Sample Food and Wine in Hawaii

The Hawaiian Food and Wine Festival is set to take place from the 6th of October through to the 28th this year. Like it does every year, this event will be showcasing over 100 of the hottest chefs, mixologists, and winemakers in the world. The festival celebrates the culture, people, and history of Hawaii, and the events which make it up take place over 3 islands, attracting more than 25% of its guests from the US mainland and further abroad.

Roy Yamaguchi, the chef who created the festival alongside his counterpart Alan Wong, explained that the festival was created in order to allow for the culinary aspect of the island to once more take center stage. He explained that the star power of the chefs participating in the festival have made a huge impact on the food scene in Hawaii and abroad, and that this was evident from the rapid increase in restaurants featuring Hawaiian themes around the world, as well as the recent expansion of James Beard Award nominees from Hawaii recently.
