Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival’s Keiki in the Kitchen® Makes Maui Debut Oct. 2

This year, the Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival’s (HFWF) popular Keiki in the Kitchen® event makes its Maui debut Oct. 21, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Whalers Village in Kā‘anapali.
Headlining the event is perky YouTube baking star Rosanna Pansino, known for her series Nerdy Nummies. She will lead two cupcake-decorating sessions for kids—at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.—using her signature unicorn cupcake decorating kits that she is generously donating to the event. Pansino joins 17 celebrity chef guests for a day of food and fun for the whole family.
“Keiki in the Kitchen® has been an amazing opportunity for our children on O‘ahu to be inspired by famous chefs from all over the world, and to learn about the many aspects of food,” says HFWF CEO Denise Yamaguchi. “They learn directly from world-famous chefs what they do in the kitchen, find out from farmers where food comes from, participate in fun food activities, and learn how food relates to health and lifestyle. We are proud that we are able to launch Keiki in the Kitchen on Maui this year in partnership with Whalers Village and their retailers who will create family-fun activities and special offers.”
As at Keiki in the Kitchen® on O‘ahu, chefs participating in HFWF Maui events will be on hand to interact with kids—taking pictures together, signing autographs, and answering questions. The lineup includes such heavy hitters as Blaine Wetzel of Willows Inn, Lummi Island; Brandon Jew of Mr. Jiu’s, San Francisco; and Rick Tramonto of Restaurant R’evolution, New Orleans; along with Maui favorites Abby Ferrer of Star Noodle and Jayse Sato of Umi Sushi; and, of course, festival co-chairs and influential chefs Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong, who are both dedicated to supporting culinary education in Hawai‘i.


Cupcake decorating with Rosanna Pansino: The baking star will lead two cupcake decorating sessions, at 11:30 a.m. and at 1:30 p.m. Each child will receive decorative pieces from Pansino’s unicorn cupcake decorating kit.
