If you haven't been to Hawaii lately, you might not be familiar with the food scene there now.
Spending summers on Oahu with my grandparents, I became familiar with what most people know local Hawaii food to be... loco moco, SPAM musubi, saimin and plate lunch served with two scoops rice and one mac salad. Boy have times changed...

Last year, I attended the 1st Annual Hawai'i Food and Wine Festival, hard to believe that was a year ago already... Not only was this a celebration of what the islands have to offer, in terms of the state's bounty of local seafood, produce, beef, pork and poultry, but also to bring in master chefs from all over the world to create dishes highlighting these local ingredients.
