Hazama has been on quite an epicurean journey for most of his life. For many years, guests at Waikīkī hotels got a taste of his extraordinary talent. That journey continues today with C4 Table, a concept that shows off Hazama’s culinary chops and business acumen he learned through the years from legendary mentors Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Alan Wong and Roy Yamaguchi. At just 38 years of age, Hazama is leading a new generation of epicurean pioneers in Hawai’i.
“C” stands for the first initials of the four members of his tight-knit family: himself, wife Christina, daughter Caya and son Cole. As a lifelong spear fisherman, Hazama consistently uses fresh fish on his C4 Table menus, while working with about 20 different farmers around the island.
“Using fresh, local ingredients and produce is at the core of what C4 Table represents,” he says. “My dishes allow me to showcase my island roots through elevated comfort food created by applying the most updated techniques to the best available ingredients locally.”
C4 Table cuisine is currently at the Kaiser High School PTSA Farmer’s Market every Tuesday and Wednesday. There’s also grab and go pre-orders available at M by Chef Mavro restaurant where he collaborates with Chef Jeremy Shigekane.
