Chef Judy Capertina of Haole Girl Island Sweets (yes, she was part of the inaugural Thursday Afternoon Street Market at Kukui Grove Cetner, too!) had coconut macaroons on hand for the Halloween edition of the Kauai Culinary Market at The Shops at Kukuiula Wednesday, where little trick-or-treaters were seen (Helaine Perel said they were doing the Teal Pumpkin Project, too!), and Stacie Chiba-Miguel allowed a sneak peek at the non-candy treats in store for people who can’t have candy.
