The third and final day of Ka’anapali Fresh brought guests to Maui’s award-winning brunch at the famed Ka’anapali Beach Hotel, Hawaii’s most Hawaiian Hotel. Chef Tom Muromoto served a buffet fit for Ali’i. The Champagne flowed freely throughout the brunch while dancers performed beautiful hula to songs by Hawaii’s time honored composers.
It was an extensive buffet that included a wide spectrum of flavors Maui has to offer, both kai and aina. The breakfast brunch included everything from local favorites such as fried rice, Hawaiian style pork lau lau and assorted breakfast sausages to smoked beef brisket, crab legs, and sautéed clams in Thai cream sauce. Ulupalakua Ranch provided raised lamb for rotisserie and a wide variety of fresh vegetables from Syl’s Produce Company were on display. The omelet bar and fresh fruit stations were popular stops for the early morning guests.
The hit of the morning was the Bloody Mary Bar where master mixologist, Chandra Lucariello helped diners create their own signature drink. As morning slowly became afternoon, visitors enjoyed lunch items such as chicken stir fry with green curry, fried breaded pork chops and hibachi chicken. The assortment of desserts that awaited made saving room imperative. Sweet and tart, light and rich, there was something for everyone at Maui’s award winning brunch!
