The Maui Culinary Academy at University of Hawai‘i Maui College is growing the next generation of talented culinary artists. This year’s experience “The World on a Plate: Latin America”, was a celebration of Nuevo Latino cuisine led by celebrity Noble Chefs and the Maui Culinary Academy students they are mentoring.
The Noble Chef was hosted at the gorgeous Fairmont Kea Lani Maui resort and is Maui’s premier food and wine event benefiting culinary education on Maui. A sunset reception featured celebrity chefs showcasing mouthwatering culinary creations spanning the exciting and rich flavors of Latin America. After tasting and sipping, guests sat down to a 3-course gourmet Nuevo Latino dinner presented by the academy’s talented Faculty Chefs, and enjoyed entertainment, a unique live auction and fund-a need, with a grand dessert finale celebration.
All proceeds from the evening support the Maui Culinary Academy. Here is a sampling of photos from the evening, with many more to come.
