University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Athletic Director Pat Guillen started up some friendly cooking competition with his fellow athletic directors (AD) from the Hawaiʻi universities. The ADs are making their best dishes then challenging another AD to see if they can handle the heat in the 2020 Hawaiʻi AD Grindz challenge.

Inspired by UH Mānoa men’s golf coach Ronn Miyashiro and his cooking tutorials on ‘Bows Kitchen, the competition kicked off with Guillen who demonstrated his favorite comfort food—Mom’s Fried Chicken.

“We cannot wait to see our students, fans, corporate sponsors and entire community back on campus at our events when it is deemed safe,” says Guillen in his video. “Until then enjoy the fun videos and I am anxious to see what my colleagues and friends at UH Mānoa, Hawaiʻi Pacific and Chaminade cook up!”

Guillen then challenged UH Mānoa’s AD David Matlin, who was quick to act and fired up a new ‘Bows Kitchen episode featuring his famous “Chicken As Good As It Gets” recipe. In the video, Matlin replied to Guillen, “On behalf of Rainbow Wahine and Rainbow Warrior nation, challenge accepted!”
