Taste of the Nation: Hawaii

Taste of the Nation: Hawaii

Some of Hawaii’s top chefs, such as Hiroshi Fukui, Mark Noguchi, Roy Yamaguchi, Ed Kenney and Honorary Chef Chair Alan Wong, are donating their time and dishes to the first ever Taste the Nation: Hawaii, a fundraiser to help feed the state’s hungry children.

The formula—star chefs serving up local fare along with awareness about families in need—has already raised more than $75 million for nonprofit organizations nationwide since 1988. In Hawaii, the goal for the inaugural event is to raise $50,000 for The Hawaii Foodbank and ‘AINA In Schools, a program of the Kokua Hawaii Foundation.
Ticketholders will dine on small plates from more than a dozen chefs, sample wine and local beers, enjoy entertainment by ManoaDNA and Jake Shimabukuro, and bid on big prizes in the silent auction, all under the stars on the Great Lawn at Bishop Museum.

Taste of the Nation: Hawaii is April 29, 6:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $100 pre-sale, $125 at the door. Every purchase includes a complimentary two-issue subscription to HONOLULU Magazine. Click here to purchase tickets online or call 1-877-26TASTE.
