Did this: Hawaii Foodbank’s Great Chefs Fight Hunger

The Hawaii Foodbank held its annual Great Chefs Fight Hunger this past weekend, a fundraising gala in their Mapunapuna warehouse. About 600 guests enjoyed grazing from 20 different booths with creative dishes by  renowned Oahu chefs, plus wine, beer, sake, cocktails and soft drinks from several beverage companies.

It was such a big event, I broke the photos into two galleries — one of the food, drinks, and chefs; and one of the party crowd.

Sansei Seafood brought Chinese-style braised short ribs with potato fondue, roasted Hamakua mushrooms and lotus root.

To add to the excitement, there was a live auction, silent auction, live entertainment, and a “Cellar Door”: You could buy keys to unlock a door, and the winner got all 60 bottles of high-end wine behind it.
