In his first dish inspired by Latin classics, chef Chong offers Big Island abalone ceviche with red chimichurri, bacalao croquettes, and cilantro essence.

His French-inspired dish consists of a terrine of Hudson Valley Foie Gras with cacao/balsamic-glazed pecan crust, pickled grapes, citrus braised celery, and fresh grape sauce.

Here is the plate used for this June 2009 Deep Plate Blog exercise:
