Take a culinary journey around the world and bask in the sun with this legendary event. An homage to the original Cuisines of the Sun® event series from 1991-2001 and curated by HFWF co-founder and pioneering chef Alan Wong, this five-course dinner is an unparalleled display of gastronomic diversity and excellence. Wong is joined by CanoeHouse’s executive chef Matt Raso and renowned California chefs Raphael Lunetta and Celestino Drago. With a strong commitment to using sustainably sourced local ingredients these culinary masters create an eclectic menu featuring dishes inspired by warm climates and destinations that stretch across the Equator. From Ecuador to Indonesia, this iconic event is an expedition taking your palate to far-flung places.
