Hawaii Food and Wine Festival (1 of 13)
Hawaii's premiere foodie fest, the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival, this year consists of four days of food and wine-centric events with more than 60 local, national and international culinary stars gathering for wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and exclusive dining opportunities. The big-name chefs including Hubert Keller, Hiroyuki Sakai, Ken Oringer, Jonathan Waxman and, of course, festival co-founders Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong.
Friday night, the party moves to M, where Chef Hubert Keller will be DJing a set at the Streets of Fire. It's a unique chance to try some exclusive gourmet tacos by the elusive LA taco truck Kogi BBQ and cocktails by seven master mixologists.
