Eighth Annual - October 6—28, 2018 - Tickets on sale now!
Congratulations to our Emerging Crop Recipe Contest finalists: Michael Ginor, Eric Oto, and Antonio Tommasi! Be sure to come see who will be crowned Emerging Crop King!
Locally grown emerging crops and 20 craft beers from around the world are the stars at this grazing event in the heart of Kaka‘ako on the brand new Ward Village field. Get a taste of eight different dishes featuring breakthrough agricultural products grown in our islands. Paired them with IPAs and craft brews from Anheuser Busch and Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits.
The event also includes the second Emerging Crop Cook-Off with three chef finalists duking it out for the title of Emerging Crop King Chef with dishes that include moringa. You’ll be able to sample three dishes featuring this ingredient that is a staple in Philippine cuisine.
Last year, the Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival hosted the first Emerging Crop Cook-Off with three of its master chefs preparing Kohala Mountain Sunfish (aka tilapia). Chef Colin Hazama took top honors—come see who takes the crown this year!
