#HFWF15: Paina on the Pier

Share Button

We’ve come to love this annual gathering of farmers, chefs and foodies at Pier 38, as part of a special event of the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. As in past years, the casual grazing party has chefs, restaurants and farmers showcasing Hawaii’s fruits, vegetables, meats and other ingredients.

Here’s a look at Friday’s paina:
