Learn how to make a Filipino Parol (Christmas Star lantern) for the upcoming holiday season. Parol lanterns are displayed outside of houses, businesses, and streets throughout the Philippines as early as September through the Christmas season.
The tradition of parol dates back to the Spanish colonial period when Christians would carry torches and candles in a Christmas Novena procession leading up to their churches for midnight mass. “Parol” comes from the Spanish word “farol” which means lantern. This lantern symbolizes the star of Bethlehem and is an expression of faith and hope.
Participants are invited to join the Filipinos in Mānoa group in the Mānoa Christmas parade this year.

Chef Sayuri is back to share about TENRO — a cooking method she practices using all-natural ingredients such as kalo (taro), homegrown sprouted brown rice, hand-collected salt, ryujin ume (Japanese plum), kombu, and Hawaiian ogo for restoration of body, mind, and spirit. Join us to learn about this holistic cooking method.
Sayuri Cockey has been a private chef for 4 years and the owner of the restaurant Aisunao in Naoshima, Japan since 2001. Her clients have come to her for recovery from illness and a healthy diet. Sayuri grows vegetables and herbs in her organic garden. She will use these vegetables and herbs as much as possible in the TENRO workshop. Visit www.leai.space for more information.
A tasting is included as part of the cooking class experience.
All workshops are made possible with support from the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority’s Kūkulu Ola Program, administered by the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation
