Hawaii Food & Wine Festival to Showcase Locally-Grown Foods

It’s a foodie paradise! In its second year, the HTA-supported Hawaii Food & Wine festival will feature some of the world’s most renowned master chefs, culinary personalities and wine and spirit producers. Unique and flavorful dishes will be prepared using locally-sourced Hawaii produce, seafood, beef, poultry and other ingredients, offering festival-goers a taste of the Hawaiian Islands.

The Festival will be Sept. 6-9, 2012 with signature evening events being held at The MODERN Honolulu, Halekulani, Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort and Spa and Ko Olina Resort, and will be co-chaired by Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong, two of Hawaii’s James Beard Award-winning chefs.

“Building on the success of last year’s inaugural Hawaii Food & Wine Festival, this year we have invited more than 50 celebrity chefs for an unforgettable four-day celebration of food, wine and culture,” said Chef Roy Yamaguchi. “Visitors will get a taste of our islands’ bounty of locally-sourced produce, enjoy the best vintages from master sommeliers and artisan wine makers, and get the chance to experience a once-in-a-lifetime excursion found nowhere else in the world.”

The Hawaii Food & Wine festival is a benefit for the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation and University of Hawaii Culinary Institute of the Pacific. Last year’s festival raised $250,000.
