haw-wine-foodIt’s back! Ka‘anapali Beach Resort and the team of the Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival Ka‘anapali come together to put on “the premier epicurean destination event in the Pacific.” From October 14 to 16, Ka‘anapali will be home to a culinary explosion of wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and remarkable dining experiences.

The party kicks off with the 19th Annual Roy’s Annual Golf Classic at noon on Friday, October 14, at Ka‘anapali Golf Courses. Top chefs, winemakers and pro golfers join in the action, which features a shotgun start and best-ball scramble format, fueled by gourmet food, beer, cocktails and dinner at the 19th hole by Roy’s Ka‘anapali.

On Saturday, October 15, a fun mixology lunch event delves into “The Dark and Stormy Underbelly of Cocktails.” Held at the Westin Ka‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas, “Scandal!” features Jen Ackrill and Aaron Alcala-Mosley talking story about some of the greatest scandals in cocktail history (and making some of those cocktails as well!). That evening rolls out the gala event: “Ka‘anapali: A Chef’s Paradise” from 6 to 9pm at Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa. Thirteen renowned chefs, including the Sheraton’s own Greg Gaspar, and Maui’s Bev Gannon and Isaac Bancaco, create a sustainable feast starring the island’s best seafood, meat and produce paired with amazing wine.

Hawaiian Airlines presents “Soaring Palates” on Sunday, October 16 from 6 to 9pm at Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa. Six chefs prepare six courses that take guests on a culinary journey from the East Coast to the West Coast and across the Pacific to Japan, complete with fine wine pairings by Southern Wine & Spirits Hawai‘i.

And don’t miss the “Grown on Maui Farmers Market” held on the Ka‘anapali Beachwalk on Saturday morning October 15 from 7:30 – 11:30am. The market’s bounty attracts residents and visitors to meet Maui farmers and enjoy the delicious flavors of our island. More than 10,000 people are expected to attend Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival events on Maui, O‘ahu and Hawai‘i Island. Tickets on sale at the website:  http://www.hawaiifoodandwinefestival.com.
