In partnership with the Maui Culinary Academy, Slow Food Maui presents a 9-part Taste Education series devoted to Maui’s local food producers. The sessions will be held the last Wednesday of each month, 6 pm – 7:30 pm, at The Leis Family Class Act Restaurant at the Maui Culinary Academy, UH Maui College, Pa’ina Building, 310 W. Kaahumanu Ave., Kahului, Maui, Hawai‘i.
Individual sessions are $15.
The series of nine is $125.
Walk-ins are welcome. However, reservations are highly recommended due to limited seating per session. For more information or to purchase by phone call Charlene Kaʻuhane, Slow Food Maui Education co-chair, at 808-243-2290.
“Slow Food Maui supports one of the founding principals of Slow Food International which is to honor the people who grow and produce the food we eat,” said Kaʻuhane. “This series brings local food producers in our community to the forefront so others may learn about their work, how their product is made and where to find it.”
“We also hope this series will motivate others to create more agricultural value-added products,” said Chris Speere, Slow Food Maui Education co-chair. “Having a thriving local food system relies on extending what we grow into delicious, quality products. Maui has so many talented people. The Maui Culinary Academy is honored to partner with Slow Food Maui on this educational series.”
Whole Foods Market Maui will provide supplementary ingredients to implement the Taste Education series at Maui Culinary Academy.
The Grand Taste Education will be presented at the 4th Annual Maui County Ag Festival, Saturday, April 2, 10 am – 4 pm. Tickets are on sale for $25. For more information, visit the Maui Country Farm Bureau webite.
