Meet Turtle Bay's New Chef de Cuisine: David Intonato

Chef Intoano

Turtle Bay Resort has a new Chef de Cuisine in the kitchen.

Chef David Intonato comes to the North Shore of Oahu from Nosara, Costa Rica. He will be the Chef de Cuisine for the new and upcoming Alaia restaurant.

An alaia is a thin, round-nosed, square-tailed surfboard ridden in pre-20th century Hawaii. The boards were generally made from Koa wood.

“ My focus will be on refined Hawaiian comfort foods and using local ingredients as much as possible,” said Chef David about his Turtle Bay role.

He will be using ingredients as local as farms across the street from the resort.

“ I’m excited to work with our farm and use all that they will be growing for Turtle Bay. I’m also eager to introduce local favorites like ahi belly to our guests as well.”
