Hawaii Food and Wine Festival
The 4th Annual Hawaii Food and Wine Festival
Aug. 29th – Sept. 7th, 2014
The Hawaiian Islands is hosting a premier wine and culinary event. The multi-day Hawaii Food and Wine Festival features more than 75 internationally renowned master chefs, culinary personalities, and wine and spirit producers. Foodies and wine enthusiasts will be rewarded with wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and farm-to-table movement advocates.
The Aloha State’s two native sons and James Beard-winning chefs Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong are the festival creators. Their aim is to showcase the state’s bounty of local produce, seafood, beef and poultry, highlighting the unique cuisine.
Yamaguchi is the owner of the world-renown Roy’s, with more than 30 international locations. Alan Wong’s Restaurant was honored with a place on the “Top 10 of America’s Best 50 Restaurants”.
The majority of the events will take place on O’ahu, as well as Maui, which was added to the itinerary last year. Recently, organizers announced that The Big Island, for the first time, will have a day added to the culinary- and wine-focused schedule.
The Big Island is home to amazing grass-fed beef, coffee, abalone and kampachi. It’s also known for creative dishes inspired by locally sourced ingredients.
The Waikoloa Resort on the Big Island, in partnership with the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Hilton Waikoloa Village, will host a sit-down gala. The Modern Honolulu, a magnificent hotel located on the famed Ala Moano Blvd is another host property. This cosmopolitan resort has its finger on the pulse of the culinary scene in Hawaii. Iron Chef Morimoto has a signature restaurant on the premises.
