• Build a Better Bowl Legislative Event

  • BIA-Hawaii will hold our annual cooking competition and legislative night on March 12 at Cafe Julia. For more than 15 years, BIA-Hawaii has held the "Stew Challenge" to provide an opportunity for members and legislators to talk story over a delicious bite and a drink. Now, the floodgates are open and we've ventured beyond stew to include any creation in a bowl. Our members build the living spaces that we call home, but it turns out, they create some pretty fantastic recipes too. 

    We'll reveal the theme ingredient soon. Polling is now open if you'd like to cast your vote for the ingredient here. Interested in hosting a team to compete? Give membership a call, 629-7507 or e-mail Pohai Carlos
