The food on your plate comes from farms, ranches, gardens, orchards, aqua farms, and other water sources. What remains constant is that someone has to care for it, for the most part, cultivate it. In our culture today, that someone is most likely a farmer, and unless you are drinking water, what is in your cup was also grown by a farmer or tended by a rancher. Our health, indeed our livelihood, depends on these gentle people.
The second annual Kaanapali Fresh, August 30-31, celebrates the farmer. It’s an end of year event highlighting sustainable foods, wines, cocktails and the exquisite cuisine of Kaanapali’s chefs supported by foods grown on Maui at our illustrious farms.
Throughout the weekend, chefs pair with Maui farmers to present the freshest and most flavorful dishes. There are hundreds of commercial farmers on Maui growing everything from strawberries, lettuce, and pineapple to coffee, chocolate and herbs. The exotic breadfruit, dragon fruit, star fruit, and lilikoi are sure to make an appearance. You’ll be able to sample the fare firsthand at various Kaanapali Fresh events.
Because fresh and local matter, you’ll taste the difference in every bite. Two gourmet dinners – Friday’s Progressive Dinner and Saturday’s signature Kaanapali Fresh Food & Wine event – set the bar for culinary feasts.
Supported by the Maui County Farm Bureau, local farmers, food producers, spirit distillers, wine makers, and chefs will be on hand throughout the weekend festivities.
Grab your favorite foodie and come enjoy the bounty of the farm. You don’t even have to get your hands dirty.
