spirit, I was able to open my first coconut with ease. The coconut yogurt was amazingly delicious!- Donna Miller

Guri’s coconut workshop was great fun and a real hands-on learning experience from the get go. We got to open them up with the right tools depending on the maturity of the coconut. Then, we got to turn our freshly opened coconuts into delicious, coconut milk and also dairy-free coconut yogurt. Even though I have lived on Kauai for 20 years and am a teacher of tropical trees and plants, I learned so much. I hope she will offer a Part 2 class in the future. I highly recommend it!

It was truly an eye opener to learn so many new things about the coconut – the richness of its milk and meat, the value it has and the importance coconuts have had for the people harvesting them on islands like Kauai. Guri was knowledgeable and welcoming, she really teaches out of experience and passion and she shared her knowledge with great generosity. It was exciting to practice opening them with the machetes and the other tools provided. We then got to make coconut milk, yoghurt and flour (and take home:-) and I learned to understand that the coconut can be used in so many more ways than what we had time to look into now. Guri really made this an exciting and valuable experience and I feel inspired to learn more from her.
