The next Noble Chef event will take place on Saturday, November 1st, 2014.

The University of Hawai’i Maui College and Maui Culinary Academy proudly announce the 18th annual Noble Chef: The World on a Plate: La Dolce Vita benefit gala and dinner at the Fairmont Kea Lani Maui in Wailea, Hawai‘i.

Over the years, The Noble Chef has attracted thousands of food lovers who lend support to Maui Culinary Academy’s (MCA) student scholarships, endowments, and programs. Raising funds is only one aspect of this highly anticipated food and wine event. It also serves as an ideal training ground for Maui’s burgeoning chefs and is a showcase for the culinary talents of MCA’s industry partners, faculty and students.

Our guests will enjoy:

“World on a Plate: La Dolce Vita” Theme: The culinary theme celebrates cuisines from the culinary “hot spots” of Italy.

Reception Featuring Student Mentorship: A selection of Maui’s top celebrity chefs will present gourmet appetizers at the cocktail reception created and prepared by a chef-student team. Prior to the event, MCA students work side-by-side with the chefs for hands-on training and mentorship. Being involved in the process – from developing a menu item through the delivery of locally-sourced, world-class cuisine – prepares students for their transformation into the next generation of professional chefs.

Elegant Dinner: A sit-down dinner celebrating gourmet Italian regional cuisine will follow, prepared and served by the Maui Culinary Academy faculty and students.

Fine Wines & Spirits from around the Globe: This year we will be pairing the reception and dinner courses with fine wines and spirits.

Unique Auction: Exciting live auction packages.

In 2013, the event sold out and attracted guests from near and far.
