The Hawaii Food and Wine festival will bring culinary-inspired events and celebrity chefs to multiple islands over the month of October.

Now in its eighth year, the festival includes events on Oahu, Hawaii Island and Maui. There are several multicourse tasting dinners, events for kids, numerous wine tastings and workshops.

The schedule opens Oct. 6 on the Island of Hawaii with the "Under the Tuscan Sun" six-course tasting dinner at Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa and closes on Oct. 28 with a gala tribute dinner in honor of influential French chef Paul Bocuse, who died in January. The event at Halekulani in Waikiki will feature a six-course, wine-paired dinner. The lineup of more than 150 participants is peppered with Top Chef alums, Michelin star recipients and James Beard award winners, such as Michael Voltaggio, Francois Payard, Michael Mina, Masaharu Morimoto, Hubert Keller, Michelle Bernstein and George Mavrothalassitis....”

Has anybody attended one of these? There will be a Maui version while I am there, but I don't know if it is worth the $200/person entrance fee.

If you can afford it and are a foodie, it is worth it. I’ve had the pleasure of dining at several of the participating chef’s restaurants (where they were the actual chef in the kitchen) and their food is fantastic. Ticket prices are higher because of the celebrity chefs and the caliber of the event. If I was on island during this time, I’d attend.
