Course Description

A Culinary Tour of Maui

Would you like to eat the freshest fish, the juiciest fruits and the most cutting-edge dishes of Maui? This is your opportunity to do just that. You may know Maui as a tropical paradise but do you know that it is also becoming a mecca for foodies? In Maui, farmers know how to grow, chefs know how to cook and the locals and tourists alike know how to eat!

On this culinary tour of the island, you will drink pineapple vodka, island-brewed beer, and coffee where it grows. You will discover surprising ingredients, innovative architecture and the Aloha spirit. You will learn the culture, what the locals eat, and how they cook.

Join us on this 'onolicious' culinary journey as we revel in the island's beauty, discovering its ingredients, farmers, culture and chefs. Due to Maui's unique growing climate, an abundance of fresh and exciting ingredients can be grown year-round. At the aromatic peak of the island's agricultural season, we will meet the farmers who grow pineapples, breadfruits and taro. We will visit farms and production plants, and will even do some picking! The trip will culminate at the famous Maui AgFest where we will be guest judges charged with determining the best chef on Maui.

There will be ample sampling of delicious foods from all kinds of local restaurants. We'll taste a dish from Maui's own 'Top Chef' Sheldon Simeon, and sample roadside treats such as shaved ice. In addition, you will learn cooking techniques from local chefs and your own chef guide.

When we are not visiting farms, eating at restaurants or hanging with Maui's top chefs, we will take time to enjoy the ocean, the sun and the gorgeous landscape.
