The Hawaii Food and Wine Festival celebrates its sixth year of bringing the world’s top chefs and producers to Hawaii in the name of charity. Proceeds from the festival support local beneficiaries committed to sustainability and cultural and education programs in the islands.
The 2016 festival began with a spring launch reception and hukilau beach cookout at the Kahala Hotel and Resort. Attendees were introduced to this year’s lineup of chefs and events including Yoshihiro Narisawa of Narisawa in Japan, Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski of State Bird Provisions in San Francisco, and Ivan Orkin of Ivan Ramen in New York City.
Expertly crafted dishes and cocktails were prepared by some of Hawaii’s most talented chefs and mixologists on the tranquil grounds of the Kahala.
