Kimié Miner Headlines Hawaii Food & Wine Festival's Decadence Event October 27

The Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival’s annual beachside event at Ko Olina Resort is one of its most popular, and this year it adds a new musical dimension—award-winning singer-songwriter Kimié Miner takes the stage, with the sparkling lagoon behind her.
Miner’s song “Bamboo” won this year’s Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Song of the Year. The catchy tune is a Hawai‘i radio staple and is the soundtrack on TV commercials. Her compositions capture the island soul and are the perfect accompaniment to the food and drink that celebrates Hawai‘i’s rich ingredients and ever-growing reputation as a culinary destination steeped in tradition and culture.
Twelve chefs will be set up on the beach fronting Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa and Four Seasons Resort Ko Olina, along with bars and wine stations. In the chef lineup are Rachel Alvarado of Kona Coffee Purveyors; London-based contemporary Vietnamese cuisine master Bobby Chinn; Jason Fox of Commonwealth in San Francisco; Neal Fraser from Redbird in Los Angeles; Rory Herrmann of Herrmann Hospitality Group on Los Angeles; Kyle Higa from Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa; Ravi Kapur from Liholiho Yacht Club in San Francisco; Hubert Keller from Fleur by Hubert Keller in Las Vegas; Richard Polhemus of Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina; Nancy Silverton of Mozza Restaurant Group in Los Angeles; Andrew Sutton of Disneyland’s Napa Rose in Anaheim; and Marcel Vigneron of Wolf in Los Angeles.
As people wander on the sand they can stop and sample stellar bites made with Hawai‘i-grown  ingredients, such as Neal Fraser’s Kaua‘i shrimp ceviche with chicharron, Hubert Keller’s ricotta cavatelli with cream of sea urchin and baby abalone, and Rachel Alvarado’s macadamia nut honey-charred pineapple with Kona Dulcey crème.
The food will pair well with wines from An Approach to Relaxation, Brewer-Clifton, Au Bon Climat, Jonata, Silver Oak Wine Cellars, Favia Wines, Joseph Phelps Vineyards, Keplinger Wines, Carlisle Winery, Secret Door, Maritana Vineyards, Terminim, Scherrer Vineyards, Opus One Winery, Dark Star Imports, Linne Calodo, Braida, Capichera, and LaRue Wines.
And nine mixologists will be crafting cocktails. Guests can sip creative beverages by Jen Ackrill of Sky and Top of Waikiki in Honolulu; Raymundo Delgado of Stripsteak; Kevin Diedrich of Pacific Cocktail Haven in San Francisco; Meaghan Dorman of Raines Law Room, Dear Irving and The Bennett in New York City; A-K Hada of PDT in New York City; Dave Newman of Pint & Jigger in Honolulu; Justin Park of Bar Leather Apron in Honolulu; Jason Vendrell of Handcrafted Restaurants in Kihei, Maui; and Andrew Woodley of The Street in Honolulu.
Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, and Four Seasons Resort Ko Olina both offer special room rates for HFWF attendees. People can make bookings online at hawaiifoodandwinefestival.com/travel.
