Ron Zisook


Chef Ron loves to cook. Working his way through college at Chicago’s Premier caterer, he learned from a host of European chefs and bakers dedicated to quality. And after living in France and connecting with his passion for food and culinary creativity, he moved to Germany to be a sous-chef at a fine restaurant on the Rhine River. Always keen on freshness and local food sources, he has been cooking for over twenty years. He educated himself further in California, hanging out at the Culinary Academy and creating products for farmer’s markets.

Ron and his wife have refurbished a historic former Buddhist temple on the Hamakua coast, now a Yoga B&B, and he’s known on the island for his handmade Gelato Ono (in Hawaiian, ono means delicious)! He loves connecting with people from all over the world serving up some of Hawaii’s best foods.
