Maui On My Mind – Hawaii Food And Wine Festival – #HFWF15

Hawaii Food And Wine Festival on Maui

When we think of Maui, some of the first things that comes to mind are beautiful sunsets, blue ocean and sandy white beaches, scenic drive on the Road to Hana including waterfalls and bamboo forrest and sunrise at Haleakala. I am sure you will have your own addition to what I’ve mentioned. Maybe a wedding or honeymoon here on Maui, the hiking adventures, scuba diving and snorkeling and the famous whale watch.  I love all those.   And now, when I think of Maui, I think of those things, plus.  What do I mean by “plus” – because there are so much more.  the local food, the ocean vodka, the fresh gourmet dishes prepared from “farm to table”, and so on….

Hawaii Food And Wine Festival on Maui

Last night I was invited to attend the “Maui on My Mind” a signature event at the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa. This inagural event on Maui is part of the on-going Hawaii Food and Wine Festival. As Melissa Chang from  Frolic Hawaii described it – This event has “nine renowned chefs took locally grown, raised and caught products and made exquisite new dishes; nine winemakers from around the world offered a variety of wines for pairing. Mixologist Chandra Lucariello of Southern Wine & Spirits and Aaron Alcala-Mosley of Cow Pig Bun created refreshing cocktails that were big hits with the crowd.” It was a fabulous night! I posedt and shared real time photos  last night. This morning I created an album on Facebook: go to Hawaii Food And Wine 2015 photo album to see the food photos, and more!

It was a successful inaugural event and I am looking for the next one in year 2016!

  1. My wife and I have booked our first trip to Hawaii for next year. We are coming from Australia and I am loving this blog. The food and wine festival looks awesome. I CANT WAIT!!

    Thanks for the tips!

  2. Public speaking can be danitnug. I suggest you think about the most important, or encouraging, or supportive thing you want the people in the audience to know. This is the hard part figuring that out. Then tell three stories that relate to that idea/concept and bring it back to that point each time. In public speaking it is the rule of threes Have no more than 3 important points (though 1 is certainly enough!) Illustrate it 3 different ways. If you want to see what I mean, view some of the talks over at . I am sure you will be inspiring and motivational. You always are over here. Good Luck, I am sure you will not need it.:)
