Highlights from the 9th Annual Mangoes at the Moana Ultimate Mango Throwdown

The 9th Annual Mangoes at the Moana took place on Saturday at the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa.

Events that day included a mango contest, a silent auction, a cooking demo, and more, but my personal favorite event of Mangoes at the Moana was the Ultimate Mango Throwdown.

Eight chefs prepared mango-licious dishes:

Savory Ginger Carrot Mango Panna Cotta | Mango Smoked Kampachi | Mango Juniper Berry Gelee | Mango Chili Injector | Mango Chili Salt (Chef James Aptakin - Turtle Bay Resort)

Mango Madness (Chef Michelle Karr-Ueoka - MW Restaurant)

Makaha Mango Chicken Tikka Masala | Mango Spiced Curry with Chicken and Pandan Rice (Chef Keaka Lee - The Pig and the Lady)

Mango "Sognare" - Chilled Cappelini | Mango Gazpacho | Sherry Vinegar | Cayenne Pepper | Shrimp (Chef Hiroyuki Mimura - Taormina)

Mango Bruschetta | Mango-Mac Nut Honey Yogurt | Vanilla Caramel Toast (Chef Lee Anne Wong - Koko Head Cafe)

Grilled Mango Buratta | Mango White Balsamic Agrodolce | Roasted Grape | Nalo Arugula | Basil Oil | Black Lava Salt (Chef Ronnie Nasuti - Tiki's Bar and Grill)

Mango Braised Pono Pork | Coconut Ragout | Kau Corn Pudding Cake | Pickled Mango Kale Slaw (Chef Robynne Maii - Fete)

Fisherman's Mango Coconut Ceviche | Coconut Plantain | Local Micro Herbs (Chef John Salcedo - RumFire)

The winner of this year's Ultimate Mango Throwdown for both Judge's Choice and People's Choice was Chef Michelle Karr-Ueoka - she's a repeat winner!

If you missed Mangoes at the Moana, you still have time to enjoy mango-inspired dishes through the rest of the month, as the Veranda, Beachhouse, and Beach Bar will offer mango dishes, such as the “mango soft shell crab taco” and the“tiki mango cocktail."

Mahalo to Mangoes at the Moana for the complimentary tickets to the Ultimate Mango Throwdown!
