Did this: An Evening of Sustainable Cuisine

Share Button

Last night folks lined up for eco-friendly dishes created by some of Hawaii’s top chefs at an event promoting sustainable eating.

“An Evening of Sustainable Cuisine,” held at the Halekulani, featured “green” dishes prepared by chefs Roy Yamaguchi (Roy’s Restaurant), Vikram Garg (Halekulani) and Ed Kenney (town).

Tickets for this “net zero” event — meaning, no carbon footprint here — was $125 with profits supporting the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Kapiolani Community College.

Here’s what we ate:

The ballroom was filled with eco-conscious — and hungry — eaters who support sustainable cuisine and the culinary arts program at KCC. Even "Hawaii Five-0" cast Alex O'Loughlin and Grace Park were in attendance.

my dream of Hawaii is that it will set a world standard for local and sustainable. there has been a lot of movement in that direction.

btw, those pig noses make great desk set pen holders. just bag it, take it home, dry, dye and shellac.

Looks delishush! ;^D Something you'd see on a Top Chef quickfire challenge with their little mini-dishes. You go to all the great food events Cat!

The only thing I found odd, very odd, was the fact that an event promoting sustainable and environmentally conscious foods chose to implement "veal" into a dish, (picture #3). To me, it is two steps forward, one step back.

Great coverage since I missed out on this one. Please note that you misspelled Chef Ed Kenney's name though. Otherwise thanks for the post with all the pix!
