Culinary Heroes Honoring Rick Bayless, Culture: One Plate at a Time

The Hawaii Food & Wine Festival honors Rick Bayless at its second Culinary Heroes launch event for his incredible contributions to the culinary world. The influential, community-minded chef, and winner of the first Top Chef Masters and seven-time James Beard Awards was instrumental in introducing traditional Mexican cuisine to a Tex-Mex-eating America in the 1980s, and is a champion of sustainable agriculture and culinary education. He will be joined by Hawaii’s James Beard Award–winning chefs George Mavrothalassitis, Alan Wong, and Roy Yamaguchi in preparing a five-course menu with wine pairings.

Guests will be assigned seating prior to this event. We can only guarantee guests who purchased tickets together will be seated together.
