“Founded in Hanalei by siblings Hana and Nile Dreiling, Holey Grail has built a cult-following for its donuts made with taro-based dough and unique Hawaiian-inspired flavors using ethically sourced ingredients from locally owned farms. From the 2018 opening of its first food truck, originally starting with a little red hamburger trailer and $100 fryer, they quickly garnered hours long lines of people. Holey Grail now operates two storefronts in Hawaii and a food truck in Waikiki, and has become a much-loved stalwart of the island. This year, Holey Grail made its debut on the mainland, as they prepare to open two shops in Los Angeles [Santa Monica & Larchmont] in addition to a food truck currently parked at the Platform in Culver City and usually at the Mar Vista Farmers Market on Sunday.” Holey Grail’s Co-founder Nile Dreiling joins us.

Restaurateurs Buddy and Jennifer Foy operate a pair of establishments in two different states. The Chateau On The Lake is located in Bolton Landing, New York on Lake George and the Chateau Anna Maria (launched in late December of 2020) is at the Waterline Villas and Marina Resort (An Autograph Collection property) on Anna Maria Island, Fl. “The Foy’s second location on picturesque Anna Maria Island is an interpretation of the Chateau brand with a Southern twist. Chateau Anna Maria’s cuisine is “French inspired with Italian portions.” Jennifer Foy is first-generation Italian, which means everyone must have enough portions. Chateau Anna Maria serves fresh fish, Colorado and Iowa Beef, and other chef selections. The Foys invite you to explore your palette and indulge in their fresh ingredients, attention to detail, cleanliness, and atmosphere.” Buddy and Jennifer Foy are our guests.

This year, Holey Grail made its debut on the mainland, as they prepare to open two shops in Los Angeles [Santa Monica & Larchmont] in addition to a food truck currently parked at the Platform in Culver City and usually at the Mar Vista Farmers Market on Sunday.”

“Holey Grail Donuts are made with taro, an ancient superfood revered for its nutritional, medicinal and ecological benefits, and are fried in organic, fair trade coconut oil. Holey Grail has created more than 60 flavors since its founding, as it strives to spotlight the best of Hawaiian-grown ingredients. Flavors include Strawberry Fields (Kula farms Maui strawberries with a Mizuba matcha swirl), Island Chocolate (glazed in Lydgate Farms single estate dark chocolate), L & L (lemon zest infused sugar, lime curd, finger lime caviar and begonia petals), and Chaga Chai (hot dough rolled in chai spices, chaga mushroom, cinnamon and sugar), among others. Holey Grail has also recently collaborated with various chefs & culinary personalities such as Alexis Deboschnek, Mei Lin and Rick Martinez.”

“While the team is still committed to showcasing Hawaiian flavors, Holey Grail is not compromising on its sourcing ethics as it grows, and will partner with California farmers to source produce, in addition to maintaining its relationships with Hawaiian growers for ingredients like organic taro, coconut oil and cacao. With thoughtful and ethical sourcing, handmade recipes and indulgent flavors, Holey Grail is setting out to offer the world’s greatest donut experience.”

The Chateau On The Lake is located in Bolton Landing, New York on Lake George and the Chateau Anna Maria (launched in late December of 2020) is at the Waterline Villas and Marina Resort (An Autograph Collection property) on Anna Maria Island, FL.

“The Chateau On The Lake sits on lakefront property on Lake George in Bolton Landing, NY and serves seafood, organic meats and lamb. The restored 1800s private home now serves as the site of one of the Top Hundred Restaurants in America.”

“The Foy’s second location on picturesque Anna Maria Island is an interpretation of the Chateau brand with a Southern twist.

“Buddy is French and Irish, which means having a great wine collection which is a pleasant distraction for Buddy.” Chateau Anna Maria is open for breakfast, a small lunch menu, weekend brunch and full dinner service.

“The Foys travel often visiting Jen’s family in Italy. They also love traveling domestically. The Foys know how much it means to have great food plus a great experience during traveling and bring that goal of hospitality to their Chateau guests.”

Buddy and Jennifer Foy join us from Anna Maria Island.
