About Us

Forged to Table


Forged to Table Hawaii is a live fire cooking experience in Kailua Kona, Big Island. Guided by fire, we combine both our crafts and passion in an unique outdoor cooking experience with the Pacific Ocean view.

Fusing both Brazilian and Hawaiian cultures, we create hand forged tools, and rustic open-fire meals influenced by gauchos from South of Brazil and Argentina. The menus are inspired by local tropical ingredients from the island.

Forged by Neil, cooked by Flora and gather by Danny our mission is to bring people around the fire and reconnect them with their human essence ... through handcraft and food.

Neil was born and raised on the 

Big Island of Hawaii. He grew up in a family of tradesmen. An electrician by trade himself, he stayed busy 

with other hobbies.  

However, it wasn't until late 2016, he started blacksmithing ... bladesmithing to be more accurate. Following in his great-grandfather's footsteps, his new path has been made. 

He has now decided to combine his love of food and knives with Forged to Table and his wife, Flora.
