HawaiiCooking Classes, Cooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Hawaii is becoming a magnet for devoted foodies, connoisseurs and anyone who’s willing to try something new, so it’s no surprise that Hawaii’s farm to table movement is creating quite a culinary stir. Just stroll through any local farmers’ markets and you’ll be delighted by the abundance of locally grown and locally made foods, like sweet Kula strawberries, handmade cheeses, Big Island Abalone, and rich Wailua-grown chocolate. Now imagine these flavorful ingredients in the hands of Hawaii’s top chefs and you’re in for a delicious treat. In addition, the islands offer a variety of local comfort foods in off-the-beaten path locations, distinct local dishes such as plate lunch, pupu, loco moco, shave ice, and malasadas. Today, the renewed interest in sustainable agriculture is yielding delicious surprises throughout the state.
