Event description

Description

In 1991, Shep Gordon, Roger Verge and Dean Fearing helped launch the Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine Movement. The movement started with 12 chefs committing to support local farmers by using the finest locally grown ingredients on their menus. It was an important new movement in diversified agriculture in Hawaii, one that truly reflected Hawaii’s island culture. Farmers and chefs were talking about what they needed to do to support one another, in ways that would ultimately elevate the local culinary talent and Hawaii’s food scene.

On Thursday, July 18 at ‘Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach, EAT THINK DRINK: Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine – The Evolution of Agriculture in Hawaii will bring together thought-leaders in the agricultural and food industry to share their thoughts on how the collaboration between farmers and chefs changed and continues to fire the fuel on how we eat and what we grow.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Samuel Yamashita, Ph.D., will share excerpts and thoughts from his book, Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine: The Movement That Changed the Way Hawai‘i Eats. For his book, Yamashita interviewed thirty-six chefs, farmers, retailers, culinary arts educators, and food writers. His book offers a bold original analysis of its cuisine and impact on the islands.
