This year’s annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival, which was founded by Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong, was absolutely spectacular, from the stunning island setting to the delectable dishes created by some of the world’s most gifted chefs. Chef Nobu was in attendance, along with over 50 celebrity chefs and colleagues Sang Yoon, Hubert Keller, and many more.

Several events took place over the 6 day culinary celebration, including tastings, sophisticated dinners honoring the world’s best chefs, and the signature Halekulani Master Chefs Gala which Nobu participated in. This particular event was said to be the highlight of the festival, as guests were able to experience a lavish seven-course dining experience. The “Third Annual Halekulani Master Chefs Gala Series: Around the World with Seven Chefs” was a huge success for both the chefs and guests! Nobu presented his Nobu Style Ahi Poke with Jalapeno Salsa, along with fresh dishes from various chefs like Uni and Abalone.

Congratulations on a wonderful festival and celebration of food!
