THE WHAT'S COOKIN' CREW IS BROADCASTING LIVE FROM THE SHERATON MAUI RESORT AND SPA TALKING ABOUT THE UPCOMING HAWAII FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL!

SHELLEY KEKUNA - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, KAANAPALI BEACH RESORT ASSOCIATION

ABOUT KAANAPALI
Kaanapali is a three-mile stretch of beach that has been touted as one of the best beaches on Maui, and even in America. Long ago, these sands and lush gardens were enjoyed by Hawaiian kings and queens who sought a relaxing, rejuvenating retreat. The land itself was once comprised of green sugar cane and taro, grown with the help of the Maui sun and a freshwater spring. This magical spot is steeped in culture, from when it was used as a training ground for Hawaiian warriors in ancient times, to the romantic days of “Old Hawaii” in the ’30s and ’40s, to the present.

Today, couples, friends, and families still gravitate here for all this renowned beach has to offer, but also for its fabulous resorts and condos. And Kaanapali Beach Resort provides the best of the best, with easy access to everything you want to see and do. For beauty, excitement, convenience, and comfort, it simply can’t be matched.

HAWAI’I FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL
Ka‘anapali Fresh has evolved into the Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival Maui! We’re pleased to announce that the Maui event will take place 9/4-9/6, 2015 in the lush paradise of Ka‘anapali Beach Resort and will feature a roster of over 15 internationally renowned master chefs and culinary personalities. Co-founded by two of Hawai‘i’s own James Beard Award-winning chefs, Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong, the Festival in Hawai‘i Island, Maui, Honolulu, and Ko Olina Resort will showcase wine tastings, cooking demonstrations, one-of-a-kind excursions, and exclusive dining opportunities with dishes highlighting the state’s bounty of local produce, seafood, beef and poultry.
