Building Community – One Fork at a Time

This year, TasteHawaiiOnline.com wants travelers to journey to Hawaii to meet the local foodie community on Maui.

Local chefs, Chef Marc McDowell, Chef Beverly Gannon, Chef Ryan Luckey, Chef James McDonald and Chef Brian Etheridge, will share their passion for Hawaii’s new farm-to-table movement through cooking demonstrations; food, wine and dessert tastings; lectures; panel discussions and 5-star gourmet dinners.

The “Invitation to Foodies” seminar is a 3-day culinary event that explores Hawaii’s new eat local movement.  Attendees will gain knowledge that every foodie should know, personally and professionally, and meet local chefs, farmers and sommeliers.

This event benefits three Maui non-profits.  The non-profits are the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Maui, Haku Baldwin Center and Ka Lima O Maui.
