Hawai´i Food & Wine Events Return to Big Island

September 28, 2021, 3:39 PM HST

Hawai´i Meals & Wine is returning to the Massive Island.

Two functions are scheduled for Oct. 1 and Oct. 2, 2021, at resorts on the Kohala Coast. Limited tickets are offered, even though time is a component for those who want to attend. The aspects of every occasion are as follows:


  • Function Title: Pele & Poli‘ahu
  • Date: Oct. 1, 2021
  • Time: Check-in 5:30 pm, evening meal commences promptly at 6 pm.
  • Area: Mauna Kea Beach front Hotel
  • Celebration description: An historic tale of immortal sibling rivalry is introduced to lifestyle in this culinary dance of hearth and ice. Legend has it that Pele, the goddess of volcanic hearth and her sister Poli´ahu, the goddess of snow, challenged every other to a holua or picket sled race. The intense competitiveness is reported to have divided the Island of Hawai´i into Poli´ahu’s tranquil north and Pele’s fiery south. In a tribute to the island’s juxtaposing landscapes and lore, this grand tasting celebration provides you a distinction of flavors and tastes. Chef de Cuisine Ryan Brannigan of Manta at the Mauna Kea Seaside Lodge shares his abilities in local fare and collaborates with celebrated cooks from across the US to bring you a mouthwatering harmony of hearth-roasted bites, incredibly hot off the grill served along with refreshingly awesome dishes and sips.
