Planning the Limu Poke Leviathan

Planning the Limu Poke Leviathan turned out to be fairly simple because we just wen duplicate the planning of the Shoyu Poke Showdown.  One small kine difference was that we included couple more poke competitors (Ono Seafood and Tamashiro Market) due to people giving us the "shame on you" finger shake for not including these winnah places in the Shoyu Poke Showdown.  So we took their feedback to heart and made sure to include these places this time.

The biggest challenge was that there was more judges this time.  About 18-20 people said they was interested in judging this challenge and we ended up having 12 judges and their family/friends.  That was too much people for my manini living room so we had to find a bigger location.  Thanks to the folks at Luana Hills Country Club for letting us make house in one of their banquet rooms, we were able to accommodate the larger number of people attending this tasting. So lavish us guys getting, yeah?

But pretty much that was the only differences in the planning and everything else was same same.  We did the side by side judging style as the other challenges where all the limu pokes were lined up with their random letter. Then the judges served themselves in any order they wanted and scored each one. We did weighted scoring again with taste=50%, texture=30% and presentation=20%.
