Waipahu HIgh School hosted a fundraising dinner on campus Saturday, with all the food made by the school’s culinary students. Hannah Mae Amores and Ranie Cabang were part of a group making sushi handrolls to order.
Fried rice with edamame was prepared in the kitchen, to be served with a chicken dish.
It was an ambitious menu of dishes with international flair, such as Chinese-style cold ginger chicken.

Elaine Matsuo heads the school’s culinary program. Registrar Steve Miyashiro organized the event for Friends of Waipahu High School, to benefit school programs.
The longest line was at the sushi handroll station. One student estimated they made 200 rolls in the first half of the night.
