Aloha, my friends! I’ve just returned from a glorious week in paradise, waking up to blue skies, tropical sunshine, the smell of the ocean and plumeria in the air, fine sand between my toes, and all the food and wine a girl could dream of.
(Don’t pinch me, I’m not ready to wake up yet).
When I was invited to cover the 29th Annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival, I knew it would be an amazing experience – I mean, a four-day culinary extravaganza of tasting dishes from the island’s best chefs, and literally hundreds of wines at my fingertips…in Maui?! What’s there not to love about that?
Not only was it my first time to the Kapalua Wine and Food Festival (which btw, is the oldest running festival of its kind in the country – one year older than the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, in fact), it was my first time to Hawaii!
I’m officially hooked. I’m considering giving it all up here on the mainland to become an island hula girl.
The folks at KWFF have something really special going here. I can’t wait to give you the scoop on it all! For now, here’s a sneek peek at what I had the pleasure of experiencing (anything for you, my dear readers) 😉
