HFWF 2014: A Farmers’ Food Show and Laulima at He’eia


The Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival continued Friday with two day events, Laulima at He’eia and A Farmers’ Food Show Chef Welcome Reception, an invite-only gathering at Pier 38, where the daily Honolulu fish auction is held. Sponsored by Kamehameha Schools, farmers and chefs showcased the bounty of Hawai’i using locally grown and produced ingredients.

Lots of local and celeb chefs turned out for the informal event, grazing on little bites and mingling with Hawaii’s foodie community.
