Culinary Heroes Presented by The Kahala Hotel & Resort: California Dreamin’ Featuring Jeremiah Tower

A hero can be defined as someone who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities. Join #HFWF18 as it launches the inaugural First Annual Culinary Heroes event presented by The Kahala Hotel & Resort with legendary Jeremiah Tower as the first chef to be recognized for this honor.

The first Culinary Heroes event, themed California Dreamin’, will feature a six-course wine paired dinner, inspired by the culinary genius and pioneer of modern American cuisine, Jeremiah Tower. California Dreamin’ will be reminiscent of the start of the food revolution at Chez Panisse and Stars Restaurant where Tower set the stage for California cuisine, later known as modern American cuisines. Tower, along with a team of five Hawaii celebrity chefs, will leave you dreamy as each dish unfolds with a perfectly paired wine provided by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits of Hawaii. Shep Gordon, celebrity talent manager and founder of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, will moderate a special live interview with Tower about his life and journey as the “Last Magnificent.”
