It's Aloha Friday Again:  Waikiki Food and Wine Festivalwaikiki statues

I was reading "MidWeek" online at www.midweek.com and was thrilled to hear about the Waikiki Food and Wine Festival scheduled for 9/29-10/1.

This September, Waikiki will be filled with the culinary creations of local and international master chefs, the unique flavors of the Hawaiian Islands, and all the excitement and festivity of what will become a premier date on Hawaii's events calendar.

The event is the first Hawaii Food & Wine Festival, to be held Sept. 29 to Oct. 1. It is being chaired by Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong, both celebrated chefs, restaurateurs, James Beard Award-winners and familiar faces to local foodies.

With a theme of "Taste Our Love for the Land," the festival will showcase the best of Hawaii: our chefs, outstanding food, and local produce and products. Besides Yamaguchi and Wong, 30 internationally renowned master chefs will star in the production, including Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto of Morimoto Waikiki and colleagues from throughout the United States, Canada, Singapore, Japan and Australia. Many of the chefs are noted for their sustainable "farm to table" approach to cooking.

Chef Morimoto will kick off the festival Sept. 29 with "Streets of Asia: Morimoto & Friends" at the Waikiki EDITION hotel. The next evening will feature the "Halekulani Master Chefs Gala Dinner Series," and the final night will be "From Mauka to Makai: Hawaii's Sustainable Future" at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort and Spa.
