Honolulu (KHON2) – Hurricane season comes to a close on November 30th and Zephyr Insurance has some creative recipes to make the most of your canned food emergency supplies.
Zephyr Insurance teamed up with Chef Mark Noguchi and his brother Mitch Noguchi, President of Noguchi & Associates, a locally-owned and operated insurance agency of more than 35 years for a cooking demonstration.
Mark looks at what’s going to go bad first in the pantry for inspiration, or as he says “cook what get”, in this case using leafy greens that had started to wilt with a can of Corned Beef. He advises a two to one ratio of meat to vegetables. He added onions, hot sauce, pepper, and chopped Bok Choy and green onions to finish it off.
Mark also shared details about the non-profit Chef Hui and its mission while Mitch talked about the 3 different types of insurance policies that may be needed to protect homes – Homeowners, Hurricane and Flood.
Zephyr Insurance is the leading provider of hurricane coverage in Hawaii (hurricane season is (June-November). Zephyr Insurance has preparedness information and tips to help homeowners be ready during hurricane season every June-November.
